1. Cleanse.

Using a moisturizing facial bar or foaming cleanser, cleanse the face. This will effectively target the oil on the greasy skin of the T-zone, without removing any of the moisture from the dry skin on your cheeks.

2. Exfoliate.

Exfoliate to avoid flakes of dry skin clogging pores. Using a gentle facial scrub or a flannel, rub the cheeks lightly. Go more intensely when tackling the greasy areas of the face to help loosen blackheads.

3. Steam.

Boils a kettle of water and pour into a large bowl. Add four drops of rosewater to the bowl - this hydrates the skin and will prevent the steam drying out the cheeks while it tackles the nose. After the hot steam has dispersed, lower your head over the bowl, keeping it 10 inches of the water. Put a towel over your head and stay put for up to 10 minutes.

4. Mask.

On big pamper sessions like this one, go for the double mask. Shop around for a hydrating moisture mask apply to your cheeks and throat and use a clay-based mask for your oily areas. Leave the masks on for 10 minutes and rise off with tepid water. Apply your normal light moisturizer afterwards.
