Facial Herbal Steam for Oily Skin

(1 customer review)

Original price was: R90.00.Current price is: R80.00.

Herbal steaming is extremely relaxing and beneficial to the skin.

It is one of the simplest ways to deep clean the skin – eliminating toxins, opening pores, increasing blood circulation (bringing oxygenated blood to the surface of the skin), brightening your complexion, softening and plumping wrinkles and hydrating the skin – at the deepest layers. We recommend steaming your face once a week. Follow with a facial mask for the best results since the pores are opened and skin is softened after steaming; allowing the masque to penetrate deeper into the cellular level.

Each Steam Blend is hand-selected and

blended per order.

No unnecessary filler herbs are added,

only Pure Organic Herbs

Facial steams are also excellent upper respiratory decongestants.

1. Before steaming, cleanse your skin – removing all dirt and make-up. Only steam with a fresh face.

2. Put dried herbs (1 tablespoon)  in a large heat-proof bowl and cover with 500ml of boiling water.

3. Create a tent by wrapping a towel around your head and draping it over the rim of the bowl. Hold your face about 30 cm from the bowl. Close your eyes and enjoy the relaxing steam for 5-15 minutes.

*Steaming is not recommended for extremely sensitive skin, severe inflammation, infection, sunburned or windburned skin, rosacea, extreme acne skin, or when many small broken capillaries are visible. Avoid using herbs if you are pregnant.*
