The warm, aromatic steam of our botanical blend of nourishing herbs and flowers in our Facial Steam will surround you in a peaceful and tranquil essence. If that isn’t enough to make you want to try facial steaming, allow us to detail the benefits accompanying the process. Detoxifying your skin and body is all the craze these days, and for good reason--steaming serves a true purpose, which is why it is so widely used by professionals. If you’ve ever had a professional facial, you’ve probably experienced a facial steam conducted by your esthetician. The warm steam helps soften the skin and hair follicles, and loosens up congestion and blackheads caused by debris or excess sebum. When followed by a gentle cleanser, this congestion can be cleared out, revealing clean and visibly smaller pores.
There you have it, your skin is rid of toxins and debris and ready to be pampered with your skincare products. We recommend starting with a toning face mist to prepare your skin's barrier for deep hydration. Your freshly steamed and cleansed skin will readily absorb our bestselling Immortelle and Myrrh Facial Serum and leave you with hydrated, radiant, and plump skin. We adore the physical benefits that facial steams give our skin, however, we hold just as much value to the self-care aspect of the experience. It differs from your daily skincare routine in that you aren’t mindlessly putting on your skincare products. Rather, you are taking the time and energy to immerse your body and mind in a calming environment, thus allowing yourself to relax your nerves and fully unwind. Taking good care of your skin is important, but taking care of your mind and soul will shine through in your presence.Get Your Steam On Begin by bringing 4 cups of water to a boil, and drop about a handful of the beautiful mixture of lavender, chamomile and calendula flowers (to name a few ingredients) in the pot. Allow this to steep for 5-10 minutes. Remove the mixture from the stove and create a steam tent by draping a towel over your head, resting your face about 2-4 inches away from the steaming herbs. Get comfortable, put on some relaxing music, and let the steam work its magic for about 5 minutes. If your skin is looking a bit red when finished, have no worries--this is the result of the steam increasing your circulation. Overcome the dullness of winter and embrace the natural flush of your skin.
