Heard of facial steaming before? Remember that thing with the towel and bowl your mum used to do to you as a kid when you had the flu…..well that, in essence, is facial steaming. Facial steaming is the key to unlocking great skin, unclogging pores and increasing blood flow for that gorgeous goddess glow – the ultimate end goal right?
What does steaming do?
When you put your face over a bowl of hot water, the warm steam rises and begins to break up the tiny pieces of dirt and debris that clog the pores of the face. Hot steaming encourages sweating leading to further flushing of the pores. The warm heat from the steam then increases blood flow to the skin of the face which means more oxygen. Think plump hydrated looking skin.
Facial steaming softens the surface of the skin. It also makes it open to absorbing nutrients and vitamins. This is why facial steaming will change your life. Try a face steam before using one of our clay masks. By steaming first you have primed the skin ready to absorb the botanical actives all our face masks contain. Your skin will also be ready for a natural exfoliation to remove all the dirt and debris you have just brought to the surface of your skin.
