Facial steaming is something I don't do nearly enough! I'd forgotten how much I love it for it's calming sense of relaxation, beautiful scents and all the beneficial effects on my skin. Steaming your skin enables the skin's pores to open up and the goodness from the botanicals to really get to work on flushing out toxins and debris from the skin, decongesting the pores and boosting the circulation helping the skin detoxify and deep clean. Ideally this should be performed once a week for maximum beneficial effects.
Our Floral Facial Steam is blended with our own organically home grown flowers and petals chosen specifically for their skin loving benefits.
This blend contains:
Chamomile - soothing and anti-inflamatory
Calendula - promotes skin healing and cell renewal
Lavender - balancing and antibacterial
Rose - softening and nurturing, and smells amazing!
Directions for use - Firstly, thoroughly cleanse the face and neck with our cramy lathering Facial Cleansing bars or super gentle Mandarin & Jojoba Cleansing oil. Take a teaspoonful of flowers and sprinkle into a large heat proof bowl. Add 3 or 4 cups of just boiled water. Drape a towel over the bowl to trap the steam and leave for a couple of minutes. Place your head over the steam and cover with the towel, being careful not to touch the water. Steam your face for 5 - 10 mins then splash with cold water and moisturise with one of our Facial Treatment Oils.
Discontinue use if irritation occurs.
Strain out the petals and use the infused water as a refreshing, softening facial splash or floral toner. It will keep in the fridge for up to a week. Use it up fresh. This would also be lovely mixed up with our Clay Face masks or Oat and Lavender face scrub for a really flower powered deep clean.
Enough for 6 - 8 weekly steams and floral toning splashes.
