Basic Face Steam hydrates and nourishes the skin, soothes irritation, reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and promotes mental peace and relaxation. This amazing experience titillates all of your senses while promoting healing inside and out.
How Do I Use It?
Add 4 cucps of water to a pot and bring it to a boil. While that's heating up, remove a generous 5-finger pinch full of the herbs from the Face Steam bag and add it to a glass bowl. There's about 5 steams worth of the blend in each bag. Obtain a white (or light-colored) towel and setup your bowl at a table, with your towel ready, and put on relaxing music. As soon as the water comes to a boil gently pour it over the herbs in the bowl, and immediately take a seat at the table, with your face hovering over the bowl and drape the towel over your head creating a steam tent. Sit as far away from the steam as you need to in the beginning, and as the water cools you may want to get closer. PLEASE EXERCISE CAUTION throughout this process.
While youre under the steam tent, enjoy all the benefits of this process: the hot steam cleansing your pores and opening the sinuses, the herbs and essences working their magic on your skin, the aromas relaxing and soothing the mind, and visual delight of the golden flowers delicately floating in the water (this is why we use a light colored towel, dark towels make it dark and you can't see the flowers).
There is no set amount of time to stay with the steam, but an average of 7-10 minutes seems to be most beneficial. When finished, simply sit up, remove the towel, take several deep breaths and enjoy the overwhelming sense of gratitude and joy for giving yourself this experience. Gently pat your face dry and moisturize.
While your skin is soft and warm, this is an ideal time to exfoliate. We suggest using a small amount of BASIC Body Scrub to gently exfoliate the face and neck. Use the warm steam water to rinse. Pat dry and apply a moisturizer. We highly reccomend using the BASIC Goddess OIl as a daily face, neck, and chest moisturizer.
