Flowers + Herbs Facial Steam
La Flora Sagrada Skin
Facial Steaming is a gentle way to cleanse and purify your skin. The warmth and humidity of the steam opens up the pores and draws out impurities and toxins. It is a great way to prepare the skin for extractions and/or your favorite face mask which will penetrate even deeper applied right after the steaming. Steaming is recommended on a weekly basis for healthy and glowing skin. It promotes the release of toxins and encourages cell regeneration and immunity.
Use: Add 1 tablespoon of the dried floral + herb blend to a large bowl or pan and cover with 3-4 cups of boiling water. Set aside for about 5 minutes and let steep. Drape a towel over your head and lean in over the bowl forming a kind of tent so the steam can't escape. Relax and let the healing properties of the herbs + flowers work their magic on your skin.
After 5-10 minutes of steaming splash cool water on your face and gently tap dry with a clean cotton towel, apply your favorite moisturizer or mask.
