We all know why we should cleanse and wash our face, and as a result we do so each day. The beauty secret which we may not have heard of however is ‘steaming’. Steaming is much like a bath for your skin, cleaning out any dirt or debris from the inside out. The warm steam cleanses our pores by causing us to sweat, opening our pores and pushing out any unwanted clutter.

The nature of steaming pretty much forces you to connect to your breath and it is this aromatherapy-like ritual that becomes soothing to the body and mind.
