The Many Benefits Of Steaming Your Face

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. This practice has recently gained popularity in the health and wellness world due to its numerous skin care, and overall health benefits. The best of which include…

Steaming Is Relaxing

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.

Herbs, Herbs, Herbs

As always, herbs make everything better. In the case of facial steams, herbs add an element of aromatherapy by improving the effects of detoxification and relaxation.

Formulated with 100% Organic, Natural, Vegan & Cruelty  Free ingredients, Sixth Sense Herbal Face Steam has been uniquely designed to nourish, rejuvenate and heal the skin, all the while providing a relaxing skin care ritual. And the best part is, it doesn’t take any fancy equipment – just some hot water and a cloth…
