Facial Steam Bath acts to deep cleanse and purify the skin. At the same time, it provides warmth and moisture to relax and open the pores and loosen congestion. It is intended for use with Dr.Hauschka Cleansing Clay Mask. This preparation contains a healthy combination of active herbal extract ingredients, blended to work effectively. Daisy (Bellis perennis) extract has been used traditionally for blood purification and for treating skin disorders. Amongst the Celts the Daisy was dedicated to St Margaret and it was the flower of the Patron Saint of Farmers. It stimulates the blood's warmth process, enhances kidney and metabolic activities and stimulates the elimination of waste products. Nasturtium (Tropaeclum majus) extract acts internally on the lungs, kidneys and bladder and appears to have a regulating effect on these organs.
Water/Aqua, Bellis Perennis (Daisy) Flower Extract, Alcohol, Tropaeolum Majus Extract, Hamamelis Virginiana (Witch Hazel) Extract.
Problem skin should have a steam treatment once a week; other skin conditions should be treated once a month. Fill a bowl with hot water. Depending on the size of the bowl, add up to 2 tablespoons of Facial Steam Bath. If you are using a facial sauna, adding 1 teaspoon to the water is sufficient, apply Eye Contour Day Balm to your eyelids and Lip Balm to your lips, protecting the sensitive skin around these areas. Lean over the bowl and cover your head with a towel, only steam your face for five minutes when you first begin to use Facial Steam Bath, but this can gradually be extended to ten minutes. Very sensitive skin should not exceed five minutes, immediately after steaming your face, apply the previously prepared Cleansing Clay Mask onto your moist skin. Facial Steam Bath contains herbal extracts and may have a sediment at the bottom of the bottle - this is harmless, just shake the bottle gently to put the sediment back into suspension before using it. If you have very sensitive skin on your cheeks, then you should apply some Rose Day Cream for extra protection.
