Essential oils and herbs combinations used in  facial steam/ facial scrub for different skin types

After a long day, nothing beats throwing your hair up, taking off your makeup and unwinding. With Facial Steams, you can relax while refreshing your skin! This DIY spa experience helps to maintain healthy skin and release stress. By adding botanical herbs {lavender, rose petals, calendula, Rosemary, eucalyptus, etc}, facial steams support the opening of pores, detoxifies and  purifies, hydrates, softens and improves circulation, leaving you with healthier, fresher-looking skin.

Face steaming: This process helps to free any dead cells, dirt, bacteria or other trapped matter that could be causing breakouts, and it can allow your skin to better absorb any other products you might use after the steaming.

Face scrubbing: For Men, its the easiest way to make sure that you’re going to look great after each shaving session as it helps reduce ingrown hairs and bumps.
For women, I don’t think much explaining is necessary because women know and understand the value of a good exfoliation.

If you’re using an epilator or a waxing kit or facial waxing strips and you get acne from these hair removal methods, a good facial scrub can solve part of the problem. You should use it right before removing any facial hair, no matter what method you’re using.
It’s not only about having your skin incredibly clean, a regular washing is never going to do that. It’s also about how smooth and soft your skin gets because the dead skin cells are removed.

People with dry skin can really benefit from  a good facial cleansing  because firstly, they completely remove the dry skin and secondly, the moisturizer applied immediately after will be better absorbed by the skin..

Ideal for :
Men and women, young or old.
