Benefits: If your goal is clear, soft and smooth skin with a natural glow, steaming your face will help to achieve this. Steam is one of the best ways to unclog pores and detoxify skin. It softens the skin’s surface and helps free any dead cells, dirt, bacteria or other trapped matter that could cause breakouts or uneven complexion. In addition, steaming helps stimulate blood and oxygen circulation which is necessary for the reproduction of new and healthy skin cells.

In order to boost the effectiveness and benefits of your steam treatments, EcoGenics has developed a proprietary blend of herbs which have natural cleansing and toning properties. EcoGenics 100% Natural Herbal Facial Bath contains: Lavender, Sage, Peppermint & Spearmint, Chamomile Flowers and Fennel Seeds.

By adding our herbs to your steam treatment, you will enjoy an aromatherapy home spa treatment that will leave your skin cleansed, toned and refreshed.

Directions and Pre-cautions:  Steaming your face might seem simple enough, however there’s a right way and a wrong way. Taking preliminary precautions will ensure your safety as well as help you get the most benefit from your steam treatments. Water temperature is the first consideration. Most professionals recommend a water temperature at about 110 degrees Fahrenheit (43 degrees Celsius) and caution getting no closer then 12 inches (30 centimeters), while others recommend a distance of 18 inches (45 centimeters). You need to be careful not to let your face get too close to hot steam. If you let your skin absorb too much heat, the increased blood flow could lead to broken capillaries (tiny red spider veins) under the skin. You could also get scalded and harm your skin. Therefore, please keep a safe distance from the steam.

Steaming Treatment – Home Use: Now that you know the cautions of water temperature and how close to get to steam, you are ready to begin the steaming treatment. First, to prepare your face before your steam treatment, wash it to remove makeup or impurities. Step 1: Spoon 3 tablespoons of the Herbal Facial Bath /Natural Toner into a heatproof glass, stainless steel or ceramic bowl. Step 2: Prepare water to the appropriate temperature and let it stand for approximately 5 minutes. Next, pour the heated water over the herbal mixture. Step 3: Tie your hair back and place a towel over your head and shoulders to form a tent over the bowl and your head. Lower your face over the steam for about 7 to 8 minutes. When needed, periodically lift your face and towel up to vary amount a steam to your face.
See chart below for illustrated Step 1, 2 and 3 instructions.

All skin types can benefit from facial steam treatments. As a general rule of thumb, it is recommended you incorporate a steam treatment into your beauty regime once a week. Exposing your skin to steam for periods longer than the prescribed time or more than once a week, can dry out your skin. `

For an extra cleansing boost after your steam treatment, rinse skin with cool water and apply EcoGenics Mineral Masque Soufflé. Remove Masque and to ensure your skin is properly hydrated, follow with EcoGenics Skin Serum and/or EcoGenics Moisturizer.

Other Considerations: If you have certain skin conditions, such as rosacea or a fungal infection, sweating and increased blood circulation caused by steaming might do more harm than good. In addition, if you have severe acne, steaming your face sometimes can make it worse. If you have any of these conditions, it is a good idea to check with your doctor before you start with a steam treatment.
