Regular steaming with Selene will result in more supple, hydrated skin over the long term, and also helps the skin to better absorb other products. For this blend, Ava chose herbs that heal acne (yet are nondrying and nonirritant), reduce inflammation, cool, refresh, and soothe.

Steaming your face will save you lots of expense on products and facials, not to mention lots of heartache over your skin's condition, because it is so profoundly healing and effective at improving the skin's health and beauty. When we receive an e-mail from a customer stating that everything clogs their pores or that the skin dryness they experience is oppressive and persistent, we recommend a steam and all their problems are solved. And if you don't have the time or patience for steaming, try a facial compress with a designated soft facial towel. You won't need a hydrating mask or a facial often, if ever, if you use a high-quality, well-composed herbal steam. Period.

For all skin types, especially acne or redness prone.

Place a generous handful of the herbs (4 to 5 tablespoons) in a heatproof nonreactive bowl (a stainless steel pot will allow the tea to remain hot longer than a ceramic bowl). Prepare a towel to cover your head during the steam session and wash your face, removing all makeup. Pour 1 to 2 cups freshly boiled water over the herbs to make a strong infusion. Lean over the bowl to caress your face with the pleasantly hot (not scorching) steam. Cover your head with a towel to allow as little of the heat to escape as possible. The hot steam will help open the skin's pores and the herbs will penetrate deeper to aid purifying, healing, and moisturizing. Steam your face for 15 to 30 minutes (a longer session is much more beneficial; reheat the tea if needed halfway through the session).

Follow with a face mask of your choice or a deep-acting serum, such as Ferns and Moss Face Serum.

Strain the herbs and refrigerate the infusion for up to 2 days. Warm it and use as a face mist, facial compress, or hair rinse for all hair types, or add it to your bath.

Store away from direct light exposure to protect the fragile botanicals within.

Earth Wise Beauty hand-package each batch of the steam in clear bags made of natural cellulose. The bags are made from wood grown in sustainably managed plantations and are marine degradable and certified compostable.

I never experienced facial steams until recently. If you haven't tried it, I highly recommend giving it a go. All it takes is a quiet moment .. 15 - 30 minutes of pure botanical bliss to effectively heal and improve your complexion. Earth Wise Beauty constantly amazes me at just HOW effective their products are for delivering visible results.
