The steam bath for salon-style skin cleansing!

 

The exciting life of a Olala beauty puts our skin to the test, between make-up, pollution, lack of sleep and the heat of the spotlight (laughing smiley), our skin needs to be pampered!

The urge to go to the beauty salon for a good skin cleansing then arises, but for lack of time or budget it’s not always easy, so let’s go for a deep cleansing at home!

The first step is careful cleansing (see my article on cleansing with oil). Once the skin has been cleansed of make-up and the day’s impurities, it’s time for a steam bath!


The hot steam opens the skin’s pores, helping to extract impurities deep down!

This facial sauna will optimize the treatments you apply afterwards and provide you with a moment of relaxation.

It’s also ideal for winter ailments, as it helps decongest and open up the respiratory tract. By incorporating an essential oil, you’ll not only have pretty skin, you’ll also be ready to fight off nasty colds!

That’s why you shouldn’t go out for 2 hours after the steam bath, as the skin and respiratory tract are more sensitive to external aggressions!

 

What you need:

  • A heat-resistant bowl or salad bowl
  • A towel
  • An essential oil (optional and only in the evening!)
  • Water straight from the kettle (saucepans work too!).

Quick and economical, you’re ready to cocoon and relax!

Once the water has been brought to the boil and all its impurities removed, it’s your turn!

Optionally, you can place a drop of essential oil (tea tree, for example) in the bottom of the bowl. I add it before adding the water, simply because it’s easy to drop 3 drops when we only wanted one, and then it’s easier to wipe off the excess!

(Be careful with essential oils, which are small but strong: make sure you know which ones to choose before adding them, and only use them in the evening, as they can be photosensitive).

You pour in a large quantity of hot water, place your face on top of the bowl, cover your head with the towel and you’re in your own personal hammam!

We stay for 10 to 15 minutes, taking long breaths, our facial muscles relax, sweat begins to bead on our face, the steam takes effect…

Renew every week for dry, combination and oily skin. For sensitive skin, once every 15 days is enough, and be sure to use slightly cooler water!

You can dry your face or use a fresh floral water and apply your favorite cream, which will enhance its properties tenfold!
