Time for holistic beauty care
Beauty comes from within. Not only from the personality, which of course contributes a lot to it. But your mental well-being also has a very concrete effect on the condition of your skin. Unfortunately, how strong it often only becomes apparent when things don't go well. A hectic everyday life can be just as much a trigger as events that suddenly drastically shut down your normality. In times like this, mindfulness is more important than ever. Find your way back to emotional balance. Master the mental tree pose and help your skin from within!
Yoga is a great keyword here, because it is known to be good for both the body and the psyche. This holistic approach is incredibly effective for beautiful and healthy skin. This is how self-care rituals help you, in and feel good with your skin. One of my very personal favorites for inner balance and radiantly beautiful skin is the facial steam bath. Of course you can just heat water and hang your face over it, but the tips below will make it really effective and deeply nourishing!
Hot steam for beautiful skin
When your skin is deflated, you're steaming! For everyone who wants fine, clean and rosy skin the facial steam bath is a hot tip. Especially when it combines steam with an exfoliant and nourishing oils, as detailed below. So this self-care ritual is good for you in several ways:
The steam opens the pores and makes you sweat a little. This is house cleaning for the skin and washes away impurities.
Disinfectant additives such as salt or chamomile clarify the skin gently and naturally.
Nourishing oils or moisturizing serums can work deep into the skin.
The steam bath stimulates blood circulation and conjures up a rosy complexion.
The heat relaxes the facial muscles. It makes you look more relaxed.
Then the skin cools down and the pores contract again, which smoothes and refines the complexion.
Enjoy about 20 minutes Time for yourself – a moment of rest in between or to prepare for falling asleep.
What you need for the facial steam bath
Holistic beauty care doesn't have to be complicated.It is often the simplest measures that have the greatest effect. And that's the great thing about the facial steam bath: It's super effective and you usually have everything you need at home. As that would be:
- A large cooking pot, about 5 cm high filled with water
- salt and organic chamomile tea
- A medium and a small towel
- One face scrub of your choice
- Your favorite face oil
- Optional: a moisturizing serum for after
🌼 Your trio for beautiful skin: The steam opens the pores, the salt disinfects and chamomile soothes the skin. This is how a particularly gentle cleaning succeeds.
There's no such thing as impossible - how to replace what's missing
If you don't have any of these handy, don't worry. You can easily substitute most of them or leave them out if necessary. Instead of chamomile tea, you can just as well use chamomile oil or fresh herbs. Chamomile grows from May mostly on embankments or along the side of the road.
No peeling in the house? You can just touch it yourself. My tip for this: water and chickpea flour. I have tried many recipes and this very simple one has convinced me the most. Chickpea flour impresses with its fine grain and peels much more gently than sharp-edged sugar or salt crystals. It is also suitable for the face. By the way, the article tells you how to get the perfect peeling With the right peeling everything goes smoothly!
Because after applying the facial oil, you should really use an oil, not an emulsion. If you don't (yet) have a facial oil you trust, a natural vegetable oil such as argan, almond or jojoba oil will do. Otherwise I would like to warmly recommend our FIVE facial oils. They are specially composed for different skin needs.
☝️ Tip: If you want to use a homemade scrub or facial oil, mix it beforehand and cover it until it's your turn!
