Selene Facial Steam
Selene Facial Steam is a multipurpose steam. It ranges from brewing small amounts of the herbs for a preservative-free toner or mist that is good for two days. Adding the strained or unstrained tea to a bath, and using the tea as an incredible hair rinse..
If you are new to steaming, take a moment and allow yourself to become converted. 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.
Regular steaming with Selene Facial Steam 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.
We recommend using a generous amount of the Cistus & Moonlight Face Mist after steaming.
This steam is based on the most radiant, freshest herbs and flowers. We use the herbalist-recommended parts of the plants; sometimes the flowers, sometimes the leaves. The steam delivers tremendous benefits to the skin. It is beautiful to look at both dry and brewed, and has a refreshing yet soothing, lightly floral yarrow-green-tea-chrysanthemum aroma.
For all skin types, especially acne or redness prone.
Our small-batch, organic skin care is based on alive, unrefined, plant-based ingredients. We want to guide you in how to protect the “aliveness,” the life force contained within. If an herb remains fully potent for a year from the moment of harvesting and drying, a skin care product made using that herb extracted in water or included in a mask will remain fresh for about six months. Our products are properly and adequately preserved with high-end natural cosmetic preservatives, but they are not overloaded with the preservatives. We want your products to be safe, but if we used higher percentages of preservatives (like those needed to obtain a shelf life of two to four years), the products might be drying, irritating, harsh, or sensitizing for some customers. Additionally, many plant constituents can’t express their adaptogenic intelligence and full range of healing action if they are subdued with high percentages of antimicrobials.Browse All Products
