I absolutely love this treatment. Many people describe feeling calm and relaxed. This respiratory steam can also be used as a facial steam, so many benefits like cleanse your skin, cleanse your lungs and the perfect antidote for flu/colds. Using steam on your face opens up the skin pores, clears the dirt, and eliminates the acne-causing bacteria. It also softens the blackheads and whiteheads caused by blocked pores, making it easy to get rid of them. My skin is sensitive to a lot of facial products and anything natural I'm all for it. One of the best benefits about this steam treatment is the break down of congestion and mucus. Find out the breakdown of each ingredient below and thank me later ☺
