Astringents and toners provide a good foundation for healthy, clean skin. The point is to penetrate the pores, remove excess dirt and oil, and then tighten the pores. As is the case with most beauty care products and cosmetics, commercial astringents are loaded with synthetic chemicals. 

Many natural plants and herbs possess amazing astringent properties. This is an organic herbal facial tea made with herbs and botanicals known to help tighten pores and tone the skin.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can Everyone Use an Herbal Facial Steams?

Although many people benefit from natural herbal facial steams, they are not appropriate for everyone.

Steam facials should not be used for those with cystic acne or rosacea and heat and sweating can often irritate eczema.

For folks who have extremely sensitive, damaged skin or who are prone to developing tiny broken veins or capillaries, herbal steams can be irritating and should be avoided unless suggested by a health-care provider.

People with health conditions such as asthma or heart trouble should consult their physician before doing facial steams. If you have sensitive or allergy-prone skin, you should always do a skin patch test before using any new herbal product.

Just like you should not sit too long in a steam room, you do not want to facial steam too long or too often. Listen to YOUR skin and your body! A word of caution-- If you feel light-headed or woozy during steaming, stop at once.
