Everyday living brings us face-to-face with a vast variety of dirt and toxins. We need to cleanse them from our skin, and herbal facials are one of the best ways to cleanse the face and promote glowing, healthy skin. Herbs such as comfrey, elder blossoms, chamomile and rosemary will cleanse and soften skin while drawing out toxins and impurities from the pores. Comfrey rejuvenates the skin cells; chamomile promotes even skin tone and helps relieve conditions like eczema. These herbs are gentle enough to apply to the sensitive area around the eyes, yet effective enough to see tangible results.
