Then Jourdan decided to be extra generous and reveal her Sunday evening skin perfecting routine. One of the items in her reveal was Skin Owl's Beauty Steam. It's a combination of skin loving herbs that take your facial steam to a new level. It sounded amazing.....but a bit pricey.
The idea of enjoying an herbal facial steam seemed too intriguing to pass up. So I started researching for alternatives. Soon, I stumbled on an age old beauty secret that women have been enjoying for years to create their most flawless glow.
Apparently, there's an herbal laxative called Swiss Kriss has become a cult skin care secret. Instead of consuming the tea for internal cleansing. Beauty advocates perform a "laxative facial" by placing the flakes in a bowl of hot water and allowing the steam to deep clean pores and remove toxins.
I guess it sorta makes sense because the ingredients in the Swiss Kriss are known for their cleansing qualities. Could it also work as a mini pore purifier?
According to what I've read online, it most certainly does! After checking out an interview of a woman who swears by the laxative facial on Refinary29, I was sold. She first heard of this detoxifying steaming facial from an "insanely beautiful friend, with the most flawless perfect skin." After trying the Swiss Kriss laxative facial for herself, Rachel claims that "the result is truly glowing skin."
In a separate article featuring Swiss Kriss, a couple commenters shared their experience:
Those are just a couple of testimonies, there a many more left by Amazon reviewers who have granted Swiss Kriss a perfect 5 start rating! I love the laxative facial as an alternative deep pore cleansing method for those who find clay masks to be too drying. This is a beauty secret that has been around for ages. And now you are officially in the know! Swiss Kriss is a much more affordable alternative to the designer brand that Jourdan uses. Thanks to Swiss Kriss, we can ALL elevate our Sunday Skin care experience to Super Model Status.
