The hammam ritual dates back thousands of years and is the original wellbeing treatment for both body and mind.
This bathing experience goes way beyond softer glowing skin. It can help to boost the immune system as the hot steam used during the hammam dilates the blood vessels and increases circulation in the body, opening pores to release toxins. The warming ritual can also help to promote a good nights sleep!
Traditionally the treatment is carried out in a steam room whilst lying on a hot slab having products applied then removed one by one.
The good news is you can experience the benefits of this ancient wellbeing ritual in your own home (or in this case bathroom).
The hammam collection from marocMaroc is perfect for creating an at-home spa experience. The brand only uses Moroccan ingredients, allowing each product to offer an authentic experience. Each step enables the mind to travel to this diverse and beautiful country.
Step 1: Get Steamy
Turn the shower on and allow the bathroom to fill with steam helping to open the pores and aid with cleansing and detoxification.
Step 2: Start Scrubbing
Dampen the skin then apply the Detoxifying and Exfoliating Body Balm in circular motions. Inspired by traditional black soap, this product will deeply cleanse and purify the body. Orange peel and brown sugar work together to reveal super soft and glowing skin. The balm texture transforms the exfoliation into a very nourishing massage. Leave the product on the body while you turn your attention to exfoliating the face. Using Exfoliating Wax-Cream massage the sweet and sublime face balm into the skin, argan, sugar, and almond grains will buff away dead skin cells. Leave the product on the skin for a few moments.
Step 3: Lather Up
Remove the product from the face with water before using the Infusion d'Orange Shower Milk to wash away the body exfoliator. Allow the Moroccan ingredients of Orange blossom, orange and nutmeg to fill the room and transport your mind to this far away land.
Step 4: Shampoo
Apply the Purifying Shampoo to the hair and cleanse from root to tip. The power of rhassoul clay combined with the beautiful aromas of orange and plum tree flowers will leave hair healthy, silky and pure.
Step 5: Hydrate
Step out the shower and tap the skin dry before applying the Nourishing Body Balm to key areas of tension and dry areas such as elbows, knees etc. Don't forget to take a moment to breathe in the warming aromas of eucalyptus, cedar, cumin and vanilla to calm the mind.
Step 6: Finishing Touch
Add a touch of sparkle to your at-home hammam experience with a spray of the Beautifying Body Oil onto the skin for a boost of hydration and a lasting glow.
Finally, spritz the Roses Perfumed Water overhead to cool the body and leave a light Moroccan Rose fragrance on the skin.
Following the ritual, ensure that you rehydrate the body with a cup of Peppermint tea or glass of cold water!
Nothing leaves your skin as soft, your body as toxin-free and your mind as clear as a hammam ritual.
