Ok so I am somewhat of a skin care nut. I along with just about every other female on the planet, I crave glorious, flawless skin. It’s still a struggle everyday, with adult acne, menstruation breakouts and a stressful job its hard just to remember to wash my face! So when I was perusing Refinery29 and came across this article and people swearing that this Swiss Kriss Herbal Laxative is their facial savoir, I had to try it. hey it was less than 5 bucks so why the hell not.

I boiled a large pot of water, threw in 2 teaspoons of the Swiss Kriss Flakes, and threw my face over the pot with a towel overhead. I let the steam…steam my face. It felt hot. I started sweating a lot. My eyelashes starting sweating. The sweat formed droplets on my lashes and nose and dripped back into the pot. There is a very slight smell that mostly smelt like Parsley. At first its hard to breath but then it gets easier. I sweated for about 7 minutes than washed my face.

Afterward I must admit I felt refreshed. My skin was tighter and my pores (especially the large inherited ones on my cheeks) were smaller. My face felt a little brighter too. It was like all the disgusting yucky stuff trapped inside my skin had been released. Much like what its supposed to do for your bowels lol. I think I will do this once a week and see if it makes any lasting difference.

    I used Swiss Kriss regulary when I was 20, back in the 70’s . It was a nice relaxing facial that did once every few weeks and I believe it was also helped for breathing & my sinuses. I have often wondered if the product was still being made. Just ordered it on Amazon. Thanks!
