A traditional Hammam treatment starts in the steam room where the skin is allowed time to open its pores while relaxing in the warmth. Then, BLACK SOAP is applied by massaging moist skin evenly in order to prepare it for scrubbing. After a resting period of about 15 minutes (at least 5’ at home), the soap is rinsed and the scrubbing with the Kessa glove can begin using circular motions. Black soap is suitable for all skin types, it offers the skin a deep wash and purifies it leaving it radiant, beautiful, soft and silky smooth as it nourishes, exfoliates and moisturizes it. A cooler shower often follows to re-close the pores before proceeding with the Rhassoul.
