What is a Hamman Spa experience?
We all need some “me-time” which helps us to reconnect with our bodies, allows us to relax and recharge for the week ahead.
A Moroccan & Turkish Hammam spa is a weekly ritual known for its ultimate steaming experience that opens the pores, rejuvenates the mind and spirit.
It’s a process of deep cleansing, relaxation, detoxification and moisturising to renew the body and soul. Hamman is a must for glowing and toned skin!
The good news is, an exotic Hammam spa experience can be easily recreated in your own bathroom using KALU Cosmetics body care products.
• Our Moroccan Black Soap is made from rich black olives, made the traditional way with no preservatives and no nasties. Rich in nutrients to moisturise and nourish the skin. This allows the skin to unclog pores and prepare for a deep cleanse.
• Kessa Glove is a must for healthy skin. It’s a traditional mitt used to exfoliate dead skin, helping stimulate lymphatic drainage, improving circulation and removing toxins from the body. Use the glove after rinsing off the black soap, rubbing back and forth lightly before applying more pressure. You will be shocked to see the dirt fall from your body!
• Our Rhassoul Clay with Argan Oil is a detoxifying clay sourced from the ancient mineral deposits deep inside the fertile Atlas Mountain. This rich clay helps absorb impurities and harmful substances. It’s a versatile multi-purpose daily cleanser that can also be used as a detoxifying face mask, skin conditioner and hair restoration treatment.
The clay carries negative ions drawing out toxins which bonds to them and washes away easily.
It’s high in magnesium and potassium which help fight acne, cleanses and improves skin elasticity.
High in silica which is great for healthy and glossy hair.
• Organic Cold Pressed Argan Oil, we source ours from South-Western Morocco. The only place in the world where the Argan tree grows naturally and is produced the traditional cold pressed extraction method way, which preserves the nutrients and purity of the oil. Therefore, not all Argan oils can be viewed equally.
Quality Argan Oil is:
For all skin types because the oleic and linoleic acids in Argan oil help balance the skin, which means it does not easily clog pores and actually helps reduce the oil/sebum production for oily acne prone skin. It also balances hydration loss for dry skin.
Ours comes in dark glass bottles to protect the rich omega fatty acids, vitamin E and linoleic acid which helps moisturise the skin.
Protects against wrinkles, stretch marks and strengthens brittle nails.
Can be added to damp hair to protect against heat when using heat appliances and on dry hair to reduce frizz.
Can be used as a scalp and hair treatment when doing your Hammam ritual once a week for healthy and glossy hair.
So pure that it’s safe for babies and pregnant women.
I like to start by setting the mood with some scented candles and relaxing music. Block all window and door openings with a towel, close the shower curtains etc. You want your bathroom to feel like a steam room or sauna.
STEP 1: Start by running hot water on your body for about 10 minutes to open the pores or soak in the bath for 10 minutes. Let the steam prepare your skin for exfoliation. Take your time to make sure your skin is soft, clean and ready for the Hamman experience.
Do not wash your hair at this point because the oils from your hair will make it harder to remove the dead skin from your body.
STEP 2: Apply a thin layer of KALU Cosmetics Black Soap with a loofah or face cloth to cover your entire body, avoiding the eyes, and leave on for 3 to 5 minutes.
STEP 3: Once your skin is ready, rinse the soap off and scrub your entire body using a damp KALU Cosmetics Kessa glove. If using a new glove soak in hot water for about 10 minutes before use. If not, rinse the glove in warm water and scrub using your palms and fingers in an up and down motion to avoid overstressing your skin. Don't over exfoliate as the glove can be abrasive. You will be surprised with all the dirt and dead skin that comes off your body. Don't wash until you have scrubbed your entire body as dead skin attracts more dead skin.
STEP 4: Once your skin is scrubbed, wash your body with warm water and you're ready to apply KALU Cosmetics Rhassoul clay mask. Our Rhassoul clay is rich in minerals and helps detoxify your skin. Mix the clay with some rose water or normal tap water and make into a smooth paste. Apply all over your skin and leave it on for 5 to 10 minutes, letting the clay absorb into the skin, then rinse with warm water. I also like to apply it to my hair as a hair mask. Just don’t let it dry on your scalp. Some people use the clay as an everyday shampoo if you want a natural shampoo and conditioner. It'll leave your hair silky smooth.
STEP 5: Lastly you want to moisturise by massaging KALU Cosmetics Organic Argan Oil all over your face and body. Our Argan oil is ethically sourced and cold pressed to retain all the vitamin E and essential fatty acids making it a great moisturizer. Remember to apply on damp skin to lock in the moisture!
This will leave your skin exfoliated, smooth and glowing. This is the ultimate pampering for brighter and radiant skin!
