Izil Natural Argan Beauty’s Guide to the Perfect Hammam at Home!

The summer season is all about flaunting healthy, supple skin because let’s face it, it’s the best look to wear all year round especially when it’s time to hit the beach! A lot of ladies hit the gym to tone their bodies to get bikini ready, but many tend to forget about preparing their skin.

The traditional Moroccan bath or the Hammam has been a huge hit in the Arabian market as a treatment fit for queens. Essentially a steam bath, this luxurious treatment involves using Olive based Soap and Rhassoul clay to reveal soft and beautiful skin. Luckily, you now don’t have to spend a fortune and go to the salon when you can achieve the same results in the comfort of your own home using organic products from Izil Natural Argan Beauty. Just make sure you allot an hour for the treatment so you can enjoy the same luxurious atmosphere as you would in the spa or salon!

Firstly, make sure your bathroom is not cold – the idea is to keep the room as warm as possible, so avoid stepping in and out of the room. Secondly make sure you’re prepared with all the items you need as follows:

Izil Hammam Range

1. “Beldi Black” Moroccan Soap by Izil (AED 69)

2. Detoxifying Body Mask Powder by Izil (AED 95)

3. Hammam Glove (Kessa) by Izil (AED 60)

4. Towels

5. Rose Water (Optional)

To start, pour warm water over yourself and start applying the “Beldi Black” Soap in circular motions. Begin with your legs, then move to the arms and finally work on your torso area. The Moroccan soap is loaded with beneficial Olive & Argan oils and Eucalyptus essential oil that work together to detoxify your skin by removing dead cells and toxins. Leave the soap on for 5 – 10 mins and then rinse thoroughly with warm water. Apply a small quantity of the soap again and rub your skin vigorously with the Kessa (Hammam Glove), working more vigorously in the areas where cellulite has gathered. Remember to use vertical strokes (not circular) with the glove to remove dead skin cells. At this stage, you should really be able to see the dead skin peeling away! Finally rinse with warm water.

Since we have scrubbed the dead skin away, now it’s time to nourish the newly revealed skin. Mix the detoxifying Izil Body Mask Powder with some rose water or regular warm water until it forms a thick paste. Apply the clay mask on your skin and let it sit for 10 minutes. The Rhassoul clay, which is a natural detoxifying agent along with the 7 essentials oil will leave your skin feeling revitalized. Rinse off with warm water and pat yourself dry with a towel.

Finish off by drinking a glass of cold water to hydrate yourself again. For added benefits, use the Green Tea Body lotion all over and you are now all set to show off your gorgeous, glowing skin. This Hammam ritual will not only leave you feeling great, but will also help you relax and de-stress. Try to do this weekly for lasting results and to keep your skin looking healthy.

Review: Re-mineralizing Body Mask by Izil!

Hey guys!

Izil is a highly effective natural cosmetic brand, made in Morocco. All of their products are made from organically certified highest quality Argan Oil, together with other natural, pure and rare ingredients. 

Izilmask 001

Izil has three collections namely : Face , Body and Hammam collections.

I was delighted to try out their Re-Mineralizing body mask, which is the second treatment in the Hammam collection, the first being the “Beldi Black” Moroccan Soap.

Izilmask 002

This mask is made from Argan oil and Rhassoul clay, a silica-rich cleansing mineral clay mined in the Atlas Mountains of Morocco. It claims to do the following:

  • absorb impurities from the skin and replace them with nourishing trace minerals
  • improves skin texture and elasticity
  • rehydrate the skin
  • softens the skin, leaving it subtly scented of Damask rose

During the day, our skin loses nutrients and elements regularly. This mask acts as a mineral supplement by replenishing the skin with those lost nutrients and trace minerals. Rhassoul clay  is renowned for it’s unmatched absorbing virtues and high ratio of Silica, Magnesium, Potassium, Calcium and other trace minerals, making it one of the best and rarest clay in the world.

Izilmask 004

It has a pasty consistency and you are supposed to apply a thin layer of it on dry or wet skin, preferably after exfoliation. Then you have to leave it on for 10 minutes, before rinsing it out.

I prefer applying it on to wet skin, since it’s easier to spread it on. Also I noticed that I use a lesser amount of the product when doing it on wet skin rather than dry. I mainly use it on my neck/shoulder area, hands and lower legs, from knee down. I feel like I will go through the tub fast if I put it on my entire body and seriously, I don’t want this product to finish!. It’s so lovely.

Izilmask 003

The mask dries by the time it’s 10 minutes. I usually use a scrub before applying this mask, to enhance it’s performance. When rinsing it out, I use circular motions so that there is an increase in blood circulation too. It’s a really relaxing ritual!

It’s scent is that of Damask roses, which I have only heard of before now. The best part is that the scent lingers on for a long time. It’s a rich, luxurious and sensual scent, that is just gorgeous ♥.

The product comes in a plastic tub, containing 150 gms. It contains no parabens, synthetic colors, added fragrance or preservatives. It costs AED 95 and is available at the online store Little Majlis or stores in Dubai Festival City and Souq Madinat Jumeirah.

The result of using this mask is absolutely soft, re-hydrated, nourished and supple skin. I highly recommend this product!
