Here’s a different kind of poop facial. Swiss Kriss is an herbal laxative that’s been around forever and includes flakes of dried senna leaves, licorice root, fennel, dandelion, peppermint, and peach leaves. Today, I noticed on the box — um, that, you know, was in my friend‘s medicine cabinet — that it has directions for a facial sauna. Dump the box into a pan of simmering water and stand over it with a towel on your head. The herbalized steam “penetrates and cleanses every pore. The beads of perspiration coming from the open pores loosen accumulated make-up, rancid oils, and every bit of dirt in just minutes.” Intrigued, I tried it.
I lasted about 20 seconds before the “herbalized steam” caused a coughing fit and fear set in that the laxative going straight to my pores would cause a different type of cleansing. It’s worth a try, however, to take that constipated look off your face. [$8.12, LuckyVitamin.com]
