Morocco’s steam bath consists of several successive steam rooms, each slightly warmer than the last. To properly cleanse, the bather slowly works from the coolest to the hottest room. Once the skin has sweated, and the pores have opened, Beldii soap should be applied to the damp skin (avoid the eyes). This soap is used as a cleansing mask – it is left on the skin for three to ten minutes, then rinsed with water.  Wet the Kessa glove (a washing mitt made of coarse fabric) and gently scrub your whole body. As a result of the exfoliation, the skin feels revitalized and super smooth.
