DIY Barbershop Hot Towel

Recreate the Barbershop's Hot Towel Experience with Zeus Steam Mist and Steam Towel

Part of the reason visiting your barber for a shave is so nice is because of the satisfying hot towel experience that comes with it. However, sometimes you just don’t have the extra time or money needed to hit your local shop. The good news? You can recreate the same experience at home using the Zeus Steam Mist and Towel Set.

The hot towel will soften your facial hair. Eucalyptus oil contains a minty honey-like smell that is both soothing and invigorating. Not only is it good to wake up your senses to help you get the day started, it also puts your mind at ease from stress. Eucalyptus oil is especially good when used on hair because it works well to inspire hair growth. It is one of the essential oils that is commonly used in barbershops for the hot towel treatment. If you’re looking to combine oils, it works well with sesame oil, which fights off itch and irritation and grape seed oil, which makes facial hair shinier and softer.

What You'll Need:


Step 1: Apply 1-2 sprays of Zeus Steam Mist onto your dry Zeus Steam Towel.

Step 2: Wet the towel and heat it up. If you do not have a towel warmer.

Option 1: Dampen the towel then microwave for 30 seconds to 1 minute (depending on your microwave settings). The towel should be hot, but not so hot that you cannot hold it.
Option 2: Run your towel through hot water from your faucet. Wring it out so it's not dripping with water.

Step 3: Hold one end of the towel in each hand and wrap the sides of the towel around your face. Cover your cheeks, chin and forehead. Your nose should be the only part of your face that is exposed. Relax and enjoy the soothing scent of Zeus Steam Mist. Once your towel loses its heat, remove and begin your shaving routine.
