Preserved by Peat
Posted: 2011-08-03 15:00:00We are always on the lookout for some time stopping skin care products! Peat has hit the headlines recently for its outstanding preserving qualities which can help combat ageing and enhance wellness. Yes moor peat from Irish bogs has not only been shown to have powerful anti-ageing effects on the skin but it also has excellent moisture retaining properties which enhance skins elasticity. Moor peat has anti-bacterial, antiseptic, anti-fungal, anti-inflammatory and has antioxidant benefits.
When peat is applied to the skin, it is absorbed by the epidermis cells of your skin. This causes an exchange of ions where the harmful positive ions in the skins tissues are exchanged for rejuvenating negative ions in the moor peat. These particles are then captured in the circulatory system and carried throughout the body promoting healing.
When you apply moor peat to your skin the increased flow of blood can be seen by the flushed appearance of the skin when the peat is washed off. This flush of colour shows how effective the peat is at cleansing from the inside out leaving you detoxified, purified and toned. It has been found helpful in treating acne, eczema, psoriasis, burns, scars, stretch marks and cellulite.
Peat spa therapy body wraps are deeply nourishing treatments which combine the healing and detoxing benefits of peat and relaxing benefits of hot and cold stones. These wraps boost circulation while clearing the lymph and condition the skin. The treatment helps in healing of skin problems, treats back acne, tones and tightens the skin, helps to reduce cellulite and alleviates muscular pain.
