How to apply the peat for the different uses:
- Facial and body peat mask
- Skin problems: eczemas, psoriasis, etc.
- Peat for thermal peloids, arthritis and rheumatism.
- Swelling of hands and feet
- Relaxing peat for balneology
- Peat as Hair mask
1. Facial and body mask
The application of peat helps to oxygenate the deep layers of the skin and to activate blood circulation. In addition, its application helps revitalize, nourish and moisturize the skin. Therefore, its use as a facial and body mask helps to improve the natural appearance of the skin.
Apply directly or after warming up to 40ºC, with a thick layer of the COSMETIC MOOR MUD, over all facial skin and away from eyes. Leave for 20 minutes and after that clean with lukewarm water. There’s no after need of moisturizing creams, because peat mud is already moisturizing agent.
2. Skin problems: eczemas, psoriasis, etc.
In recent years the interest for natural substances in cosmetics and dermatotherapy has increased significantly. Peat is a complex natural source of humic substances which are of potential interest in both dermatology and cosmetology. The humic substances of peat have been studied and documented in pharmacologic and biologic activities for its various possible clinical applications. Due to its astringent and anti-inflammatory effect, humic substances are useful supplements in the topical treatment of inflammatory skin diseases such as atopic dermatitis, psoriasis and mild focal hyperhidrosis.
It is important to note that peat therapy is seldom the only treatment given for a condition, but rather it is used as one element in a combination of therapies. For instance: diet, cryotherapy and peat therapy can form such a combination in the case of rheumatism. Also, the effectiveness depends on each individual, as so many factors contribute to the state of our body that it is possible for some to nullify the effect of others. That explains why some people experience rapid relief while others can have no observable effects. FOR ALL CASES, IT IS ESSENTIAL TO CONSULT ALWAYS AN EXPERT IN THE CASE OF SERIOUS HEALTH PROBLEMS.
Experience has shown, however, that there are many minor physical conditions for which peat therapy can offer considerable relief. Peat application helps to oxygenate the deep layers of the skin and activate blood circulation. Moreover, its application helps to revitalize, nourish and hydrate the skin. Because of its regenerativeº, nutritious and soothing properties, peat is a highly recommended product to relief in various skin disorders such as eczema, dermatitis, psoriasis, acne, etc.
FOR ANY SKIN CONDITION, WE ALWAYS ADVICE TO PERFORM A LITTLE TEST ON A SMALL SKIN AREA, BEFORE TREATING MORE EXTENSIVE AREAS.
- Acne:Symptoms of acne can be alleviated by peat therapy. Facial treatment has succeeded in softening the skin, removing the impurities and repairing the damage, and in some cases, the skin colour changes have been reduced. The causes of acne can be ameliorated by means of peat baths designed to remove metabolic waste products from the body.
- Haematoma:Peat therapy can be used for the rapid removal of haematomas. For this purpose, peat is heated to 40-45º and applied to the skin for about half an hour.
- Rashes, eczema:Allergic reactions in the skin frequently decrease in response to peat therapy. The peat removes the irritation and reduces the scalping effect caused by atopic dermatitis. In severe cases, it is possible to use water baths in which the proportion of the peat is increased as the course of the treatment progresses.
- Psoriasis:peat can be used to remove the thickened, peeling layer on the surface of the skin, although peeling may worsen for a while as the metabolic waste products are set on the move. After few treatments, however, the colour of the skin will even out and the irritation diminishes.
- Ulcers: Peat can accelerate re-growth of the skin by stimulating cellular activity and preventing inflammation.
- Dermatophytosis:peat can alleviate fungal infections of the feet, etc. by promoting healing of the skin. This reduces fungal growth, as the peat promotes acidity in those areas of the body where the pH of the skin is naturally closest to neutral, such as between the toes. However, fungal growth under the nails is difficult to cure by peat therapy alone and usually requires other forms of treatment.
3. Peat for Thermal Peloids and for arthritis and rheumatism.
Peat works as a great natural anti-inflammatory widely used in balneology in Central Europe for the cure of various diseases and relief of pain.
It is applied through hot water baths, local poultice or cataplasms of peat, being the heat transmission beneficial to alleviate joints problems and for relaxation of muscles.
For those who wish to try its effects for the relief of swelling, we advice:
- Apply a thick layer of peat on feet on the body area with swelling: hands, feet, wrist, knees, etc.
- Wrap with a plastic bag.
- Put 20 minutes into hot water (40-43ºC).
- This will activate blood circulation and reduce swelling.
- Afterwards keep the treated area warm for another 30 minutes.
In case of treatment with peloids, mix with therapeutic water of the spa or balneology centre and apply either on normal temperature or heating up to 39-45ºC.
Water should be added only if necessary at the time of treatment, e.g. in the case of peat bath uses. In other circumstances, the water contained in the peat itself will be sufficient in most cases.
4. For feet and hands:
To alleviate feet problems (swelling, arthrosis, etc.), apply peat on feet and wrap with a plastic bag before placing for 20 minutes into hot water (40-43ºC). This will activate blood circulation and reduce swelling.
The same procedure can be used for hands.
It shall be applied through hot water baths, local poultice or cataplasms of peat, being the heat transmission beneficial to alleviate joints problems and for relaxation of muscles.
5. Relaxing Peat baths, balneotherapy
For regular bath tubs, spread a COSMETIC MOOR MUD layer all over the body and remain for 20 minutes in hot water, 39-45 ºC, rinse the peat off and relax another 20 minutes covered with a warm blanket.
6. Hair treatment:
To alleviate the effects of seborrhoea on the scalp, wet the hair and apply directly over the scalp with a light massage. Remain with the product for 20 minutes on, then wash out with lukewarm water. It’s also possible to apply pre-heating the peat mud up to 45ºC
Apply on feet, then keep feet directly in hot water for 20 minutes, wash out with lukewarm water. This will soften patches of hard skin and reduce dry skin.
