Add 2 tablespoons of Aalgo to a LUKE WARM bath, soak in the bath, when you get out just pat yourself dry, wait for about an hour and apply moisturiser.
While you are in the bath Aalgo is acting as a healer and exfoliant to get rid of that dead dry layer of skin without rubbing, when you get out of the bath and pat yourself dry there is an invisible residue left on your skin which you will absorb through your pores and it will work from the inside out to hydrate you skin.
Bath daily until you skin is perfect and then have one to two baths a week to keep it that way.
If you have very dry chapped heels mix some Aalgo into a paste with water, apply to the soles of the feet and heels, cover with kitchen cling film, put on socks and leave on overnight. In the morning put your feet in a basin of warm water and rub the paste off. After 3/5 nights all the hard dry skin will be gone.
IF YOU ARE DIABETIC only leave on for half an hour and then remove in a basin of water it will probably take about 10 days to clear all the hard skin.
For dry chapped hands and finger tips (we suggest doing this just before bed as it has your sleeping hours to work )just mix some Aalgo powder with hot water into a cream (get some plastic decorating gloves - or the gloves you get at petrol pumps for serving diesel. These are large clear plastic gloves.) fill the gloves up to just past the fingers, put your hands in the gloves leave on for about 15/20 minutes, and rinse off in a basin of luke warm water. While your hands are in the gloves the paste is acting as a healer and exfoliant for the dead dry skin, when you rinse your hands in the basin of water your hands will be clean but the water will be brown this will leave an invisible residue of Aalgo on your hands, which you will absorb through your pores during the night, and it will work from the inside out to hydrate the skin. Keep doing this daily until your hands are completely clear.
Dry Scalp/Dandruff wash your hair with our shampoo bar, it is important to wash your hair, rinse the soap off and wash a second time and rinse, use a natural conditioner if you want. Our shampoo bar has been specially formulated for dry scalp conditions.
Reasons for Dry Skin:
The most drying effect on our skin is the weather. The cold strong winds in the winter play havoc with our skin, as does the weather in very dry hot regions where there is no humidity. We get the same drying effect from central heating and air conditioning so if any one in the house suffers with dry skin it is wise to install a humidifier.
The sun dries our skin and damages it much more deeply than anything else; this may result in deep wrinkles and sagging skin. Sun protection is a must throughout the 12 months of the year not just when there is a heat wave. Use SPF at least factor 15 in the winter months, in the summer up the factor and apply every hour and a half, for children factor 50 sun lotions need to be applied every half an hour in the summer.
Hot water in a bath or shower is very drying. Use only luke warm water and use your shower at half power. After washing and bathing only pat your skin dry. Avoid harsh perfumed soaps and detergents. Antibacterial soaps are usually the most damaging and most shampoos will dry out your scalp. When shaving always shave with the hair not against it. Use shaving soap, foam or gel and make sure your razor is sharp this way it won't drag the skin.
It is advisable to eat plenty of fruit, vegetables, whole grains and lean meat, poultry and fish. Research shows that to promote younger looking skin we should have a diet rich in vitamin C and low in processed or refined carbohydrates, low in unhealthy fats and drink 8 glasses of still water daily.
Stress.....well it affects our whole body and mind so why not our skin.....try to make some "my time" and cut out one thing from your "to do list" today..... the world won't fall apart but you will be amazed how different you will feel and look after a couple of weeks.
Treatment for Dry Skin:
Aalgo powder added to a luke warm bath exfoliates away all the dead dry skin and the residue of seaweed left on the skin is absorbed through the pores and moisturises the skin from within.
You may also mix Aalgo into a paste with warm water and apply to very dry areas of the body cover with cling film leaving for about twenty minutes and then remove in a luke warm bath.
The seaweed we harvest off the North West, West and South West coasts of Ireland contains large air sacks and as a result it floats vertically in small forests normally found in sheltered rocky bays.
Containing very high concentrations B1, B2, B3, B6, E ,H, K3, vitamin C and Beta – Carotene, and many minerals.
Asco dressings have been used for many years now for internal wounds and burns.
We aim to bring health and in particular skin wellbeing through the powerful, natural, healing properties of seaweed by supplying you with an authentic certified organic seaweed powder which we have produced from hand – harvested wild seaweeds with nothing added and nothing taken from them.
Our powdered seaweed gives you a bath which nourishes the body, improves wellbeing and above all clears the skin of rashes, dryness and any itchy skin problems in particular eczema and psoriasis, whilst stimulating the lymphatic system. It detoxifies the body leaving one feeling refreshed and revitalised.
