Although kelp is popular as food in some regions, very few people know about its positive effect on skin. It contains vitamins A, C, D, E, polysaccharides, proteins, and minerals such as chlorine, potassium, sodium, magnesium, silicon, phosphorus, iodine, calcium, iron, and zinc. Due to its high vitamin and mineral content, it has a powerful rejuvenating effect on the skin. Kelp helps to prevent premature skin ageing, improves skin elasticity and makes the skin look healthy and glowing.

Dried kelp is also known for its ability to absorb water quickly because it contains alginates (alginic acid salts). When combined with water, alginates form a viscous gum. This makes the preparation of powder kelp masks easier and helps to keep your skin hydrated. Please note that Agor's kelp masks are not peel off because they don't contain that much alginate.

Face masks with dried and powdered kelp are suitable for all skin types, but they are especially great for oily and combination skin. Kelp helps to normalise sebum secretion and unclog pores. As a result, kelp masks relieve irritation and inflammation, help to eliminate acne and prevent future breakouts. Kelp also helps to regulate skin cell metabolism and keeps your skin clean and fresh.

Agor's powder face masks with kelp have a combined effect. They deeply nourish and moisturise the skin, stimulate its renewal, provide a lifting effect, and minimize harmful effects of free radicals.

All you have to do is add 30 ml warm (but not hot) water to 2 g mask (it's half a jar) and mix well to apply a creamy, lump-free paste. You can use regular water or non-carbonated mineral water, the mask will be effective either way. To enhance the effect, substitute water for floral water, also known as herbal distillate.

After adding the water, cover the bowl with the mask and wait for a minute. During this time, the ingredients of the mask will absorb water and restore their structure. Make sure that you've added just enough water. The mask should be neither too thick nor too liquid because in either case it will be hard to apply. You should aim for a creamy texture.

Apply the mask on your face, except for the area around the eyes. Leave it on for 15 to 25 minutes, than rinse with cool water. You can slightly massage your face before rinsing to achieve an exfoliating effect (in other words, to remove dead epidermal cells and make your skin smoother.
