When it comes to elevating your skincare routine; the natural minerals found in the Dead Sea have you covered.
Some skincare aficionados may already be familiar with the skin-boosting benefits of Dead Sea minerals but for those of you less familiar, here’s what you need to know about these skin saviours.
The Dead Sea has been a popular destination for body and skincare treatments for centuries and looking at the benefits, we can see why. It’s known as the world’s most popular natural spa because of its replenishing benefits for the skin, body and soul. It’s said that Cleopatra herself believed that the Dead Sea had mystical healing powers and used Dead Sea mud and salt to maintain her famously timeless appearance.
Rejuvenating mud baths and invigorating salt scrubs were a popular indulgence where Dead Sea minerals worked restorative and therapeutic magic!
These powerhouse ingredients are still very popular self-care practices today. Every time you indulge in a relaxing mud mask or use a natural salt scrub to buff your skin, you can be sure that the Dead Sea was the source of inspiration!
The main reason why the Dead Sea’s properties continue to be so popular is heavily down to its mineral concentration; it can be up to an overwhelming eighty times higher than other seas’ mineral levels.
It doesn't end there; the Dead Sea is also ten times saltier than any other sea which means it’s bursting with more calcium, magnesium, potassium and bromide, talk about #vitaminsea! These miracle minerals help to fight against ageing skin, reduce fine lines and even smooth the skin’s overall texture and appearance.
Dead Sea mud and salt is richly packed with these naturally occurring minerals absorbed from the sea water and the benefits of these ingredients for skin extend beyond the cosmetic; we’ve broken down some of the skin-nourishing benefits below.
Seeking a youthful complexion? The Dead Sea is renowned as nature’s fountain of youth and Dead Sea mud is loaded with natural minerals such as Magnesium and Sulphur that boost your skin’s vitality and slow the aging process.
