The renowned beauty, Cleopatra, bathed in it. Tourists today flock to it… but what are the benefits of Dead Sea mud? Here are just five of the many that researchers are talking about.
The rich mineral content of Dead Sea mud accelerates natural exfoliation and restores the skins’ pH balance. This helps alleviates the symptoms of skin conditions like psoriasis, eczema and acne.
A Dead Sea mud mask improves the skins’ elasticity and gets to work on minimising pores, wrinkles and fine lines. As the mud dries, toxins in the skin cells are drawn out and retained in the mud. When washed off, the skin feels clean and zingy.
The Dead Sea is particularly rich in magnesium, sodium, potassium and calcium. These minerals contained in the mud are effective in absorbing oil. The mud also contains nutrients that improves skin tone.
The mineral rich mud has been shown to enhance the skins ability to retain moisture. Hydrated skin looks and feels healthier.
The magnesium, calcium and potassium in Dead Sea mud promote blood circulation. Cellulite is the result of fat and body fluids becoming trapped in tissue near the surface of the skin. Massaging Dead Sea mud into these areas cleanses the toxins, flattening out the lumps and bumps caused by cellulite.
