Dead Sea mud isn’t just like any ordinary mud, its unique healing properties have been used since ancient times.
The Queen of Sheba and Cleopatra both visited the Dead Sea for its skin healing powers. Now, millions flock to the Dead Sea each year to soak in its healing waters and slather its restorative mud from head to toe.
So what makes Dead Sea mud so special? Layers of silt deposits have washed down from surrounding mountains onto the shores of the Dead Sea over thousands of years forming a rich black mud.
This mud has a unique composition of high concentrations of skin-nourishing minerals such as magnesium, calcium, potassium, bromide, zinc, and iron.
Since most of us aren’t lucky enough to visit the Dead Sea, you can enjoy the same benefits at home with our Dead Sea Mud Mask. Here’s a list of some of the benefits of Dead Sea Mud:
1. Exfoliates & Detoxifies
As the mud dries on your skin, it absorbs toxins, dirt, dead skin cells, and excess oils. When you wash the mud off, these impurities are washed away, revealing fresher, healthier, more radiant skin. Not only will your skin look better, but it will also feel extremely soft and clean.
2. Nourishes Skin
At the same time the mud is stripping away impurities, it’s also infusing your skin with nourishing minerals that help keep it soft and hydrated. The unique mineral composition of over 21 different minerals restores skin, improving texture and tone and giving you a healthy glow.
3. Alleviates Dry Skin Conditions
The skin nourishing minerals in Dead Sea mud are known to help alleviate the symptoms of dry skin conditions such as psoriasis and eczema. The mud helps restore moisture and relieve symptoms, soothing dry, rough, irritated skin.
Dead Sea mud provides anti-aging benefits by tightening and toning skin, reducing fine lines and wrinkles, and shrinking pores. It helps improve blood circulation and stimulate skin cell turnover.
5. Acne Treatment
The exfoliating and detoxifying properties of dead sea mud are also great for treating acne. The mud clears out pores and absorbs excess sebum which causes acne. It has also been shown to have antibacterial properties, killing off the bacteria that causes acne. If you’d like to give it a try and see for yourself, check out our Dead Sea Mud Mask.
