The wonders of the Dead Sea haven't been discovered recently. In fact some 2000 odd years ago, Flavius the popular Jewish Roman historian said something to the effect of how this sea cannot be praised enough, and how travelers in the region take as much of this salt they are able to because of its miraculous healing and medicinal powers.
Drop in at any beauty salon or go shopping for beauty products and the most common thing you will find or the most talked about product you will find is Dead Sea salt products. People from all over the world are talking about the benefits and wonders of these.
More about Dead Sea Salt
Salt extracted from the Dead Sea is known the world over for its therapeutic and beautifying use. Do not mistake it for any other regular one. It has a whole variety of minerals, which are in concentration. Think about this: Regular salt has 90% sodium, whereas this has only 10% sodium and 90% minerals. Some of the minerals in it are magnesium, potassium, bromine, and calcium.
However, just because it is so good for health, don't think you can eat it. This salt is not at all edible, in fact it tastes very bitter, and this is because of the low sodium content and high mineral content. The minerals are the very same minerals that are there in our skin. After a particular age the minerals in our skin start getting depleted, this is when skin gets dry, wrinkled, and dull. This is where Dead Sea Salt comes into picture. Products made from this salt nourish the skin and provide it with the necessary minerals that have been taken away from the skin. These products give back to the skin its health and vitality. So, if you don't mind making a trip to the Dead Sea area, all you have to do is jump right in. It doesn't matter if you can't swim because the salt content is so high that it is impossible to sink.
So, walk in to the mall and ask for Dead Sea products, and out will come everything from facial creams, mud, clay packs, scrubs, body butter, and a whole variety of bath products especially the ever popular Dead Sea bath salts. While looking for them, check for 'Made in Israel' or 'Made in Jordan' on the labels, as these are the only 2 countries that have access to the Dead Sea. If the ingredients in the products claim to have parabens and sodium laurel sulfate, avoid them as these ingredients are anything but natural. Presence of ingredients such as aloe vera, green tea, ginseng, and vitamins are a good sign.
Advantages of Dead Sea Bath Salts
The best way to enjoy the benefits of this salt is by indulging in some bath products. And unless you can go take a dip in the Dead Sea, a bath with some Dead Sea Bath Salts is the best way to enjoy some of the benefits. They are easily available thanks to the imports from Israel. Further, they come in a variety of fragrances and colors, and some are even mixed with essential oils to give you a real therapeutic effect. A tub full of these bath salts is a great way to treat Psoriasis and Eczema (but be careful to opt for the scent free kind if you are suffering from either).
Skin disorders are not the only thing that these bath salts can cure, but they can also help to relieve muscles and the tension in them. Other than that they are great for rejuvenation of the body. The minerals present in them are great for pore tightening as well, as this adds to the vitality and youth of the skin. And of course, a soak in dead sea bath salts is great to alleviate pain and aches in the body.
If a trip to Israel seems impossible, worry not, just go on to the Internet, carefully search for some Dead Sea Bath products and order them online. And once it arrives, draw a bath, light some aromatic candles, and play some soothing music and experience rejuvenation at its best.
