The Dead Sea is a salt water lake bordering Israel to the West, and Jordan to the East. Maris Limus, more commonly known as Dead Sea mud, has been used for many years for various forms of treatments. Recent studies show high mineral contents like potassium, magnesium and sodium, to name a few; making this mud incredibly valuable.
But did you know, one of the best uses of Dead Sea mud is for the skin? It has various properties which make it one of the best skin treatments:
- Minimizes Skin Impurities: The texture of the Dead Sea mud is a natural exfoliant, which removes the dead skin cells from the face, and allows natural minerals to be absorbed into one’s skin more easily. This helps prevent build up onto the face and keeps it clean.
- Detoxifies and Cleanses the Skin: Dead Sea mud produces internal heat which encourages and improves the blood circulation on the face. This helps draw out and remove toxins, rejuvenating the face to give one’s skin a younger look. The enhanced circulation also helps with eradicating blackheads and whiteheads, and preventing further formation.
- Works for Oily and Acne Prone Skin: Dead Sea mud is non-comedogenic, meaning it does not clog pores. In fact, it helps draw out oil from clogged pores. The rich minerals help maintain the pH level of the skin; which neutralizes acne causing bacteria, and proving to be a great preventive for acne.
- Boosts Collagen Production: Dead Sea mud contains high concentrations of Magnesium Chloride, which is a major constituent in formation of collagen. This boost in collagen production improves the skin’s elasticity and skin texture.
Bottomline, Dead Sea mud can be a great preventative measure when you want your face and skin to look and feel their absolute best. So if a trip to Israel is not something you have planned up ahead, grab our premium Spruce Up clay mask containing all of the benefits of Dead Sea mud and much more.
