Every year thousands of tourists flock to the Dead Sea in Israel and Jordan to bathe in the healing waters of the sea. The Dead Sea region is highly recognized through out the world for its excellent benefits in treating a wide range of dermatological diseases, rheumatic ailments and respiratory disorders.
The main reason for this popularity with skin care conscious people is that the Dead Sea contains the highest concentration of salts and minerals out of every body of water in the world. This high natural presence of minerals essential to a healthy skin, coupled with the fact that The Dead Sea is the lowest point on the face of the earth -- creates a unique environment of natural health benefits. The region has been a source of fascination throughout the millennia, dating back to the time of Cleopatra who made this captivating oasis her own personal health spa. Although the Dead Sea is better known for the recent discovery of the Dead Sea scrolls which have a high religious value and significance, it is quickly becoming very popular for the skin care benefits that Dead Sea cosmetics provide.
There are many skin care and Dead Sea cosmetic products manufactured using these healthy minerals. These beauty products range from hand and body lotions, to salt scrubs to nail care treatments. The most popular of these home spa products, however, is Dead Sea salt, used in bathing or rubbing onto the skin in the shower. Dead Sea bath salts have been proven to be effective at treating and relieving a wide range of skin ailments – most commonly psoriasis, as well as acne, eczema and dry skin. They also effectively cleanse the skin, while toning and firming it and enriching it with the essential minerals which allow it to maintain it’s natural moisture.
Another popular cosmetic and health product from the Dead Sea are salt scrubs which are made with Dead Sea salt. These scrubs have become a popular commodity among skin care enthusiasts due to their excellent exfoliating and moisturizing properties. The scrubs are a combination of Dead Sea salt and aromatic natural oils and are available in various scents and aromas. People who suffer from psoriasis and eczema have found a relief in the famous Dead Sea mud which is applied to the affected areas of the skin and can drastically reduce the visible effects of psoriasis and eczema diseases. Due to it’s high mineral content and the fact that it’s an all natural psoriasis treatment, Dead Sea mud has become a popular way to relieve the dry, itch scaly skin that is associated with psoriasis.
Many Americans are discovering Dead Sea cosmetics during tourist trips to Israel and visits to the Dead Sea. If they have relatives in Israel, many have their family continue to send them these skin care products that they have come to love. Fortunately, there are several companies that have now taken on importing these beauty spa products and now offer them direct to their customers in the United States.
“My friend told me that he dipped his arm into Dead Sea mud while on a trip to Israel and it softened and cleared up his psoriasis for a whole week. I decided to try it for myself because I suffer from psoriasis on my elbow. I ordered some mud online and got it in a couple of days. I was surprised because it really worked! I wasn’t cured by any means, but any one who has psoriasis knows that any natural remedy that actually works is our lifesaver.” – says Don Murra of Manhattan Beach, California.
