Ancient people would soak their skin in the waters of the Dead Sea to obtain relief from their ailments and to restore their good health. Today, tourists flood the area to receive the restorative benefits of the Dead Sea.

To achieve the skin healing benefit of the Dead Sea at home, individuals can use some of the many skin care products that include Dead Sea mud.

The Dead Sea is unique due to its high concentrations of salts and minerals. It is particularly rich in magnesium, sodium, potassium and calcium. Use of Dead Sea mud has been studied in connection with health benefits and healing properties for physical ailments. Do not use Dead Sea mud as a replacement for medical treatments that have been prescribed by your doctor.


Provides Relief for Disorders

Symptoms of skin disorders such as psoriasis, eczema and acne can be controlled by using Dead Sea mud. Its rich mineral content accelerates natural exfoliation and restores your skin’s pH balance. Dead Sea mud is not a permanent healer, but regular use of it can provide physical relief and keep your skin disorder under control.


Improves the Look of Facial Skin

Good facial skin is important; it can define who we are, promote self-confidence, and slow down the ageing process. Bad facial skin can have completely the opposite effect, making us feel miserable while accelerating the ageing process!

Dead sea mud can help with facial skin that is, shall we say, under the weather. It can boost elasticity while eliminating pesky lines, wrinkles and pores that mark the overall complexion and look of your skin. And when dead sea mud dries out, it draws out toxins making your face feel lovely and refreshed.


Prevents Hair Loss

Dead Sea mud masks can be helpful to prevent hair loss. Heredity, stress and scalp infections can cause hair loss. When blood vessels in the hair follicle shrink, food and oxygen are cut off. This prevents hair protein that is essential for hair growth from forming. Hair growth is stunted, and hair falls out prematurely. To use the mud for this benefit, massage it into your scalp and let it sit for 10 minutes. Rinse and shampoo as usual.


Treats Skin Conditions

Studies by the Dead Sea Research Center (DSRC), a non-profit organization, have shown Dead Sea mud is useful for treating skin conditions, such as psoriasis, atopic dermatitis, and vitiligo, especially when used in conjunction with adjunct therapies, such as Dead Sea bathing, moisturizing creams, and sun exposure.


Reduces the Appearance of Cellulite

Dead Sea mud has a high concentration of minerals such as magnesium, calcium and potassium. These minerals promote blood circulation, relaxing your nerves. Cellulite is the fat that causes a cottage-cheese like appearance on your body. Fat and body fluids become trapped in skin tissues near the surface of your skin. Massaging Dead Sea mud on the areas with cellulite stimulates the blood circulation and cleanses toxins out through your pores. This helps flatten out the cottage-cheese bumps that are caused by cellulite


Increases Circulation

Ever noticed how after doing a facial your skin is red? That’s because facials stimulate blood flow and body masks or wraps do the same thing. Circulation helps bring vital nutrients and oxygen to your cells and carry away toxins and wastes — all essential to healthy and normal cell functioning.


Reduces Arthritic Knee Pain

Researchers from Ben Gurion University found that patients treated with mud compresses taken from the mineral-rich Dead Sea reported less knee pain from osteoarthritis. Far fewer patients treated with mud without minerals reported improvement. The high concentration of minerals in Dead Sea mud will help to ease knee aches and pains by stimulating the circulatory system and relaxing the nerves.
