Dead Sea Salt Bath and Body
I’ve often heard that the salt from the Dead Sea is rich in nutrients. High in magnesium, potassium and chloride salts, it is purported to offer healing effects to our bodies. It is even used in some cosmetics and skin care products. But one big lick really changed plans. The salt seemingly burned my tongue, just like the Dead Sea’s water does when you are floating.
So when learned about someone selling Dead Sea salt for a gourmet specialty, the temptation was too great to pass up. A trip to the mall was not in the cards. So after much searching on the internet, I decided to try it for myself. I loaded up on moisturizers, lotions, cosmetics, and body lotion and to my surprise, nothing worked. Not a single product made a difference in the way that I looked or felt.
I knew right then what I was missing; minerals. As a result, I started researching about the many benefits of the dead sea salt and what can be done to help my skin with its problems of mineral deficiencies. What I found is that there are many different minerals that can help with issues like dryness, aging, blemishes, rashes and inflammation. For example, sodium and potassium are two minerals commonly found in the Dead Sea. With the use of dead sea salt, one can absorb these two essential minerals to increase the moisture content of the skin.
I started my quest to find Dead Sea salt for use in my bath products by researching my local stores and their online counterparts. What I discovered is that not only were there many different brands of bath and beauty products containing salt from the dead sea, but that each brand contained slightly different amounts of sodium and potassium. What I realized is that the more potassium and sodium that a product contains, the more water your skin will be able to absorb. This means that you are going to be able to take advantage of the many benefits that dead sea salt has to offer your beauty regime. So my mission was met when I decided to load up on bath and body products that contained high levels of these two minerals.
For example, one of the most popular bath and body products in the world is called My Shea Butter. When I went to purchase this beauty product I noticed that it had a nice amount of sodium as well as potassium. I was really amazed because sodium and potassium are two of the most important minerals to have in one’s daily diet. Also, when I read the list of ingredients I noticed that it contained no parabens, alcohol, fragrances, dioxane or artificial preservatives. These are all known to be harmful to people’s skin, and for good reason.
It is important to note that this great bath and body product does not contain any synthetic chemicals or additives. All of the mineral composition comes straight from the dead sea salt itself. The great thing about using dead sea salt is that you can use less of it if you are trying to shed a few pounds, because the mineral content in the salt is lower. Also, because the mineral makeup is so pure, it will leave your skin feeling rejuvenated and moisturized. There are several other benefits to using dead sea salt, such as increased energy and clearer skin.
