Dead Sea Salts: benefits
By Michela Marra
Hello Pretty Birds,
This summer I had the chance to spend a couple of days in the Dead Sea area so I took advantage of this opportunity to have some relaxing mud baths. The waters of the Dead Sea offer numerous benefits: they contain 27% different salts and are rich in magnesium, potassium, calcium chloride and bromide. Magnesium fights water retention and delays aging of the skin, potassium hydrates, and sodium helps our lymphatic system. The purifying and detoxifying action of these salts is an excellent ally in the war against cellulite. Furthermore, these salts are also excellent for alleviating menstrual cramps and eliminating fatigue, as well as preventing and treating skin problems like acne and psoriasis. If you don’t have the chance to try out these beneficial salts in the Dead Sea area per se (although my advice is to book a vacation in this magnificent place as soon as possible), you can always try them at home. Add seven spoonfuls of the product (approximately 250 grams) into a bathtub filled with hot water (the water in the Dead Sea is actually really hot!), and immerse yourselves for at least 30 minutes. You can also try the mud baths which are excellent for purifying skin or the hydrating creams which use these salts as their base ingredient and fight wrinkles while leaving skin feeling smooth. Here’s the perfect product mix for you.
