You have heard the stories about the waters of the Dead Sea and how they have been renowned for their therapeutic effects since ancient times. Two thousand years ago, it was written that the salts from the Dead Sea would heal the human body because of the various mineral contained in the water and we are still talking about it today. Every year tourist visit the Moevenpick Resort & Spa Dead Sea in Jordon just to float in the mineral water.
Dead Sea Salt from the most southern part of the Dead Sea has mineral concentration documented as the highest in the world. The waters consist of twenty-one different minerals; twelve of which are found in no other natural body of water anywhere on earth. These salts stimulate natural circulation, relax tense muscles, and draw out impurities in the skin. Dead Sea salts have been reported to treat rheumatologic conditions and other common skin ailments such as eczema and psoriasis, allergies and – even better – skin aging. Further research has shown a 40% reduction in the depth of wrinkling when bathing with these salts!!
I was with a friend last week who has dealt with many different skin conditions on her hands, arms, and feet for years. She purchased a bucket of these salts at Whole Foods and after a week her condition is totally healed!! So of course, I got a bucket, too! ($25 for five pounds at Whole Foods)
Using the salts is so easy. I just tossed about a cup into my bath tub and allowed the salt to dissolve fully. I soaked for about 20 to 30 minutes (with the addition of candles, a glass of pinot, and a good book) then rinsed off. The reason you should rinse off entirely after using the salts is that your skin will be not only deep cleansed, but toxins will be pulled out of your skin by the salt bath. You want to be sure to rinse all that off. My skin looked great and felt so smooth!
Now I know why Cleopatra was so enamored with the Dead Sea (and all this time you thought it was Mark Antony)!! Even 2000 years ago she knew the secrets to anti-aging!
