Dead Sea mud was used by queens and pharaohs in the ancient times. The mud from the Dead Sea is thought to be very restorative that even today, thousands of tourists visit the Dead Sea every year to get relief from their ailments.
Now you can experience the healing powers of this nutrient and mineral-rich mud from the comfort of your own home.
What makes the Dead Sea mud so unique? And what exactly are its benefits? Read on.
What is Dead Sea Mud?
The healing powers of the dead sea is more than just myth. The Dead Sea is a fascinating place. It’s a tiny body of water nestled between the west bank, Israel and Jordan. Despite its size, it’s unique because it’s the lowest place on Earth, and it’s so salty that you’ll float without even trying. The landscape of the sea causes numerous minerals and substances to be deposited into the sea. It eventually washes ashore to the sea’s bank providing a rich mud that is filled with natural goodness.
Within the mud, scientists have discovered high concentrations of bromides, magnesium, sodium, phosphates, and other minerals. Studies have suggested that these minerals can detoxify and hydrate the skin, reduce inflammation and roughness, and improving various skin conditions, including psoriasis.
Intrigued? Let’s elaborate on the benefits, shall we?
Benefits of Dead Sea Mud
The mud’s gentle pulling action helps gently exfoliate the skin and draw out impurities and toxins, so it’s a perfect addition to any skincare regime. It’s also great for oily, acne-prone skin.
2. 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.
3. Improves Skin Health
Dead sea mud is high in minerals, such as sodium, chloride, magnesium, potassium, iron, and calcium, so it nourishes the skin. It also naturally softens and moisturizes, so it dramatically improves the appearance and health of your skin leaving it clearer and more toned.
4. 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. The black mineral mud found in the Dead Sea region rich in magnesium, calcium, potassium, and iron, is essential to maintaining healthy, supple skin. The natural properties of mud have been scientifically proven to restore suppleness and moisture levels in overly dry skin while relieving and soothing symptoms such as soreness, roughness, redness and cracking.
5. Moisturizes Skin & Treats Acne
Not only does Dead Sea mud contain beneficial minerals, but it's also been shown to help reduce acne-causing bacteria while limiting inflammation at the same time! A popular treatment at high-end spas in Israel and beyond, body wraps made from Dead Sea mud are thought to nourish, moisturize, and detoxify the skin.
6. Relieves Aches & Pains
Dead sea mud is therapeutic and useful for treating rheumatic conditions, such as rheumatoid arthritis and osteoarthritis. It’s also beneficial for fibromyalgia, tendonitis, bursitis, and sports injuries. It’s even useful for relaxing sore muscles. You may use the mud as a pack to treat specific sites if you don’t have time for a full body treatment.
