The Modern Uses Of Dead Sea Salt

Dead Sea Salt

Dead Sea Salt has recently become the skin care product of choice for so many, and is seemingly on trend. We at Life Retreat wanted to highlight this trend. In this article, learn about the history of the Dead Sea and where it is heading in relation to our bodies and skin care…

Magnesium is important for both combating stress and fluid retention, slowing skin aging and calming the nervous system. Calcium is effective at preventing water retention, increasing circulation and strengthening bones and nails. Potassium energizes the body, helps to balance skin moisture and is a crucial mineral to replenish following intense exercise. Bromides act to ease muscle stiffness and relax muscles. Sodium is important for the lymphatic fluid balance (this in turn is important for immune system function).

The Benefits of Dead Sea Salt for Skin

Although the sea itself may be unwelcoming, its salts have been harvested and used for thousands of years. Over 2000 years ago, the Roman Historian Flavius wrote that Dead Sea salt “heals the human body and is therefore used in many medicines.” Often referred to as a “salt glow,” a salt scrub stimulates the skin, muscles and nerves, cleanses the pores and improves the texture of dull, bumpy and tired skin. Extensive scientific research has been performed to prove the efficacy of Dead Sea salt for treating skin problems such as dry skin and psoriasis.

Psoriasis

Another study, published in a 2008 edition of the International Journal of Dermatology, examined 50 patients between the ages of 14 and 77, all of whom suffered from psoriasis. The patients were given 3 to 4 baths made with Dead Sea Salts per week for four weeks. After this period, 70 percent of the patients were completely cleared. Gender, skin type, psychological state nor family history affected the rate of success. Numerous other studies confirm these results. Even the National Psoriasis Foundation recommends the use of Dead Sea salt for the treatment of psoriasis.

Other Benefits

In addition to treating dry skin and psoriasis, natural health practitioners recommend the use of Dead Sea salt for a variety of other skin ailments. Although scientific research is lacking, there exists strong anecdotal evidence that suggests the salt is effective in treating acne, wrinkles and even sun damage. A dead sea salt scrub will benefit just about every skin type and skin disorder, even if it’s just indirectly. By cleansing the pores, reducing inflammation and increasing circulation, it’s almost impossible not to experience improved skin with regular use.
