Benefits of Face & Mud Masks

Is there anything more decadent and relaxing than treating yourself to a well-deserved face mask? Yes, there is. And that’s treating yourself to a mud mask that can help decongest, balance, and brighten the skin. Face mud masks are wonderful ways to help soothe your skin and restore its natural glow, youth, and softness. 

But what do mud masks do, exactly? Why mud? And why are they so beneficial for the skin?

Let’s find out.

What is a Mud Mask?

Before you rush to the backyard in search of a DIY solution, let’s just clarify what a mud mask is. Contrary to what the name would suggest, a mud mask isn’t simply dirt and water. We use mud loosely, and more often than not, what we really mean is clay.

Clay has been used in skincare regimes for thousands of years, dating back to the days of Cleopatra. 

What are the Benefits of Mud Masks?

Making mud face masks a staple of your skincare regime is a great idea, particularly if you have oily or combination skin. But let’s look at some of the most impressive mud mask benefits in more detail.


Dead Sea Mud, just like Dead Sea Salt, is highly healing and restorative. This happens because of its high concentration of minerals such as magnesium and sulfur, which are known for their antibacterial benefits.

Using a Dead Sea Mud mask, therefore, will help you tackle skin concerns including irritation, redness, and inflammation, restoring your complexion to its healthy, smooth appearance.


Dead Sea Mud masks are packed with salts and minerals, which makes them incredibly soothing, nourishing, and hydrating for your skin.

Whether you are trying to tackle skin conditions such as eczema or acne, or if you just want to keep your skin well hydrated, a mud mask can enable you to nourish your skin in a natural, effective way, and minimize the symptoms and effects of your condition.


Another benefit of Dead Sea Mud masks that is worth mentioning is their capacity to act as skin tighteners. This, in turn, means that they also have a potent anti-aging effect.

Simply apply a thin layer of mud mask on your face, let it sit for a few minutes, and notice how your skin remains smooth and tight after you have rinsed it off. Your wrinkles and fine lines will appear less prominently, helping you achieve skin that truly looks glowing, healthy, and rejuvenated.

How to Use Your Face Mask

In order to achieve the best results, we recommend applying a face mask once or twice a week. 

Before applying your mask, cleanse and pat-dry your face and neck, and only use a small amount of mask – a little goes a long way.

Either apply with your fingertips or with a specially-designed brush, and let it sit for five to ten minutes before gently rinsing it off.

Dead Sea masks

At SABON, we are lovers of Dead Sea Mud and its incredible properties. To celebrate our love for one of Mother Nature’s finest and most potent ingredients, we have infused some of our face masks with Dead Sea Mud — and the results speak for themselves.

Let’s take our Dead Sea Mud Mask , for example. This is an ultra-purifying and detoxifying face mask, which helps you to achieve fantastic results in as little as ten minutes. Simply apply your detox mud mask, sit back, close your eyes, and let your mud face mask work its magic.

This formula includes ingredients that are almost entirely — 92%, to be more precise — of natural origin, such as sodium, calcium, potassium, and magnesium. Together, these ingredients absorb and eliminate excess oil and impurities in a gentle, yet effective, way, revealing a clean, soothed, and even-toned complexion.

Do you live in an urban area and are often out and about? Your skin might be suffering from being constantly exposed to pollution and other environmental factors. Try our Anti-Pollution Dead Sea Mud Mask – the perfect addition to the skincare routine of our city customers.

By combining Dead Sea Mud with North Sea seaweed extracts and other all-natural ingredients, this face mask is ideal to unclog pores and remove dirt and impurities caused by urban pollutants.

Glow, Hydrate, and Rejuvenate

Mud Masks are a must-have in any skincare routine. Their healing, soothing, and rejuvenating properties can help you achieve skin that looks and feels glorious.
