Dead Sea Salts and Their Minerals
As the name suggests, Dead Sea salts originate from the Dead Sea — one of the deepest, saltiest lakes on the planet, boasting a salinity level of 34%. Tucked away between Jordan, the West Bank, and Israel, the water from the Dead Sea has no outflow, which means that it can only escape by evaporation.
Since the dawn of time, the minerals contained in Dead Sea salts have been known for their soothing, healing, and invigorating properties, and have been regarded as among the best mineral bath salts available in nature. Legend has it that even Queen Cleopatra would frequently soak in the Dead Sea as part of her skincare regime.
Both real-life experiences and fictional tales of yore have led skincare experts around the world, and over the centuries, to continue using Dead Sea salts in the treatment of conditions such as psoriasis, rheumatoid arthritis, dry skin, and more.
At SABON, our newest Dead Sea mineral bath salts formula includes essential minerals like magnesium and calcium, promoting both skin balance and optimal cell metabolism.
Benefits of Bath Salts in Your Skincare Routine
What are some of the most impressive benefits that you can expect from treating yourself to a regular mineral bath soak with Dead Sea salts?
Boosting the Mood
Enjoying the ultimate act of self-care and relaxation is one of the most popular reasons to step into a hot bath. Dead Sea salts, in particular, are among the best bath salts for relaxing and boosting the mood, especially at the end of a busy and stressful day.
Soaking in a Dead Sea salt bath in the evening is also considered to be very helpful with creating the ideal conditions for a restful night’s sleep.
Easing Certain Skin and Hair Conditions
Another exceptional benefit of Dead Sea salts baths is the ability to treat and alleviate the symptoms of certain conditions that affect both the skin and the hair. People with dry skin — or those suffering from psoriasis, arthritis, or other conditions — will find incredible respite in soaking in a Dead Sea salt bath.
People who struggle with recurrent dandruff or itchiness should also consider regular Dead Sea salts baths, as this helps to decrease redness and inflammation while soothing the scalp.
Enhancing Skin Appearance
Dead Sea salts are also some of the best bath salts for skin appearance currently available at an accessible price. Because the minerals found in Dead Sea salts are similar to those found in human skin, these salts can cleanse the skin gently yet effectively, while also boosting blood circulation.
This, in turn, helps reduce the appearance of cellulite, stretch marks, and other skin conditions, which contributes to improving the overall look and feel of the skin.
Soothing Sore Muscles and Joints
If you are looking for muscle-relaxing bath salts, look no further than Dead Sea salts. A sprinkle of Dead Sea salts in a hot bath has long been believed to relax and soothe your muscles while tackling and reducing any inflammation in the joints at the same time.
Sounds better than an ice bath, doesn’t it?
