• 5 Ways Dead Sea Mud May Help Your Skin

    The mineral-rich, silty mud of the Dead Sea has been used topically as an ingredient in skin and hair remedies for thousands of years. In recent years, beauty experts have become strong proponents of soaps, shampoos, conditioners, lotions, and other products derived from this almost magical mud. While this wonder ingredient has many uses in a cosmetic regimen, the effects that it has on the skin are perhaps the most notable. With that said, here are five ways Dead Sea mud has been proven to improve the condition of your skin:

    Dead Sea Mud

    1. Keeping Pores Hydrated

    Dry skin can lead to a wide range of problems, and unfortunately, many skincare products are so good at removing oils that they leave your skin vulnerable to cracking, peeling, and irritation. Plus, when your body detects a lack of hydration in the skin, it responds by producing an excess amount of sebum – the skin’s natural oils – which can then lead to acne. It has been suggested that DeadSea skin care products may clean the pores without dehydrating them. Everyone’s skin type is different so it’s important that you patch test to ensure this is the right process for your pores.

    2. Reducing Itchiness and Irritation

    Since Dead Sea mud is good at keeping the skin hydrated, it prevents common problems related to dry skin, such as itchiness and rashes. People who use soaps with this mud included as an ingredient are usually less likely to suffer from issues like eczema and other breakouts that are caused by dry skin. Keeping your skin comfortable keeps you from scratching and creating scratch marks that your body has to work to heal, which cumulatively adds to the stress of your body’s anti-ageing systems and noticeably affects skin quality.

    3. Addressing Sensitivities

    Many times people have problems with their skin because they’re experiencing a subtle reaction to the skin care and hygiene products they’re using. With all of the chemicals used in beauty products, it’s easy to run into a component that your skin doesn’t agree with. Products that contain Dead Sea mud are generally very gentle on the skin and comprised mostly of natural ingredients.

    4. Balancing Oiliness

    The main problem that most skin care products have is ensuring a balance between oiliness and dryness. Insufficient sebum levels lead to obvious effects of ageing like wrinkling, while too much oil causes the pores to become clogged and promotes acne. Dead Sea mud strikes a perfect balance of stripping the excess oil while also leaving a coating that moisturizes the pores and preserves the remaining oils.

    5. Providing Essential Nutrients

    Finally, the main reason why Dead Sea mud is so prized as a topical ingredient is because it’s so rich in minerals which your skin needs to look its best. Coating your skin in these minerals helps your pores produce optimal sebum and aids in the rejuvenation and preservation of skin cells.

      This is brilliant. I used to think that the “cleaner” my skin felt the cleaner it actually was. It would just end up drying my skin and more oil would be produced. Finding the balance is crucial and the Dead Sea mud mask sounds perfect!

      I didn’t realise that using skin products that remove oils make your skin too dry instead. It’s brilliant that the Dead Sea mud cleans your skin but hydrated at the same time.
