The benefits of Dead Sea Salts
An invigorating early morning shower is perfect when you need to get out of the door in a flash. But let’s face it – we still yearn for a good soak in the bath from time to time. In order to experience some serious bath time downtime try lighting some candles, playing some soft music and adding some relaxing Dead Sea salts to the water.
Dead Sea mineral salts come with a host of benefits
The Dead Sea is well known for its therapeutic benefits and has been since ancient times. The waters are unique in that they contain such a high concentration of salts – in fact as much as 27% of the sea is made up of various salts, compared with just 3% in normal seawater. There are many different types of mineral salts in the Dead Sea, each with its own particular benefit.
Magnesium has been found to be useful in combating fluid retention, as well as easing aches and pains. It also has the effect of reducing stress and calming the nervous system. Calcium is also helpful in reducing fluid retention and increasing the circulation, as well as for strengthening bones and nails.
Potassium promotes energy and helps to balance the moisture content of the skin. It’s also a useful aid to replenishing the body after exercising. Bromides help to ease muscle stiffness while sodium is beneficial when it comes to keeping lymphatic fluid in balance, which promotes a healthily functioning immune system.
Enjoy a hot soak in the Dead Sea
If you can’t get to the Dead Sea, then bathing in products which use Dead Sea salts is the next best thing. They replenish the minerals needed to aid skin metabolism and have also been proven to provide relief for those suffering from skin conditions such as psoriasis, reducing itching, skin scaling and aiding sleep. It’s also good to know that bath formulations which use Dead Sea salts as an active ingredient have no known side effects.
