The most beneficial products in the salt are the ones made from minerals that come from the Dead Sea. These minerals help to protect your skin from the damaging effects of the harsh elements of the air and sea. Dead Sea salt is the best of all natural products. I know, I know. You are probably thinking, well what about the synthetic skin care products that have been advertised on television?
The manufacturers who advertise their products with these two chemicals, SLS and SBA, were doing exactly what I was doing with my skin. They were stripping the very things you need to maintain healthy skin. But, the makers of Dead Sea salt went the extra mile and added natural ingredients, such as Witch Hazel and Kaolin, which work better than artificial ingredients.
Much is written about pure Dead Sea salt. The thick and silvery substance that glimmering under the midnight lights of the Dead Sea is used to preserve the food and clothes of those who live and work there. And, as I found out firsthand, it also works wonders for your skin.
When you use Dead Sea salt, you are nourishing the epidermis, the outer layer of your skin. This makes it tougher and makes it less susceptible to breakouts and irritation. It also strengthens your epidermis, making it less sensitive to a variety of irritants. When you apply Dead Sea salt to your skin, you are using one of the safest and most effective substances that anyone can use.
The chemicals used in synthetic skin care products can strip your skin of its natural moisture. Even though they are called moisturizers, they do nothing to retain the moisture. As a result, your skin dries out and becomes more dry and irritated. This leaves you with itchy and flaky skin.
The best moisturizing agents are the ones derived from Dead Sea salt. A good moisturizer will help to hydrate the skin, while helping to lock in the moisture. Chemical ingredients won't do this. It's up to you to use the best natural moisturizer you can find.
I applied Dead Sea salt to my face every night, and my skin became more sensitive. I learned that when you use the best moisturizer you can find, your skin becomes less sensitive and less flaky. I also discovered that applying Dead Sea salt to your skin at night also keeps it supple throughout the day.
Dead Sea salt is a very mild substance. Its cooling properties work wonders for those who suffer from dry skin, or those who suffer from skin that has become overly oily or flaky. I now avoid moisturizers, which I think often do more harm than good.
In addition to the natural oils, Dead Sea salt also has ingredients that are soothing. I now use a mixture of Witch Hazel and Kaolin, which is supposed to soothe irritations, including redness and inflammation. Just by using Dead Sea salt combined with Witch Hazel and Kaolin, I feel great about my skin, and my complexion!
Another advantage to using Dead Sea salt is that it has soothing properties that also benefit the eyes. If you suffer from astigmatism, this product could help to reduce the sensitivity and pain you may be experiencing. It is reported that a large percentage of people who have astigmatism find relief from using the salt. And, because Dead Sea salt is free of preservatives, there is no added artificial fragrances that can make you sick.
I now apply Dead Sea salt on my face twice a day, and I use it throughout the day on my hands and knees. I have discovered how easy it is to use this product. After I get home from work, I pour a small amount into a warm cloth, put it on my face, and wipe my face until it gets tacky.
And, after I get home from work, I apply a generous amount of Dead Sea salt to my hands and knees. I continue this ritual for at least three hours every day. and it gives me peace of mind that my hands and knees will remain fresh and moisturized.
