Dead Sea Salt Body Scrub
Since ancient times, people have lauded the benefits of Dead Sea salt. Not for its use in cooking (it’s far too bitter for that), but for its fantastic health and therapeutic properties. Its use can be dated all the way back to the Ancient Egyptians, notably to Queen Cleopatra, who went to great lengths to secure exclusive reign over the Dead Sea; she attributed her great beauty and complexion to the secrets of the sea and its salts.What Makes Dead Sea Salt So Special?
Dead Sea Salt contains 10X more minerals than normal sea salt. Minerals which can assist in cleansing, detoxifying, and restoring a healthy status quo to the body, especially the skin and muscles. These minerals include:
Magnesium - Magnesium is great for detoxifying and cleansing the epidermis. It promotes the cell metabolism, and in turn helps heal damaged or inflamed skin.
Calcium - Calcium also promotes skin growth and regeneration, moisture retention through the production of sebum, and stimulates the production of antioxidants.
Sodium - Sodium helps cleanse and exfoliate the skin, neutralise free radicals which can degenerate skin cells, and relieve sore muscles.
Zinc - Zinc also helps heal and rejuvenate skin, ward off acne, and protects the skin’s lipids and fibroblasts cells that create collagen.
Potassium - Potassium is great for keeping skin moist and plump, and for reducing puffiness.
Sulphur - Sulphur helps decongest pores. It also has powerful healing, antifungal, antimicrobial, and antibacterial propoerties.
