Dead Sea mud isn't just like any ordinary mud, its unique healing properties have been used since ancient times.
OG beauty guru Cleopatra visited the Dead Sea for its skin healing powers and even set up shop there during her reign in Egypt, creating one of the first spas in the world because she believed so strongly in the sea's healing powers and skin-boosting benefits.
Now, millions flock to the Dead Sea each year to soak in its healing waters and slather its restorative mud from head to toe.
So what makes Dead Sea mud so special? Layers of silt deposits have washed down from surrounding mountains onto the shores of the Dead Sea over thousands of years forming a rich black mud.
This mud has a unique composition of high concentrations of skin-nourishing minerals such as magnesium, calcium, potassium, bromide, zinc, and iron.
Since most of us aren’t lucky enough to visit the Dead Sea, you can enjoy the same benefits at home with Lang & Ivy's 100% Pure Dead Sea Mud Mask. Read on to discover five major benefits of using our Dead Sea Mud Mask on your skin.
1. It contains a high concentration of minerals that help you maintain healthy, youthful skin.
Not even the best antioxidant-rich serums and salicylic acid scrubs can go toe to toe with the natural ingredients contained in Dead Sea mud. The layers of sedimentary clay store a high concentration of over 21 minerals like calcium, magnesium, potassium, sulfates, and bromide that restores skin, improving its texture and tone and giving you a healthy glow.
2. It can be especially beneficial for people with dry skin diseases like psoriasis and eczema
The skin nourishing minerals in Dead Sea mud are known to help alleviate the symptoms of dry skin conditions such as psoriasis and eczema. The mud helps restore moisture and relieve symptoms, soothing dry, rough, irritated skin.
3. It Exfoliates and Detoxifies
As the mud dries on your skin, it absorbs toxins, dirt, dead skin cells, and excess oils. When you wash the mud off, these impurities are washed away, revealing fresher, healthier, more radiant skin. Not only will your skin look better, but it will also feel extremely soft and clean.
4. It Banishes Acne.
The exfoliating and detoxifying properties of dead sea mud are also great for treating acne. The mud clears out pores and absorbs excess sebum which contributes to breakouts. It has also been shown to have antibacterial properties, killing off the bacteria that causes acne. If you'd like to give it a try and see for yourself, check out our 100 % Pure Dead Sea Mud Mask .
5. It Has Anti-Aging Properties
Dead Sea mud provides anti-aging benefits by tightening and toning skin, reducing fine lines and wrinkles, and shrinking pores. It helps improve blood circulation and stimulate skin cell turnover.
