Skin care at dead sea spa hotels – Salt lake
In dead sea spa, combination of mineral-rich water and oxygen-rich atmosphere here are a perfect cocktail for indulging your skin.
There are few sensations quite so strange as the one you’ll experience when you take a dip in the Dead Sea. The waters of this vast lake, on the border between Jordan and Israel, 400 metres below sea level, are almost ten times saltier than the sea, resulting in a buoyancy that leaves you bobbing like a cork and means that trying to swim even a few strokes is like engaging in a battle with the elements. The up-side is that the combination of mineral-rich water and oxygen-rich atmosphere here are a perfect cocktail for indulging your skin.
The Dead Sea’s healing power is more than just myth. The lake boasts high concentrations of magnesium, sodium, phosphates, bromides and other minerals thought to improve skin conditions as well as certain heart and lung conditions. Studies have suggested that Dead Sea minerals can improve the quality of life for psoriasis patients, hydrate the skin and reduce roughness and inflammation. Not only does Dead Sea mud contain these beneficial minerals, but it’s also been shown to kill acne-causing bacteria. That’s why cosmetic companies like Ahava — founded after a local spa worker noticed tourists scooping up Dead Sea mud to bring home — use it in masks, exfoliators, lotions and soaps. A popular treatment at high-end spas in Israel and beyond, body wraps made from Dead Sea mud are thought to nourish and detoxify the skin, and there are even claims that they erase stretch marks and cellulite.
