About Ahava Mud Exfoliator and Ahava Mud Mask Products

Updated on November 12, 2011

If you live in a dry climate, patches of dry skin may be hiding your rosy complexion, especially during the harsh winter season. Dry skin may cause your foundation to cake; taking away from the illusion of evenly toned and textured skin. Using an exfoliating treatment, like the Ahava Mud Exfoliator, to buff away dry skin may reveal smoother and healthier skin.

Exfoliator Application

After splashing your face with water, squeeze a small dollop, no bigger than a dime, into your palms and rub your hands together until the exfoliator creates a lather. Apply the exfoliator to your face while massaging it in small circles for maximum buffing action, but avoid getting it near the delicate skin around your eyes or on your lips. Using excessive pressure when applying an exfoliator may damage your skin and cause discoloration, especially if you have a darker complexion, so just use your fingertips to gently massage the formula onto your face. Use soothing warm water to completely rinse the exfoliator from your face. If you have skin that shows signs of irritation easily, Ahava recommends using the exfoliator only once a week.

Exfoliator Benefits

The Ahava Mud Exfoliator contains Dead Sea mud, Dead Sea salt and vitamin E. Dead sea mud contains numerous minerals, including calcium, potassium and iron, which may help improve the texture and health of your skin. Dead Sea salt acts as an exfoliator which helps to remove dead skin cells. Vitamin E may help to minimize the appearance of existing wrinkles, according to the University of Maryland Medical Center.

Ahava Mud Mask

Ahava also makes a mud mask that contains jojoba oil, designed to extract excess oil, soften skin, remove blackheads and prevent pimples from forming. Feel free to scare your roommate into thinking that a sludge monster has invaded your home while you wait for your skin to absorb the mud mask. Ahava recommends leaving the mud mask on your face for approximately two minutes after applying it. Use warm water to completely remove the mud mask, so your skin doesn’t get irritated. Ahava recommends using this mask twice each week.


Beauty supply and department stores stock the Ahava Facial Mud Exfoliator and the Ahava Purifying Mud Mask. You can also purchase the exfoliator and mud mask through the company’s website. As of November 2011, a 3.4 ounce tube of the Ahava Facial Mud Exfoliator costs $26, and a 4.3 ounce tube of the Ahava Purifying Mud Mask costs $30.
