Buy Dead Sea Salts Online -- Dead Sea Salt Products

Updated on June 6, 2011

Dead Sea Salt Benefits

When I was a child, I visited Israel with my parents. One of the stops we made was at the Dead Sea, that legendary body of water that's particularly dense with salt.

I was excited because the high salt content meant that I could float really well (you could almost literally walk on the water) and enjoy splashing around. However, my mother and the other women on our tour were more interested in the Dead Sea salt benefits. They covered themselves from head to toe in Dead Sea mud and explained to me that there were benefits of using dead sea salt, such as getting better, younger-looking skin. At the time, I just though that they were weird for covering themselves in mud!

Now that I'm older, however, I, too, have come to enjoy using dead sea salt products, such as sea salt scrubs, sea salt soaps and dead sea salt crystals. The salts are indeed comprised of minerals, such as magnesium, potassium, bromine and calcium. However, the dead sea salts also contain less sodium than other salts, so these properties make it great for the skin. They've even been known to help with skin conditions like acne, psoriasis and eczema. Pretty ironic considering that nothing can grow in this body of water since it's so salty!

While I can't say that sea salt products are a "miracle cure," they definitely improve the skin's quality and have been a part of my skin care regime for years. I especially love treating myself to a dead sea salt scrub because it leaves my dry skin feeling so much better.

I highly recommend trying a sea salt product and seeing how good it feels.

Dead Sea Salt Body Scrubs

A quality dead sea salt body scrub can exfoliate your skin, leaving it smooth and soft. It can even help clear up skin conditions such as psoriasis and eczema, if used properly and on a regular basis.

I love to use a dead sea salt scrub on my entire body, but especially around rough areas like my elbows and knees and feet. It's a great way to get rid of the patchy, dead skin that forms around there. I also tend to get very dry skin in the winter, so by using a dead sea salt scrub, I can get rid of that scaly skin and get my skin looking softer and younger again.

The great thing about salt scrubs is that they come in a variety of scents, like vanila or lavender, so you can pick one that suits you. I personally love the Adovia dead sea salt scrub with lavender because you get the benefits of the sea salt scrub, plus the calming effects of lavender (and the color is pretty, too!) Nothing feels better than relaxing in a hot shower with this product after enduring a hard day of work!

One tip, though -- do NOT use a dead sea salt scrub right after you've shaved your legs. It will sting like you won't believe -- OUCH! Instead, wait a day or two and then use the product. Use once or twice a week and you'll see that your skin quality improves.

Washing With Dead Sea Salt Soap

While using a dead sea salt scrub a couple of times a week can improve your skin's quality, so can washing with a sea salt soap ( say that 10 times fast!). Dead sea salt soap is especially good for acne-prone skin. It gets rid of the oil, but doesn't dry the skin out as many other soaps do. Plus, there are even some kinds that moisturize the skin.

I really like the sea salt soaps that also contain mud from the Dead Sea like the kind from One With Nature. It reminds me of when I was in Israel and got to put actual Dead Sea mud on my body and experience those benefits first-hand. But when it's in the soap, you get both the minerals from the mud and the benefits from the salt. Plus, the mud-based soaps usually don't have a strong scent; instead, it's very light and gentle and just makes you feel very clean when you wash.

Dead Sea Salt Crystals

After a long, tough day, what better way to relax than to take a nice, hot bath? If you want to make your bathing experience even more luxurious, add some dead sea salt bath salts. Most of these are the real deal, no frills -- you simply get a jar of genuine salt from the dead sea to add to your bath.

You don't need to add too much -- just a pinch will do -- but like the other bath products, dead sea salt crystals are known to improve skin conditions and even soothe aching joints. I can't say personally that my joints have been healed from a dead sea salt bath, but it does feel calm and relaxing and very natural. I enjoy using natural products as opposed to highly-scented bath beads because I like to feel clean afterward.

My sister-in-law is a big fan of the Ahava products and says that she likes the way they make her skin feel. She has acne-prone skin so she tries to use the cleanest products available and lists Ahava's among them.

I'm not as particular -- I just like taking a calming bath that leaves my skin feeling smooth.

Dead Sea Salt Lotions

After taking a shower or bath, it's nice to rub a soothing lotion all over your body. It not only feels good, but can help keep your skin smooth and hydrated throughout the day.

If you prefer to use all-natural products, there are several dead sea lotions available that work well with the other sea salt products. Because the Dead Sea contains so many minerals that are beneficial to the skin, these lotions are especially lovely to use.

I like to use a lotion shortly after I come out of the shower. After drying off, I'll spread a small amount (you really don't need a huge blob of the stuff) and rub it all over my arms, legs and body. It's a great way to start or end the day!

      I bought dead sea salt scrub, and the guy at the store. Told me to pour out the oil from the top out, is that true. Has anyone's ever done that?
