Here are the Dead Sea mud benefits
Treats skin ailments
Dead Sea mud helps in treating skin ailments such as acne, pimples, and eczema. This mud is enriched with high mineral content and hence works as a magnificent natural exfoliating agent. Apart from exfoliation, the mud is also used to maintain the pH balance of the skin.
Even though the Dead Sea mud cannot permanently cure some serious skin problems such as psoriasis; it is however capable of reducing the ailment to much extent.
Improves the texture
Dead Sea mud hugely contributes in improving the texture of the skin by enhancing the elasticity. The mud also helps in minimizing the open pores, fine lines and skin aging signs.
The mud also helps in removing the toxins that are deposited from the daily diet.
Prevents hair loss
Apart from treating skin ailments, the Dead Sea mud is also helpful in preventing hair loss. There are many causes that lead to hair loss that include scalp infections, stress, unhealthy diet and heredity to name a few. When blood vessels shrink, food and oxygen supply to the follicles are cut off. This further prevents the hair protein from forming. This leads to hair fall, thereby reducing hair growth.
For this, all you need to do is apply the mud into your scalp just as you apply henna and let it sit for 10 minutes. Now rinse thoroughly with tap water.
