Who among us has not had problems with our skin? Skin problems are one of the most common reasons people visit doctors, and Americans spend more on their skin than they do on almost any other part of their life.
As teens, almost 90% of us will get acne. As we get older, we may get eczema, psoriasis, and we all will get wrinkles one day, no matter how well we take care of our skin. Years of hard living, sun damage, and poor nutrition leaves most of us with skin issues that normal cosmetic treatments will not care of. That is one reason that more and more people are turning to Dead Sea Soap and other Dead Sea products to find relief.
Products from the Dead Sea are more than just a fad. They have been around for centuries and have been used, successfully, by people from all over the world.
Of all the problems that go along with getting older, perhaps the one that is the most offensive to us all is the aging of our skin. Because of years of bad nutrition, excessive sun damage, and toxic air, we are all aging at a much faster pace than generations before us. We are also living longer, and in some cases, our bodies are outliving our skin. People for centuries have been going to the Dead Sea to revitalize their lives, their skin, and their muscles, so why don’t we? Even if we can’t get to the Dead Sea, we can still use dead sea anti wrinkle cream, lotions, masks, and salts that will help us bring some of our youthful spirit back.
Dead Sea anti wrinkle cream is a thick, moisturizing cream used for many purposes. When a cream claims the name “Dead Sea”, it means that it either contains water and minerals from the Dead Sea itself, or uses plants that are grown in that environment. The water, which is incredibly high in minerals, is added to natural plant products to create a cream used to treat a multitude of ills and prevent the signs of aging.
Here’s one to try: Swisa Sensation Dead Sea Face Firming Moisturizer.
Call me crazy but I can’t stop looking for information on Dead Sea products. Then again, you know how hung up I am on this stuff and here is some info on the Dead Sea cream, not for women only.
Check out this article on the benefits of Dead Sea cream…a better after shave cream.
Most shaving creams benefit your skin with a good smelling and moisturized skin. Dead Sea Mineral After-Shave Moisturizing Cream is an excellent moisturizer due to the Dead Sea minerals that are included in its composition.
These minerals can help sanitize your skin and provide germ protection. They also help in providing appropriate skin hydration which maintains the skin’s moisture level. Dead Sea mineral skin care products in general and after shave particularly has a benefit because of its therapeutic properties, unlike those chemical-laden skin care products, which may contain dyes, alcohol, and synthetic fragrances, causing dryness and irritation. Such is the case of most shaving crèmes.
Some of these Dead Sea minerals that can provide great benefits to skin and body are potassium, magnesium, calcium, zinc, bromide, chlorine, and sulfates. Magnesium which is 15 times higher in concentration in the Dead Sea can help in skin cell metabolism and also acts as an anti-allergen. Potassium helps in maintaining water balance to assist cell metabolism. Sulfur is necessary for bile secretion from the liver and for changing toxins into non-toxins. Bromine is a natural antibiotic and can help repair the body naturally. All these elements of this Dead Sea Mineral after shave combine many other benefits besides moisturizing.
Through these minerals, this after shave can prevent infections that may ensue after shaving and helps restore the smooth skin texture. It also hastens healing and helps in deeply cleansing your skin, without unclogging the pores, and allowing your skin to breathe. The same minerals are also used to form a hydrating complex that ensures moisture level stability.

Eating food for healthy skin begins with making upgrades to the current staples in your fridge, followed by the elimination of certain foods from your diet. As I mentioned in an earlier article, this may require a bit of self control. Especially when we are referring to SUGAR! Sugar plays a huge role in the condition of your skin.
In his book, The Perricone Prescription, Nicholas Perricone, M.D., tells us of the scientific connections between sugar and inflammation, blemishes, facial puffiness, under-eye circles, wrinkles, sagging, and premature aging. He tells us that sugar causes a breakdown in collagen and causes wrinkles.
Knowing this I am sure you will be mindful of what you eat, cutting back on sweet snacks, and sugar laden desserts, but what about the drinks you consume every day? Sweet drinks (liquid sugar) are even worse than sweet food. Skin, hair, bones, weight, and overall health are hugely affected by the drinks you consume because of frequency and volume. So although more and more women have come to realize that eating food for healthy skin is a priority, what they don’t realize is if they drink soda, fruit drinks, iced-coffee, and even juice, giving them up can have dramatic effects on their skin even the next morning.
Some ways to wean yourself off of sugar in your beverages:
- Replace sugar in your coffee with Stevia, an all natural sweetener.
- Instead of drinking soda, try fruit spritzers.
- Cut back the grams of sugar in all of your beverages throughout the day including your morning juice. Do this until you have eliminated most, if not all sugar.
- Start replacing one drink a day with pure water and again gradually increase until you have eliminated sugary beverages.
- Gradually replace coffee with unsweetened tea. (green and black tea have far more benefits for your overall health)
Remember, eating food for healthy skin will not make a difference if you are drinking health robbing sugar and caffeine laden beverages throughout the day.
If you have ever spent the day at a spa, you know the wonderful feeling of being coated in mud, or scrubbed with a Dead Sea scrub. Natural treatments always feel the best, and when you come out of a treatment like that, you simply feel brand new again. There are many reasons why that is so! Spa treatments are, by nature, relaxing and the products the spas use are generally much better than you use at home. If you want to re-create a spa experience in your own home, you can learn to choose products that are genuine, natural, and as good (or better!) than what you find in a spa.
For instance, if you are choosing a Dead Sea scrub, there are certainly a few things you need to know. First of all, the ingredients in the scrub should be natural. If they claim to be from the Dead Sea, make sure they are. There are a lot of disingenuous companies who like to claim the ingredients are from the lowest place on earth, but they aren’t. Read the label!
As you all know, I am really passionate about the Dead Sea scrub. I live and breathe it! I’m always trying to cook up new ways to learn about the benefits of the Dead Sea scrub and on one of my Internet surfing trips, I found this awesome article.
I’ve pasted it below to share with you.
Make sure you come back here once you’re done and click on the link at the end of the sentence to learn more about this awesome Dead Sea scrub! (more…)
Studies show that almost 100% of all people will suffer from some form of acne at one point in their life. For many people, however, acne is more than just a few pimples. It is debilitating, scarring, and can cause permanent psychological damage. Acne changes peoples’ lives and finding quality acne products can be a lifelong quest for many sufferers. One of the best methods to treat acne problems is through the use of a Dead Sea mask.
The mud that is found at the Dead Sea is not the same mud you have in your backyard after a good rain. It is extremely high in minerals and is made with natural spring water. It is free of bacteria and toxins and is used to draw impurities away from your pores. A good Dead Sea mask is made with materials found at the Dead Sea. Make sure you look closely at the label of any item that is labeled “Dead Sea” to ensure that it is authentic.
