Your poor skin. I mean, really – what other part of your body goes through as much as your skin does? You scrub it, you scratch it, you lather, rinse, and repeat. And the next day, you do it all over again. You’re not the only one picking on your skin – weather, sun exposure, pollution, and age itself, all take their toll on this delicate part of our bodies.
Our skin is our largest organ, and one that many of us take for granted. It regulates our temperature, protects us from the elements, and of course, it holds everything together. All too often, our skin is a reflection of poor diets, bad habits, and stress, creating fine lines and dry patches on otherwise youthful faces and bodies. During the course of each day, many factors contribute to unhealthy skin. Everything from central heating and air conditioning to dry winter weather depletes our skin of moisture and nutrients.
Most of us lead busy lives and seldom have the time to think about our skin. We take quick, hot showers, wash ourselves with harsh soaps and follow up with a creamy moisturizer that promises to soothe and protect. We may actually be doing more harm than good: the hot shower actually robs our skin of moisture. Many soaps – even those that come in pretty packaging - strip away natural oils that keep our skin healthy. The moisturizer is a good idea, but not if you’re just putting the same moisture in that you just took out!
It’s the first thing we see each day, yet we seldom give it the pampering and attention it needs. For skin to be healthy, we must take the time to take care of it. So how can we make sure our skin is getting what it needs?
Bathing in sea salts, particularly Dead Sea salts, does wonders for the skin. Dead Sea salts are harvested from the southern end of the Dead Sea, where the water is filled with natural minerals. We all know that soaking in a hot bath makes us smell fresh, feel relaxed and leaves us feeling clean, but many people don’t know how baths with sea salts help restore, renew, and detoxify our skin from the inside out. A bath taken with Dead Sea salts can replenish these nutrients and restore moisture.
In addition to all this, Dead Sea salts contain minerals that have been proven to diminish the effects of aging, plumping up your skin’s outer layers just enough to minimize fine lines and creases. Dead Sea salts also increase your skin’s defense against the harsh effects of the environment while adding moisture, leaving your skin soft and supple with a healthy glow.
Try our Natural Spa Therapy line of bath salts, which are made from our exclusive Minera Dead Sea Salts – the highest quality of sea salts you will find. Minera Dead Sea Salts have not been processed, refined, or depleted of their natural minerals like many bath salts you’ll find. Don’t forget to drink plenty of water, eat lots of fruits and vegetables, and of course, pamper yourself! You’ll feel the difference immediately, and your skin will thank you for it.
