The Health Benefits of Dead Sea Salt
Dead Sea Salt is an ancient beauty tradition that’s known to keep your skin looking radiant and smooth. But did you know that as well as making your skin look incredible, Dead Sea salt has a wide range of health benefits too. If you’re looking for relief from certain skin conditions, you may be able to find it in your own bathtub with Dead Sea bath salts.
At Westlab, we are dedicated to providing you with safe and natural solutions to help with your wellbeing. The following are a few examples as to how our Dead Sea products can benefit your health.
Excellent for skin conditions
Have you been struggling with itchy, red, and inflamed skin? If you have a skin condition such as eczema or psoriasis then you may benefit from the goodness in Dead Sea bath salt. Dead Sea salt contains magnesium, as well as a variety of other minerals that promote excellent skin health. Magnesium in particular however, is great for inflammatory skin conditions like eczema as it can reduce inflammation, which causes flare-ups.
Redness and itchiness are the main symptoms of eczema and psoriasis, which can be very uncomfortable to live with. Those who suffer from these conditions often describe an itch/scratch cycle, which leads to flare-ups and worsens the condition. Bathing in Dead Sea salt can reduce inflammation, which reduces the need to itch.
Can help soothe muscle and joint inflammation
Dead Sea salt is not only amazing for your skin, but studies have shown it can help relieve other health concerns too. Due to the anti-inflammatory properties and high levels of magnesium, Dead Sea salt may help ease symptoms such as stiffness and discomfort from inflammatory conditions such as rheumatoid arthritis.
If you’re currently experiencing joint pain, then we recommend that you try running a warm bath with 2-4 cups of our Dead Sea salt in it. Incorporating salt baths into your routine could help temporarily provide soothing relief from some of your symptoms.
Can help relieve skin itching from allergies or chicken pox
As well as soothing eczema and psoriasis, Dead Sea salt is also known to provide some relief from other itchy conditions too. Due to the soothing and anti-inflammatory properties of our Dead Sea salt, it can actually help to alleviate skin-itching from seasonal allergies, sunburn and chicken pox too.
Hydrating and balancing the skin
The key to healthy skin is hydration. By protecting the skin's natural barrier and retaining moisture, you’re helping to keep your skin healthy and hydrated. Dead Sea salt is rich in Potassium which is essential for skin hydration and cell turnover, as well as calcium which balances sebum levels. This is why Dead Sea Salt is a perfect solution for all skin types from dry to oily, and even sensitive skins too.
