8:08 AM



The beauty industry is booming with different trends — from Korean to vegan to all-natural skin care, among others. Consumers are trying a variety of products and ingredients just to get clear, glowing skin.
One of the hottest beauty products in the market right now are mud masks, and along with bentonite clay, one popular ingredient is Dead Sea mud.

What is Dead Sea mud?
The Dead Sea is a saltwater lake between Jordan and Israel. At 1,300 feet below sea level, it is the lowest body of water on Earth. Because of its unique geographical features, the surrounding mud and silt are enriched with high levels of salt and minerals, specifically magnesium, sodium, and potassium.
The belief that Dead Sea mud is beneficial for the skin is as old as Cleopatra herself. Legends say that the queen ordered her lover Mark Antony to conquer the Dead Sea region so that she would have unlimited access to its mud, believing that it has rejuvenating and restorative properties.
Plenty of brands, like the luxurious Kedma Cosmetics Philippines, followed in Cleopatra's footsteps and offer products incorporated with the unique properties of Dead Sea mud. Countless researchers have proved the skin benefits of Dead Sea mud. How can Dead Sea mud can help you achieve that Cleopatra glow?

Reduces Acne and Other Skin Impurities

Dead Sea mud has antimicrobial properties that make it an effective acne treatment, especially because pimples are largely caused by bacteria. Experts used traditional methods to analyze its bacterial content and found that there is a surprisingly low number of colony-forming microorganisms in the mud. Its hypersalinity may be the reason for the low bacteria count since environments with an extreme salt concentration are inhospitable to most lifeforms.
Dead Sea mud masks are also excellent at removing impurities and dead skin on the body. Its mineral content helps to hydrate the skin, which improves its elasticity. Minerals from the Dead Sea also reduce redness and inflammation, improving the overall complexion.
Mud masks are the most popular Dead Sea products, but other topical items, such as lotions and facial creams, are also available.

 Treats Psoriasis, Atopic Dermatitis, and Arthritis
Because of its bromide and zinc content, Dead Sea products are also an effective treatment for skin conditions, like psoriasis and atopic dermatitis. These minerals are great anti-inflammatory agents that reduce swelling and itchiness caused by these skin conditions. These properties help soothe the skin and improve blood circulation, resulting in healthier skin cells.
The Dead Sea is a popular destination for people with psoriasis. Tourists flock the area for balneotherapy, or the process of bathing in mineral-rich water or mud to treat diseases. A dip in the Dead Sea is also beneficial for those suffering from rheumatic arthritis and osteoarthritis because of its therapeutic effects.
Although it has a high mineral content, analysis of Dead Sea mud shows that these extreme concentrations do not pose health risks for the users. But ingesting large amounts of Dead Sea water or mud (in the case of near-drowning instances) may be toxic and can cause heart rhythm abnormalities.
So before you go crazy with Dead Sea mud masks and other products, make sure you're not going overboard with your usage. Don't forget to consult your dermatologist as well, especially if you have sensitive skin. This way, you can be sure that the products you'll use will only bring you good results.
