The Dead Sea skin care and cosmetics products are known worldwide for their anti-aging qualities and their therapeutic qualities, and there’s no better place to witness these cosmetics products’ remarkable influence than during your visit to the lowest place in the world.
While visiting the Dead Sea, one must try to cover oneself with the unique natural black mud, one of the symbols of the Dead Sea. The black mud, sold worldwide as very effective cosmetics products, improves blood circulation and relieves tensions of mind and muscle. The black mud is rich in minerals – calcium, magnesium, potassium, sodium, zinc, iron, sulfur and sulfites – and invigorates circulation and absorbs toxins. Not to mention it’s fun, too – getting covered by mud and letting it dry is one the most fun Dead Sea experiences. Be sure to bring your camera.
There is a wide variety of therapeutic pools in the Dead Sea, each contain different concentration of minerals and salts. All pools are rich in sulfur, magnesium, calcium, sodium and potassium. These minerals penetrate and detoxify the blood stream, relax the muscles and relieve pain. These therapeutic pools can be found either in any of the area’s hotel’s Spa or in the Ein Gedi Dead Sea Spa center.
