Studies have shown that Dead Sea Minerals are effective in treating psoriasis, acne, rheumatism and eczema. Dead Sea minerals are known to cure skin disorders through strengthening the skin tissues, maintaining the chemical balance of the skin, stimulating blood circulation and eliminating toxins from the skin. Millions of people have travelled to the Dead Sea to relax and enjoy its beauty, but more importantly to experience the healing, beautifying and rejuvenating powers of its waters. Due to the high concentration of salt and mineral content in the Dead Sea, no plant or animal life can survive. There is no outlet for the water except for evaporation, so the salt and minerals left behind collect on the shores and the bottom of the Dead Sea. These mineral-rich salts and other sediments left behind are extremely beneficial to the body. Minerals are essential for the metabolism of the skin. With age, the level of minerals in the body is depleted. Researchers have found that the body no longer produces minerals on its own, and must draw from an external source of supply. Minerals provide protection and strengthen cell membranes against dehydration and environmental hazards.
