Dead Sea Salt Scrub – The Coolest Thing Since Sliced Bread
Well, in my opinion anyway…
…maybe not JUST my opinion.
People have been going ga-ga over Dead Sea Salt Scrub since the Ancient Egyptians, including none other than Cleopatra herself.
There has to be a reason why the last Pharaoh in Egypt would travel over 250 miles each year to visit the Dead Sea.
AKA the ancient day spa.
And she wasn’t chillin in the back of a Rolls or taking a convenient ride on a cheetah to get there either. (hehe)
I am NOT talking about Sea Salt or Table Salt or whatever kind of salt you are used to seeing everyday.
So slowly put that salt down and walk slowly out of the grocery store…
But just to ease your mind, there are a bunch of differences between Dead Sea Salt and just regular ‘ol Sea Salt.
Here’s a few…
- Dead Sea Salt is really only about 12% Sodium Chloride whereas all other salt is 97%.
What does that really mean? – that it’s more than just salt! There’s over 35 other nutrients that make up the salt from the Dead Sea.
- Sea Salt dehydrates while Dead Sea Salt hydrates the skin.
Really Jess? Yes! Salt from the dead sea actually absorbs essential oils and minerals so when you dissolve them into water they are released. (This PROBABLY explains why I love taking baths so much now…) Sea salt does not.
Alright, so now that you’re rocking your Team Dead Sea jersey.
Let’s analyze the roster and the stats of our fantasy league dream team.
The salt from the Dead Sea has been claimed to aid in the treatment of different skin conditions.
Quick disclaimer – I am not claiming the cure of any medical condition, just mentioning that there have been individuals who HAVE had success with the issues listed above.
Cool, now that we got that out of the way.
That’s pretty amazing isn’t it?
Truthfully, I didn’t know any of this when I tried Dead Sea Salt Scrub for the first time.
I just tried it.
I just knew that I freakin’ fell in love with it – solely on the basis of how it made me feel.
reaalllllllll good :)
But that did peak my curiosity to learn more.
I wanted to know how something I could use at home, made me feel better than going to a spa.
Here’s what I learned.
The salt is made up (mainly) of the minerals below and what that really means.
Magnesium ➙ rebuilds skin cells; anti-aging
Bromide ➙ relieves stress
Sulfur ➙ disinfectant/detoxifier
Potassium ➙ regulates nerves and reduces water retention
Calcium ➙ cleanses pores and strengthens skin cells
Sodium ➙ nourishment and relieves muscle stiffness
Zinc ➙ cell growth and anti-aging
So what do I use?
And no, I’m not hopping in my PJ every month to Israel…
…Although that would be pretty sweet.
I enjoy Seacret’s Dead Sea Salt Scrub AND Seacret Salt and Oil Scrub from the comfort of my own home.
These two salt scrubs have all the properties and benefits that I mentioned earlier
Plus! The added bonus of three different scents…
…Pomegranate (my absolute FAV – nice and fruity)
…Milk & Honey (very soothing)
…Ocean Mist (very fresh)
The Seacret Salt Scrub and can be enjoyed a few different ways.
- Rub a small portion on the tough parts of your body (…like the bottoms of your feet or elbows) like an exfoliator.
- Dissolve the salt in some water and pour over your hair – this helps with regrowth of thinning hair.
- And finally, the way that has completely revolutionized my bath experience…. Dissolve the salt in the bath water and soak :) – This helps with muscle tension and stress relief… aka pure happiness.
The Seacret Salt and Oil Scrub has got to be one of the most luxurious feelings.
