Since ancient times, the Dead Sea has been the place to go for people with skin conditions like psoriasis. People who have been lucky enough to soak in the Dead Sea have reported smoother and more hydrated skin and less inflammation. This claimed healing power explains why Dead Sea salts are a popular and helpful treatment for psoriasis.
Some minerals found in Dead Sea salts that may promote skin health include:
Magnesium: Great for detoxifying and cleansing the skin. It can promote cellular metabolism and heal damaged and inflamed skin.
Calcium: May help promote skin growth and regeneration, retain skin’s moisture, and stimulate the production of antioxidants. Antioxidants can protect skin and slow down free radical production. Free radicals are known to damage healthy skin, while antioxidants help the skin to protect itself.
Zinc: Much like the other minerals in Dead Sea salt, Zinc can help to heal and rejuvenate skin and protect the cells involved in creating collagen, the protein that offers structure to much of the body, including bones, tendons, ligaments, and skin.
Sulfur: Known for its powerful healing powers and antifungal, antimicrobial, and antibacterial properties.
Potassium: Keeps the skin moist and reduces skin puffiness.
Bromide: Known for soothing skin, relaxing the muscles, and calming nerves.
