Sea Minerals and Your Skin

June 9th, 2015 | Skin care

The warm sun, the crisp ocean air…the kid sitting next to you, screaming and throwing sand on your towel. Some people are beach obsessed- while others not so much, especially when it comes to fighting the humidity and the crowds. Sometimes, it feels more like a chore than a luxury. Regardless of your viewpoint- the beach has a lot to offer, especially when it comes to keeping your skin feeling good.

One particular beach, The Dead Sea, is much more than your average beach. There, you can find high concentrations of beach benefits, and many high quality skin products use ingredients from this special region. We all can’t make our way to the Dead Sea, or any beach for that matter, but there are many ways to recreate similar benefits at home. So sit back, relax, and get in touch with your inner beach bum- no sunscreen required.

Salt Bath

Ocean water contains a high level of magnesium, and when we swim in the ocean our body absorbs it through our skin. Magnesium is needed for over 300 biochemical reactions in the body. It keeps the body balanced, and even regulates heartbeat. Draw a bath and add dead sea salts to recreate a mini ocean oasis.

Sea Salt Scrub

The salt and sand at the beach initiates skin exfoliation which is needed for removing old dead skin cells and generating new healthy, fresh cells. Staying well exfoliated will make your skin glow and appear more firm. To achieve these results at home, use a natural sea salt scrub 2-3 times a week. Appy with a bath sponge for more sensitive skin, or shower brush for more thick or rough skin.

Sea Mineral Body Masque

The mud and salt contents of a sea mineral body masque will draw out impurities and congestion from your skin, making it look more radiant. It’s recommended to treat yourself to a purifying body masque at least once a month. Follow up with a nourishing sea mineral moisturizer for added benefit.

Vitamin D Brunch

Sunshine is the most obvious element of a beach day. It is responsible for activating your body’s natural ability to make vitamin D. Vitamin D is essential, especially when it comes to calcium absorption. Good sources of vitamin D are found in foods like: eggs, mushrooms, and cheese. Mix these three together for an omelet and you will have a leg up on your vitamin D intake for the day.
