We all know vitamins and minerals are good for us. The question is where can we find all the good vitamins and minerals, and what is the best way to get the positive effect of vitamins and minerals on our body?

First, let’s start by understanding the difference between minerals and vitamins. Vitamins are organic substances, made by plants or animals, whereas minerals are inorganic elements that come from the soil and water.

There are two kinds of vitamins: fat soluble and water soluble. The fat-soluble vitamins such as A, D, E, and K dissolve in fat and can be stored in the body. The water-soluble vitamins like C and the B-complex vitamins need to dissolve in water before the body can absorb them, so our body can’t store these vitamins, and any vitamin that isn’t being used is lost. Therefore, those vitamins require fresh supply every day.

What’s the Importance of Minerals and Vitamins?

Minerals and vitamins help our body in many ways: they boost the immune system, support normal growth and development, and help cells and organs work properly. Calcium for example is a mineral that help bone strength, and is especially important for women.

It is very important to eat a variety of foods, which can supply all the vitamins and minerals our body needs to develop and keep good health. It is also important to balance carbohydrates, proteins, fats, and calories. Try to choose whole or unprocessed foods like fresh fruits and vegetables, whole grains, low-fat dairy products, lean meats and fish. Those foods are the best choice for providing the nutrients our body needs to stay healthy.

But minerals and vitamins can be absorbed into the body not only by eating, but also by rubbing them onto our skin surface or bathing in water that are rich in minerals.

Minerals Found in Dead Sea Products

The Dead Sea is known for its rich minerals components, including Calcium, Potassium, Magnesium, Chloride and Bromide. Potassium, for instance, helps with muscle and nervous system function. It also helps the body to maintain the balance of water in the blood and body tissues. Magnesium helps muscles and nerves function, steadies the heart rhythm, and keeps bones strong. It also helps the body create energy and make proteins.

Jericho Skin Care products are packed with rich minerals from the Dead Sea soil, but also have added vitamins to offer complete beauty nourishment.  The Bath Salts and Black Mud are especially high in mineral content. Every facial cream by Jericho Skin Care offers a rich mineral balance combined with vitamins such as vitamin A and C like our Moisturizing Day Cream and Nourishing Night Cream. We also recommend to  try out Jericho Body Scrub, which is rich in vitamin C and B5.

Jericho Skincare Tip: When choosing vitamins, always choose food based vitamins instead of synthetic vitamins.

Massages have been practices in many ancient civilizations including Rome, Greece, India and China. They are known for being pleasurable, but massages are also very important to your health and beauty routine, since the effect of massages can help melt away tension and toxics.

Massages have many beneficial effects including pain relief, reducing anxiety and depression, and even temporarily reducing blood pressure and heart rate. In addition, massages may stimulate the release of endorphins- the body natural pain reliever, causing a feelings of exhilaration. Massages can also stimulate the body to produce serotonin, known to impact sleep, mood and appetite.

In order to enjoy the benefit of massages in your daily life, it is recommended to have at least two massages a month. Of course, the more massages you get, the better you will feel both in body and in mind.  So in order for you to select the right massage for your needs, here are some of the most popular massages you can choose from:

Acupressure- Acupressure is a traditional Chinese medicine technique derived from acupuncture. With acupressure physical pressure is applied to acupuncture points by the hand, elbow, or with various devices.

Ayurvedic massage- Ayurveda is a natural health care system originating in India. Ayurvedic massage is usually performed by one or two therapists using a heated blend of warm herbal oils.

Deep tissue massage- Deep tissue massage is designed to relieve severe tension in the muscle and connective tissue. This type of massage focuses on the muscles located below the surface of the top muscles. Deep tissue massage is often recommended for individuals who experience consistent pain, are involved in heavy physical activity, such as athletes, and patients who have sustained physical injury.

Reflexology massage- Reflexology is based on the principle that there are reflexes in the hands and feet that relate to every organ, gland, and system of the body.

Shiatsu- Shiatsu is a Japanese born therapy that uses pressure applied with thumbs, fingers and palms to the same energy meridians as acupressure and incorporates stretching. It also uses techniques such as rolling, brushing, vibrating and grasping.

Stone massage- A stone massage uses water-heated stones to apply pressure and heat to the body. Stones coated in oil can also be used by the therapist delivering various massaging strokes. The hot stones used are commonly river stones which over time have become extremely polished and smooth. As the stones are placed along the recipient’s back, they help to retain heat which then deeply penetrates into the muscles, releasing tension.

Swedish massage- Swedish massage uses five styles of long, flowing strokes to massage. Swedish massage has shown to be helpful in reducing pain and joint stiffness. It has also been shown to be helpful in individuals with poor circulation.

Thai massage- Thai massage originated in India and is based on ayurveda and yoga. The technique combines massage with yoga-like positions during the course of the massage; the northern style emphasizes stretching while the southern style emphasizes acupressure.

Many of the massages use oils, and most popular massage oils are coconut oil, grape seed oil, olive oil, almond oil and sesame oil.  Salts are also used in association with oils to remove dry skin. Jericho Skincare carries many products that are especially made for massages, whether you wish to give a massage or use the products on yourself, rubbing it carefully into your skin.

The Jericho Dead Sea Facial Massage Cream is a delicate modular massage cream designed for facial massage of all skin types. Made of Dead Sea minerals and natural oils, this cream blends easily with additional gel additives to increase the skin’s hydration.

Relax your body while in the shower with the soothing lavender oil and Dead Sea minerals of the Relaxing Salt Scrub, to recondition the skin and ultimately calm the body after it is massaged into the skin.

You can also stimulate your body with the Anti-Cellulite Massage Soap that deeply penetrates and help to eliminate unwanted cellulite. The Dead Sea minerals contain an assortment of ingredients ranging from coconut oil to red seaweed to palm oil and aloe that is ensured to stimulate metabolism and reduce cellulite.

Jericho skincare Tip: Massages are very good for your wellbeing, but please choose your masseurs carefully and always look for a trained professional.

Should you use body lotion or body butter? Well, it depends on your skin type, your age, the climate that surrounds you, and off course- your personal taste. If you are not sure what the differences are between lotions, crèmes and body butters, this one’s for you!

A quick look in any beauty store, including our store, reveals an abundance of skincare products.  In order to make the right choices and buy the correct products, it’s important to know the differences between them, and shop wisely for the skincare products that are right for you.

Body Lotion and Body Butter- Body butter is a cream formula that is better suited for dry skin. Body butter ingredients often include shea butter, which is a rich velvety component that moisturizes the skin much deeper then a body lotion. In comparison, body lotion is a moisturizer with a lower content of emollients, usually for normal skin. Body lotion is best in the summer time, when you are hot and sweaty, because it is light and cool. In the winter time, body butter is recommended, to help your skin restore its natural moisture and prevent cracks and dead skin cell buildup. Jericho Body Lotion comes in 3 wonderful fragrances: Vanilla, Ocean Breeze and Milk & Honey. (Buy now and save 13% off the regular price). Jericho Body Butter also has 3 wonderful and unique scents including Mango, Vanilla, and Kiwi (save 9% of retail price in our store only).

Scrubs and Exfoliants- A scrub is an all-over body treatment used to buff away dry skin. Scrubs come in various forms, scents and even different sized granules for varying degrees of dry skin. Body scrubs are usually used in the shower on thoroughly wet skin- the scrub is rubbed into the skin and then rinsed off. Jericho’s Energizing Salt Scrub with Lemon Grass, for example, can be used all over the body or just on areas with dry skin. The main difference between sugar scrubs and salt scrubs is the size of the granules. Sea salt granules are larger than sugar granules, which makes salt scrubs stronger at sloughing off dead skin cells. Jericho’s also contain mineral rich Dead Sea Salt….not just any salt! Using a body scrub is good for keeping skin healthy and soft; therefore, it is important to exfoliate skin on a regular basis, especially in dry and cold weather when the body easily loses moisture. The term exfoliation is used to refer to facial scrubs, which are much gentler then body scrubs.  Try our Peel off Mineral Mask and enjoy a deep exfoliation and a thorough cleansing.

Facial Cleansers and Toners- it is not recommended to use regular soap on your face, since it tends to dry out and harm the skin. There are several types of facial cleansers that are much more suitable for the facial skin, such as cleanser, foams and special bars like Jericho Black Mud soap, Seaweed Soap, Acne Soap, and many more. Use your choice of facial wash first, and then use toner. Toner is important to balance out the PH levels of your skin after washing, and also removing all the impurities left on your skin.

Everybody’s talking about how important anti-aging treatments are, but not everyone knows that anti aging treatments should start way before your skin actually starts aging.  So now is the time to be proactive in your anti-aging regimen.

We all want to have healthy skin, and keep it healthy and vibrant over time. We’ve gathered a few basic every day tips that can dramatically improve your chances to having long lasting and true anti-aging results. Here is a simple anti-aging routine that will help you take action right now and get the skin you want.

  1. Hydrate Your Skin- Drinking plenty of water on a daily basis is so important for your skin’s health. Moreover, drinking enough water is a very powerful tool in order to get the anti-aging results you strive for.  The recommendation is 6-10 glasses of water every day, increasing that amount during summer time and hot weather.
  2. Take a Deep Breath and Relax…- Having younger looking skin can be effected by your stress levels. Doctors often recommend to rest and reduce tension in order to affect the way your skin will age.  Try taking long relaxing baths with enriched Bath Salts by Jericho, to enjoy a calming experience and help your skin fight the stress away.
  3. Moisturize and Nourish Your Skin- when skin ages, it tends to become drier and less vibrant. Anti aging products help to maintain enough moisture in the skin, and nourish it with all the important minerals and oils it need to stay fresh. The Jericho Premium Series holds products that were developed especially for anti aging skincare, such as Night Crème, Day Crème, Eye and Neck Gel, Lifting Serum and more.
  4. Stop Smoking! -  Everybody knows smoking is bad for your health, but a less common known fact  is that smoking can really harm your skin. If you are serious about your anti-aging treatment (and your health), you should seriously consider quitting cold turkey!
    Smoking causes free radicals to build up and premature skin cell death, so in order to have successful anti-aging results put down that cigarette right now…
  5. Protect Yourself from the Sun- Too much sun exposure is accredited to 80% of premature skin aging symptoms. Therefore, it’s very important to practice safe UV radiation exposure, and prevent your skin from burning.
  6. Don’t Miss on Your Beauty Sleep- for some, “beauty sleep” is just a phrase, but actually, a good night sleep is very important for your skin’s health and for anti-aging. When we sleep, skin cell repair and regeneration takes place and slows the aging process. Our busy life can prevent us from getting enough sleep- never the less, try to aim for 7 to 9 hours of quality sleep a night, and you will see results on your skin over night.
  7. Notice What You Eat- beauty comes from the inside, we all know that. So in order to get a beautiful healthy skin and improve anti-aging treatment, it is advised to take care of your diet, make healthier food choices, eat more fresh fruits and vegetables, and consume less fat and processed foods. Make sure you eat plenty of antioxidants, which work to repair and stop damage to our skin. Antioxidants can be found in super foods such as pomegranate, beans, and berries. Also, try to minimize the amount of alcohol and caffeine you consume.
