Why is Dead Sea Mud so Good for Your Skin?

It’s black and it smell of minerals like sulphur, but this stuff is really great for skin care, and can really transform your skin from looking dull and flaky to glowing and healthy. The mud has natural silica in it, which has the ability to dry and harden. Once it hardens on the skin it does two major things: one, all the nutrients get deeply absorbed into the skin, and second, all the residues and impurities found deep in the layers of the skin are extracted once you rinse it off.

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.

Dead Sea mud is know for its ability to help with various ailments, but it also simply keeps your skin looking younger and healthier over long periods of time.

The mud from the Dead Sea is no ordinary mud. The rich elements of the Dead Sea mud are actually its’ secret:  The natural black mud is a mixture of many Dead Sea salts and minerals. It is very rich in magnesium, potassium, calcium, natural tar, and silicon compounds. The silicate in the mud is what gives it its’ “mask effect”, when applied on the skin. In addition, it is very useful for cleansing and softening the skin. Dead Sea mud can stimulate blood circulation and even improve it. It can also be used in different ways, thus offering additional benefits.

For example, rubbing Dead Sea mud on your skin can cause natural skin generation. If you are using mud that contains fine grains, you can easily cleanse the skin and remove any dirt particles, impurities and toxins. Dead Sea mud gently peels away dead skin cells to reveal a more youthful, healthier skin.

Dead Sea mud is a wonderful moisturizer that promotes natural skin hydration and reduces wrinkles. Moreover, people who suffer from skin diseases can really benefit from the Dead Sea mud, since it is proven to provide effective relief for skin disorders such as psoriasis, eczema, and acne. Dead Sea mud can also be used to treat ailments such as arthritis, muscle stiffness, rheumatism, and joint inflammation.

The Secret is in the Mix

Dead Sea mud has a high concentration of salts and minerals. The warm desert sun evaporates the Dead Sea water, so the salts and minerals get absorbed into the mud at the bottom of the sea. This mud is then extracted and packaged, with all the impurities removed.

How does it work? Well, first of all, by using Dead Sea mud you are basically feeding your skin essential minerals that your skin needs. Letting the mud dry and set on the skin is also very important, because when it dries, it pulls out any toxins that may be present in your skin, resulting in a wonderful glow.

In addition, it firms and tightens the skin, giving you an exceptional anti -aging benefit and leaves your skin looking younger. A skincare treatment with Dead Sea mud includes exfoliation, cleansing, and nourishing of the skin- all with just one product.

Try our Black Mud Body Wrap- This rich, nourishing mud body wrap is made from purified Dead Sea mud with vitamin E, Aloe Vera, and other natural ingredients. Nature’s dream team combines to purify, detoxify, and revitalize skin all over your body, while helping you to relax and relief muscle aches and tension. An amazing spa experience you can enjoy at the privacy of your own home.

Summer is almost here and vacation plans are at their peak. Could you imagine a vacation on the shores of the Dead Sea? Here’s all the information you need in order to get the most out of the Dead Sea’s treasures.

What is so special about Dead Sea?

Its name might be intimidating, but the Dead Sea has been a source of health and wellbeing for centuries. It is documented that Cleopatra herself used the salts from the dead sea to tone her skin, relax her body, and clear her mind thanks to the dead sea therapeutic and cosmetic benefits.

The unique setting of the Dead Sea makes it one of a kind throughout the whole world. Known to be the lowest point on earth, 1,240 feet below sea level, it has more saline than any other sea. This unique combination makes it impossible for any living aquatic life to sustain, thus the name the Dead Sea. But in This special setting, the natural minerals are unusual, including chloride, potassium chloride and sodium chloride. Those Minerals have been clinically proven to increase body circulation, and help the skin to maintain its natural moisture. Moreover, researches show that the Dead Sea minerals can heal psoriasis, eczema, acne and even reduce wrinkles and healing ailments.

The Dead Sea is actually a huge lake- Water flows in mostly from River Jordan but does not follow anywhere, and are quickly evaporates under the strong sun. However, minerals and salts brought into the sea remain. The result is a Mineral content in water that reaches up to 30% (only about 3.5% in most oceans).

Pack up your suitcase!

The Dead Sea is located in the Syrian-African Rift Valley, in between Israel and Jordan, only 19 km from Jerusalem. Year-round sunshine and dry desert air make it the perfect weather for a vacation on one of the many hotel resorts and spa. Swimming in the dead see is quit impossible, but flouting on the heavy salty water is a wonderful experience (just don’t forget to wear sun screen!).

In the southern part of the sea are hot springs of oily black mud, where you can have curative mud baths. Enjoy the remarkable view of huge salt pillars, the yellow desert, and the red mountains of Judah, offering abandon of activities, like hiking, snappling, archaeology and more.

Getting the Dead Sea closer to you

Tempting as it all sounds, not everyone can have a vacation at the Dead Sea itself. But this doesn’t mean you can’t have all the benefits of the Dead Sea minerals and nutrients right in your home. A 20 minute bath with some Dead Sea salt will draw toxins out of your body.

Jericho Skincare provides an extensive selection of luxury Dead Sea salts and Dead Sea mud products. Get your own spa treatment with this Relaxing Body Kit. Enjoy Dead Sea bath salts and Dead Sea mud wraps, for a wonderful skin year round.

Be careful: Many bath salts are now sold on the market, but not all of them are actually from the Dead Sea. When buying your bath salts, remember to check if the label specifies it is from the “Dead Sea”.

Towel[1]The perfect facial in just 4 easy steps! Learn how to get your skin ready for some summer sizzle

Summer is an amazing season, sunny and full of surprises. But for your skin, summer could be dangerous; wind, heat, dust and excessive sun exposure can easily harm your skin and affect the way it looks and feels. Thus, making you feel less vital.

During the summer, your skin suffers mainly from excessive sweat, which can lead to clogged pores and breakouts. In addition, ultraviolet (UV) rays dry out your skin and literally “cook” the natural elastines and collagen of your facial skin. Some UV rays hit the surface of the skin and can cause redness and burning. Others penetrate deeper into the skin and damage your skin from within. That can result in the production of wrinkles, uneven skin tone, dryness, and other signs of aging.

Luckily, a few simple skincare techniques can help you get the skin you want. Some women believe that facials are complicated or expensive, but we at Jericho Skincare know it doesn’t have to be this way.

For a radiant healthy skin, we recommend weekly and even bi-weekly facials. Make sure you have all your products ready to go: deep clean cleanser, exfoliation, deep nourishing mask, moisturizers and of course sun screen. Facials can be real fun; you can even invite  friends over and enjoy quality time together. Ready? Here we go!

First things first, cleanse your face with a deep clean cleanser. The Jericho Cleanser opens up pores and gently removes makeup residue and other impurities. When choosing a cleanser it is important to choose one that does not dry out your skin, but leaves it refreshed and soft.

Now you are ready for some exfoliation, to eliminate dead skin cells and deeper impurities. The Jericho Exfoliating Facial Mask allows thorough exfoliation for all skin types. Rich in Dead Sea minerals, this mask removes dead cells that are clogging the pores, and promotes the natural process of cell renewal. The peel-off mask accelerates the assimilation of nutrients by the cells, which results in increased blood circulation.

Now that your skin is so clean and pores unclogged, the next step would be to nourish it with a deep nourishing mask. Jericho Mud Mask is an exclusive product. It provides your complexion a refreshed and luminous appearance. Composed with Dead Sea Black Mud and bees wax, this all-natural product revitalizes the skin by softening the pores.

Last but not least moisturize, moisturize, moisturize! Depending on your skin type, use a moisturizer that is right for you. For older skin, the Jericho Restoring Day Cream will firm and tighten your skin, helping to boost skin elasticity. This means fewer wrinkles, deep creases, and visual signs of aging. Combine with the Jericho Lifting Serum and you have yourself the perfect facial for summer. For younger skin, try the Jericho Moisturizing Day Cream, and enjoy a luminous soft skin that will shine all summer long.

Work, work, work! It’s a lifestyle that can produce negative results if not supplemented with the right support. Whether you are a farmer out in the field, a business analyst behind a desk, or an artist in a studio, the physical and mental stresses of a long day are sure to pull you down. It is easy to fall into a vicious cycle where fatigue and pressure can get the best of you. Finding the right ways to relax and let loose after work is essential for long term sustainability.  Once you’ve given your body the nourishment it needs, you will find you will have more energy to do the work you need and want to do.

Bath Salt Coarse 700gr_S

While there are many means for relaxation, the bath is a classic choice to unwind and calm the body down.  That being said, there is a large range of bath options. Bubble baths accompanied with yellow ducks may work for some, while others might prefer the steams of a burning Turkish bath. However, the features of a bath should not be taken lightly. On top of setting a mood and giving distractions to play with in the water, the ingredients in your bath can affect your health.

Sprinkling in the Dead Sea bath salts is like adding toppings to your ice cream sundae. The addition, while not costing you any calories, will increase circulation, heal your skin, and allow your body to purify and detoxify. Like the difference in choosing fresh vegetables over frozen, the source of the bath salts you choose make a difference in its’ effectiveness to your body. Bath salts taken from the Dead Sea, such as those that can be purchased at www.jerichoskincare.com, will provide the most optimal relaxing experience.

Another solution to the tears of a long work day is to have some fun and roll around like kids in mud. While aesthetically a bit displeasing, the reaction of the skin to mud, such as Jericho Dead Sea Black Mud from the depths of the Dead Sea, can calm the entire body down while detoxifying your system. The process of applying the mask to face and body and allowing the nutrients to absorb, will provide you with the time to look in the mirror, take a good laugh at yourself, and allow the worries from the day to fall away.

Whether you choose to clean up in a bath, or lather up with some mud, searching for products at www.jerichoskincare.com will put you on the right path of how to enjoy life after work.
