Lately, there has been a lot of talk about mud. So many new skin care products are claiming to contain mud from the Dead Sea. In fact, mud from the Dead Sea seems to be the newest skin care craze. Generally, skin care trends fizzle and fade after a number of years, but this one trend may actually hold some very (muddy) water.
Ancient tales tell of Cleopatra’s own skin care regimen. Legend has it that Cleopatra used to bathe in the mud that could be found within the Dead Sea. Now, if Cleopatra were not beautiful, none of this would matter. However, the fact of the matter is that men came from all around the globe to gaze upon her beauty.
What does any of this have to do with skin care and mud? Well, Cleopatra knew that mud contained certain invigorating properties that would enhance her skin. Some of the properties that she sought are still relevant today. Mud (especially mud from the Dead Sea) can help with:
· Blood circulation
· Relief from certain skin problems including acne, wrinkles, and eczema
· Provides natural moisturizer
· Removes dead skin cells revealing healthy, younger, cells
While regular mud will do a lot of the things that the Dead Sea mud will do, this particular type of mud also holds a couple of its own secrets. Dead Sea mud contains a high concentration of salts and minerals. These salts and minerals are the precise things that the skin needs to live and breathe.
Therefore, all of this hype about Dead Sea mud may actually be true. Skin care routines require careful investigation and consideration, which is why this ancient anti-aging, healthy and beauty, rejuvenating recipe for skin care success is so popular today.
