DEAD SEA MUD - CARE FOR THE BODY AND SOUL
Despite years of research on the unique minerals in the Dead Sea's water and mud, scientists still do not have the answer as to why this special Dead Sea mud, from the lowest place on earth, is so beneficial for the skin and body. Yet even without a definitive scientifically based answer, hundreds of clinical trials conducted in hospitals worldwide on a range of medical problems including skin diseases, arthritis, and even cancer in patients undergoing chemotherapy, have shown that the high concentration of Dead Sea minerals is almost instantly effective in improving the skin's natural processes, easing rheumatic pains, relaxing muscles and providing inner calmness and tranquility.
The black mud harvested from the banks of the Dead Sea is in fact alluvial silt washed down from the surrounding mountains and deposited on the shores of this inland salt sea. Layer upon layer of fine silt deposits have evolved over thousands of years to form a rich Dead Sea mud containing particularly high levels of magnesium, calcium, potassium, strontium, boron and iron. The resulting mineral-rich Dead Sea mud is a natural raw material that can be used by the body as a source of essential minerals for all its basic needs
Professional therapists, in luxury spas around the world, use the classic treatment of wrapping the body in warm, mineral rich mud from the Dead Sea. This results in visible toning, relieving muscle pain, moisturizing and restoring a healthy rosy glow to the skin, and improving the skin's elasticity. With increasing technological sophistication, the same professional treatment can now also be experienced in a while bathing at home use SEACRET Mineral-Rich Body Mud.
Enveloping the body in mineral-rich Dead Sea mud forms a sealing layer over the skin that increases the body temperature. The blood flow is activated and oxygen and nutrients penetrate to the end of even the tiniest blood vessels and stimulate activity in all layers of the skin. Heat helps the body eliminate toxins through perspiration and stimulates the natural cell metabolism.
The increased metabolic rate and elimination of toxins from the body also work effectively on pockets of fat (cellulite) and encourage the breakdown of stubborn fat deposits through lymph drainage. An almost instant result of the Dead Sea mud wrap is the enhancement of the outer skin (elimination of stretch marks and the 'orange-peel skin' characteristics of cellulite).
The Dead Sea minerals' ability to penetrate the deep layers of the skin is enhanced by the sealing process and helped by improved blood circulation. The Dead Sea minerals also ease the muscles into a state of relaxation and relieve pain in rheumatic joints.
When the natural evaporation of moisture is prevented by sealing the skin with a layer of Dead Sea mud, the skin's internal moisture levels increase, giving the skin a kind of 'energy boost' resulting in a radiant appearance, with a healthy rosy tone, and a soft and supple feel.
As this mineral-rich Dead Sea mud is a naturally healthy product, it can be recommended for weekly body-care regimes. Professional methods can be followed at home by heating the Dead Sea mud in the microwave until it is comfortably warm, applying it liberally to the whole body and then relaxing for half-an-hour. The Dead Sea mud is then thoroughly washed off with warm water, and the treatment is completed by massaging Seacret Body Butter, which also contains a rich blend of Dead Sea minerals, into the skin.
For daily care and added benefit to the skin, we recommend regular use of a mineral-rich block soap such as Seacret Mud Soap. To strengthen the scalp and ensure healthy hair, SEACRET Mineral-Rich Hydrating Mud Shampoo is recommended, with its blend of beneficial mineral concentrates and moisturizing ingredients, which combine to protect and fortify the hair.
The first noticeable benefit, following facial care with the Seacret Mineral Rich Clarifying Mud Mask is that the skin radiates with vitality, a healthy tone and is silky to the touch. The purifying face mask, like the body wrap, acts by creating a seal over the skin. As the blood circulation increases, and the face gradually becomes warmer, the pores function in two ways: they release natural fat (sebum) and toxins through perspiration, while at the same time absorbing the nourishing ingredients in the Dead Sea mud mask. The seal also improves the skin's ability to absorb vitamins, proteins and Dead Sea minerals through the layer of dead cells, and encourages them to help regenerate a healthy cell layer.
After treatment with a Dead Sea mineral mud mask, the functions of the skin are enhanced for a significant length of time. The minerals essential for inter-cell communication improve the capacity of the skin's layers to store moisture. The new cells fill out small facial lines from the inside, smooth the outer layer of the skin and create a sense of softness, well-being and relaxation.
Skin care using a Dead Sea mud mask is suitable for all skin types, but is especially effective for skin suffering from a functional imbalance. For example, with skin suffering from excess fatty secretions, the process balances and calms typical irritation and redness, and the mask can therefore be applied two to three times a week.
Conversely, with a weekly care routine, skin suffering from extreme dryness and scaling will benefit from a strengthened protective system, improved moisture balance, a normal cell regeneration rate and improved skin texture.
