The name Dead Sea is actually a kinder, gentler translation from the Hebrew name 'Yam ha Maved', which means, 'Killer Sea'. The surface of the Dead Sea is over 1,300 feet below sea level. The very bottom of the sea, in the deepest part, is over 2,300 feet below sea level. The Dead Sea has some of the most saline water on earth; as much as 35% of the water is dissolved salts! The Dead Sea is completely landlocked and it gets saltier with increasing depth. The surface, fed by the River Jordan, is the least saline. Down to about 130 feet (40 meters), the seawater comprises about 300 grams of salt per kilogram of seawater. That's about ten times the salinity of the oceans. Below 300 feet, though, the sea has 332 grams of salt per kilogram of seawater and is saturated. Salt precipitates out and piles up on the bottom of the sea.
Dead Sea salt is an excellent product that gives wonderful results in skin exfoliation. The cells on the skin age and die in course of normal life. Accumulation of dead cells on the skin makes it look dull and parched. Moreover, dirt, germs, bacteria and other external agents attack the skin and cause a number of problems.
Dead Sea Salt is remarkably well known as highly effective in removing dead cells, dirt and germs from the skin surface by exfoliation. They help improvement in blood circulation in the skin, which enriches the skin with nutrients and makes it full of glow and radiance. Dead Sea salt also promotes secretion of beneficial oils by the skin glands that make the skin soft and removes its dry and flaky feel.
Application of Dead Sea Salt to exfoliate your skin is easy. Soak about 2 cups of coarse salt in a large mixing bowl filled with a quarter cup of water. Get inside your tub filled ankle-deep with water and start rubbing your body with the Dead Sea salt scrub, starting with the arms and applying the scrub in a circular motion. The rough and dry spots of the body should be worked up more. Relax in the tub or in the shower after the scrubbing and rinse after 10-15 minutes with a warm shower. Pat dry and apply moisturizer. This completes your one round of Dead Sea salt scrubbing for lively skin, free of dead cells, dirt and germs. There is just one caution - do not use Dead Sea salt scrubs over cut and damaged areas of the skin.
