Using Dead Sea Salts Kills Psoriasis Flakes

Dead sea salt psoriasis treatments have been popular for aeons

10 tonnes should do it

I would love to go to the Dead Sea. It’s the place where skin diseases go to die. You jump into its salty waters, bob up and down for a bit, and emerge looking like a fresh-faced baby. Except, to actually afford to go there, I’d have to start cooking meth Breaking Bad style. So what do you do when making drugs isn’t an option? You bring the Dead Sea home! Here are three Dead Sea psoriasis treatments that you don’t have to trek to Israel or Jordan for!

Pour Dead Sea salts into your bath

They say that Cleopatra – considered one of the most seductive women ever – regularly took dips into the Dead Sea. And now, you can recreate the experience in your own tub!

When you have a bath, pour some dead sea salts in!

Bath times have never been so salty

What you need to do is buy one of those wholesale bags of Dead Sea salts. The 10kg-plus bags that you eventually forget that you bought and rediscover in the cupboard 20 years later. It’s more economical and will last longer. Then, dissolve two handfuls or up to one cup into the water. They’re great for psoriasis because of their mineral content, which includes high concentrations of magnesium, bitumen, bromide and sodium, and help to reduce inflammation and stop itching in its tracks.

However, the thing I enjoy the most, is that Dead Sea salts leave your skin feeling SMOOTH. Like butter, or like the car in Karate Kid that the poor child had to wax for ages. For some reason the plaques just slide off, and the affect lasts for hours.

Rub Dead Sea mud over your plaques

Use dead sea mud for psoriasis

What? This isn’t the right mud? *splutters*

The black mud found at the bottom of the Dead Sea is not your typical backyard mud. No way, its special magic wizard mud.

Dead Sea mud is said to improve blood circulation and enhance cell regeneration, but what is great for flakers is that, once its peeled off, it carries away with it dead skin cells, impurities and toxins, which all aggravate psoriasis.

One more thing, research has shown that it can cause a 40% reduction in the depth of wrinkling. So if your face regularly gets mistaken for a leather handbag, and you have psoriasis, then this treatment is for you.

And guys, don’t feel effeminate. My girlfriend uses mud packs and mud facials all the time that “somehow” “maybe” “possibly” end up on me. It’s for medical purposes, I swear!

Use Dead Sea scrubs & shampoos

Spa MAGIK is the dead sea salt psoriasis brand extraordinaire

Spa MAGIC is the shizzle ladies and gentle flakers

Lastly, you can find Dead Sea salts blended into a variety of products that are great for psoriasis.

The brand that I’ve had the most success with is Spa MAGIK. You can get hydrating black mud soap, Dead Sea shampoos for scalp psoriasis, as well as bottles of tingly Dead Sea shower and bath gels and exfoliating Dead Sea scrubs. They have more products than you can shake an exceptionally large flake at. What’s also good about the brand is that it is very clean in terms of natural ingredients being used.

Unlike Cleopatra, you don’t need to be carried by a bunch of slaves and tossed into the Dead Sea riverbanks to look and feel good. No, you can toss yourself into a tub covered head to toe in mud to get the same experience. Your flakes will love you for it.

I'm just an average 26 year old living with psoriasis. Over the last decade, I've tried everything, from real snake poison to rubbing banana peels over my body. I've finally found an approach that's working for me, and I'm sharing it with all the flakers out there. But Psoriasis Blob is not about one man, it's a growing community of great, red people.

    I am 28 and I have the P. I am married, but not happy with myself cuz of my body. I still have really good sex but keep my shirt on. It goes and comes. I just want to take my wife to the beach and have fun with my shirt off like I did two years ago… what do I do.

      Hi Drew. Hang in there. Who says you can’t go to the beach with psoriasis? That’s exactly what you should do! Sunlight and ocean water always does good things for psoriasis, just don’t get too baked out there. There must be a time or area of the coastline you can go to wherever you are that’s a bit more private. I used to be super self-conscious about it in public places too, but after a while you get thicker, if just as flaky, skin.

    Hey Bob and fellow flakers! This is new for me to even have found a nick name for ourselves…kinda funny! I have had seborrhea on my scalp for 15-20 years but this last 6-12 months it has spread like gangbusters and is scabby and itchy terribly :( I have colored hair and don’t want to ruin it but am desperate for a cure! I will go get the dead sea shampoo/conditioner! This is my question…do I add equal parts sea salt to the shampoo AND the conditioner? How often do I do it? I normally shampoo every 3-4 days due to great thick healthy hair so what do you recommend?

    If you have skin problems, try neem oil. It smells bad by its self. Or neem soap which is not bad.

    Omg! You have me laughing my ass off for the first time about my condition! Thank you!!

    • Karen says:

      Me too!!!! This is a great site. A great talent for writing. Thank you so much!!! I am 54 yrs old and got psoriasis when I was 17. My boyfriend was killed on his motorcycle and I blew the gene for psoriasis. Stress is a big factor for me. Have tried many things and have a lot of the items recommended but have not been consistent. I am very motivated now to be so. I will also try some new items. Psoriasis is a test of strength and will power!!! As I write this I am inhaling a bag of Panda soft licorice. Yum!!! Probably not the best thing for me. Weak moment for sure!!

    Do you have experience with tropaleum majus? Psoriasis seems to go away.

  6. Katie says:

    I am always shocked how people praise dead sea salt for healing psoriasis. I got some mixed with almond oil and the very first time Input it on my psoriasis I was made immediately aware that the saying “pouring salt in someone’s wound” was far more painful than those mere words convey!! It burned so badly that I was in tears. The jar said to leave it on for 3 minutes!! The 5 seconds it took me to frantically wash it off was hell and several hours afterward my skin felt like it had been peeled off with a grater!! I read more about it and a few weeks later, since I saw so many had success, tried again….this time, I stood in the shower, biting my lip, with tears rolling down my face and waited the entire 3 minutes! It was AWFUL! I swore I would never do that again! I honestly think it was the worst pain I’ve ever felt in my life. I’m not sure how people can tolerate it. Am I doing something wrong? Is there a point in the “cycle” of psoriasis that I’m supposed to use it…like when it’s at the flakiest phase or something? I really wanted this to work….sigh. I’ve tried so many things that haven’t and I was counting on this one since it seemed so natural. If anyone has advice…please share. Thank you.

      Hi Katie. Sorry to hear that. Have you tried different brands, or just buying the salt crystals separately and dissolving them into a bath? The creams I used were quite mild so I didn’t have much stinging at all. However I would recommend that you try the bath salts, and experiment with the amounts until its comfortable. I used 1 to 2 full cups and, after soaking for half an hour, had the smoothest skin ever. It’s really great. Hope you find a way of making it work for you.
