Using Dead Sea Salts Kills Psoriasis Flakes
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!
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
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
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.
