Jordanian Dead Sea Mineral Rich Mask
Millions of years in the making.
The Dead Sea, a large salt lake located on the border between Jordan to the east and Israel to the west and is subjected to continuous evaporation due to the very high temperatures in the area. The water and mud are very rich in mineral salts and trace elements.
The Dead Sea contains 21 essential minerals, the combination of 12 of the Dead Sea minerals do not exist in any other sea or ocean in the world. Some are known to have unique qualities, for instance giving a feeling of relaxation, nourishing the skin, activating the blood systems, healing rheumatic diseases and metabolic disorders. In addition, the natural minerals are essential for the correct functioning of the human body and the different skin layers.
The minerals constitute only 4% of the body weight, but their importance is immeasurably greater, they are trace elements required in small quantities for cell renewal activities in the skin and serve as essential elements in cell functioning, principally in intercellular communication.
The minerals are essential for purposes of "exchanging information" and help to transmit signals between the cells, an activity that stimulates cells to renew themselves, to divide and to nourish the top skin layer with an increased water capacity.
However, like vitamins, they are not produced by the body and therefore the body depends on an external supply of minerals from food. Minerals play a very important role in correct skin functioning. Therefore, beyond provision of the minerals reaching it with the blood circulation, the skin absorbs minerals applied externally and uses them in every single process existing in the skin layers. A deficiency in one of the minerals is liable to disrupt skin cell activity, cause inflammation, dryness and early aging.
This mask draws out toxins, bacteria and excess oil from the skin, reduces acne, removes dead skin cells, wonderful for mature skin as it helps with elasticity, makes skin healthier, improves the skin's function and barrier. This mask also restores the skin's pH balance.
