When Dead Sea salts are properly processed (through simple sun evaporation) it is good for all skin types – from dry and oily to sensitive and troubled. And when used on the skin it can also be good for the body as a whole. This means that this dead sea salt scrub is good for our skin, bones, and muscles.
On top of that all, Dead Sea salt is relatively easy to find and affordable – which is how I think natural, homemade skincare can and should be!
The mineral content (which I’ll go into below) makes Dead Sea salt an obvious winner over regular Sea Salt. And the fact that it treats the body AND skin is what makes it a winner over Epsom Salt.
To summarize, the 5 main benefits of using Dead Sea salt
- Good for all skin types

If you have scars or skin infections taking a bath with dead sea salts is a great way to help heal your skin a bit more quickly. Do you have oily skin? If so, a nice facial mist or cleanser consisting of natural spring water and Dead Sea salt will not only be refreshing but will help to reduce the top layer of oil on your skin. And if you have any new acne outbreaks this will help to heal them a bit more quickly.
Dead sea salt is full of minerals that are good for our health. The top 4 are Magnesium, Calcium, Potassium and Sodium. Here’s how each one of these is important for healthy, youthful skin.
Benefits of a Dead Sea Salt Scrub
Magnesium helps to combat fluid retention and slows the aging process. This means that it’s great for mature skin, and if you find that your face seems a little bloated, dead sea salts can help.
It also helps to keep stress levels down and calm the nervous system. While not exactly skin-related I’m sure you can see how being relaxed contributes to looking great!
Calcium prevents water retention and improves circulation. Like Magnesium, this will help you if you have a slightly swollen-looking face. Getting your circulation moving helps with improving dry and problem skin.
Potassium helps to balance moisture in the skin, and this is an important point – a lot of people think that salt will dry your skin. That is true with a lot of salts, but not so much with Dead Sea Salt.
As long as you don’t have severely dry skin dead sea salt benefits will help to improve or maintain the quality of your skin.
Sodium is often thought of as a bad thing but it is actually needed to keep the lymphatic fluid in balance. If things are moving through your lymphatic you’ll likely have less cellulite and will be healthier overall.
