In my quest to regain beautiful skin, I discovered that Dead Sea Salt and Epsom baths can improve the following conditions:
- Dry Skin
- Muscular Aches and Pain
- Skin Allergies
The skin is strengthened and blood circulation improves. Toxins are also removed from the skin. Any chemical imbalances of the skin and body are improved and the skin’s natural PH levels are restored.
Studies show that Dead Sea Salt baths have shown positive results in symptom relief and lengthening remission of eczema and psoriasis sufferers.
Personally, when my skin was at its worst, I took a salt bath every evening, then tapered the frequency to every other day, then tapered off the baths, gradually. This means as my skin improved, I took them every other day, then every 2 days, then twice a week.
I chose not to rinse off afterwards as I felt that the salt was still working even after my bath. I would also add ground oatmeal and olive oil to the bath so that I was well moisturised. I found the baths to be very relaxing and I always had a good sleep afterwards. I would clean hairy parts daily with a kind soap like Turkish Olive oil soap or Black soap. And rinse off of course!
You will notice that having a 3-4 baths weekly for 3-4 weeks, will diminish the itch, scaling and joint complaints if you have any. Sleeping difficulties are also resolved. The spread of inflammation will decrease as well as the redness. However, as I was on medication for something else, my face took 4 months to heal from chronic scaling and sunburn in 2014.
It was the bowel cleansing and liver flushes carried out every 3 months that finally did the trick. My skin tone and texture returned to normal. I also drank plenty of water or cucumber juice to cool down the eczema body heat.
Only 1kg of salts per bath or more seems to be the most effective for treating skin conditions.
Here is my skin bathing method which is useful for preventing skin infection:
You will need olive oil, shea butter, 1kg packet of Dead Sea Salts and also 1 cup of ground oats.
- Put some olive oil in your hand with shea butter and massage into your skin.
- Run your bath with lukewarm water.
- Add all the contents of the salts packet to the bath water.
- Add the oats.
- Put 1-2 tablespoons of olive oil in the water
- Soak in the bath for up to half an hour.
- Do not pat dry after your bath – allow your skin to air dry.
- Repeat Step 1.
The sea salts clean, disinfect and moisturise your skin too. Note that you should not use soap on eczematous skin as it will dry out your skin and leave it very itchy.
The oats has a quality about it that relieves yo
