Is your skin at rock bottom? Don’t fret, we’ve got cures for every skin crime, express delivered from the lowest point on Earth: the Dead Sea. For years, people have travelled from far and wide to roll around in the dark mud of the Dead Sea. The salt-saturated lake in Israel has a client roster as diverse and prolific as the Queen of Sheba (you read that right), Cleopatra, Victoria Beckham, Emma Watson and Madonna.
Brim-full of nutrient-rich soil and 26 magic minerals – 12 of which you can’t find anywhere else – the Dead Sea abounds with beauty miracles, addressing everything from rejuvenation and anti-aging to more serious afflictions like allergies, arthritis and psoriasis. Whaaat, you ask? Well, we’re dead serious! And now you don’t even need to buy that ticket to Israel. Ahava, the leading Dead Sea Salt & Mineral brand has truly earned its salt around the world. Now, it’s on Nykaa with a wide range of Dead Sea products, and the Queen of Sheba says you have to try it.
We soaked in their sublime potions to give you our top five favourite sea-soothing products.
