If youre working in the beauty industry, new kids on the block will always have a sweet spot. Lately, editors and influencers alike have been raving about the magical skincare properties of the Dead Sea. Thats when I delved deep into research to find out for myself if the touted saline sea lives up to its tall claims. I came across thousands of real-girl testimonies stating that the sandy waters cured them from common skin ailments. To put the hypothesis to test, little more than a week later, I packed my bags and set off for Israel.
No sooner did I check-in at the hotel than, did I already find myself booking a taxi to the Dead Sea. On reaching the beach, happy tourists floated about, sans any floats, I must add. The saltiest sea on the planet shone brightly as it beckoned me in. I started applying the gray mud from the shoreline all over my legs and hands. Fast-forward to twenty minutes later as I dipped myself to scrub off the sand, my skin literally felt baby-soft and smooth to touch. As I was drenched in a boatload of good-for-me vitamins and minerals, my body soaked in all the nutrients to nourish itself. I was a convert.
I made my first Dead Sea purchases from Alma K and below are the five game-changers that I rely on to relax and rejuvenate my skin.
There isnt a day when I skip this calming cleansing milk. I like it cos its a no-rinse formula that removes makeup as well as any sign of left-over residue. Enriched with Algae and Rosemary extracts its my one-stop-solution to moisturize my face while deep-cleansing too.
Second in my skincare routine is this toner that minimizes my pores. Harnessing the healthcare benefits of the 35% saline water, this alcohol-free formula doesnt dry my face but instead leaves it feeling revitalized and squeaky clean, with zero clogged pores.
Finishing off my three-step daily routine is this quick-to-absorb, non-sticky moisturizer that hydrates my skin all day. With Lemon, Bamboo and Sesame, its refreshingly light on my oily T-zone and doesnt leave any sign of greasiness. Also, a small pea-sized amount is all I need.
Suitable for my sensitive, oily face I use this peeling mask once a week. Infused with Pro-Vitamin B5 it heals my skin and prevents it from future damage. Plus, nourishing Avocado just adds a whole lot of hydration to the mix, keeping my delicate skin all plump and healthy.
Theres nothing I look forward to more than my Sunday-funday with this muddy mask. Packed to the brim with Seaweed, plant oils and Grapefruit extract its the only face pack I can blindly trust to not cause any breakouts. My face literally glows each time I wash it off.
