I am a huge advocate of skincare. After all beautiful skin starts with taking good care of your skin! A friend of mine suggested I try soaking in bath salts. I was 9 + months post pregnancy and still having back pain. Getting through a workout was difficult and definitely holding me back. So I went to the drugstore to find some cheap-o bath salts. I soaked in hot water every other day…and my back pain was no more. My mobility improved and I can finally get through a real workout without having to wince through the back pain.
The benefits of bath salts harvested from the Dead Sea have been shown to effectively treat and manage symptoms of osteoarthritis and tendinitis. Not only do they have incredible healing properties (if you get 100% sea salt) you are sure to have the smoothest, softest skin. You can even use them as a scrub or cleanser (just remember to add hot to mild-hot water).
After using the cheap-o salts for some time, I started to notice my skin was drying out. After research and sifting through reviews I finally came across a brand called Ahava. This is a truly unique brand of bath salts. Their salts contain rejuvenating minerals harvested direct from the Dead Sea. They also have face and mud masks I can’t wait to slather on. Allergy tested, paraben free, not tested on animals AND approved for sensitive skin. Its also a company that gives back, they work to preserve the environmental balance of the Dead Sea Region and provide Education for young people about the preservation of the Dead Sea. Bath Salts are a wonderful way to relax. Let’s face it ladies, with all the demands we have on us these days we need some pampering! Whether it be from work stress, travel fatigue, health issues and ailments, or refereeing a ninja-kicking fight your kids are engaged in. Because life stressors exist, I definitely recommend trying a nice hot salt soak in the tub. You’re going to be hooked.
