How to manage the stresses of starting University

How to manage the stresses of starting University

It’s that time of year when teenagers are finally leaving home and embarking on one of life’s big adventures – starting at University.

It’s an emotional journey for all involved – and sometimes can be stressful.

For the young it means adapting to living in a completely different environment with increased personal responsibility, away from family, making new friends, studying a new subject …

And whilst a new chapter is opening that is going to be full of promise and excitement, the stresses involved can sometimes exacerbate an existing eczema or psoriasis condition.

Prevention in this case can may be better than cure, so it’s worth packing some Dead Sea Bathcare products along with all the other student paraphernalia.

We’d suggest our original Dead Sea Bath Salts – perfect for sinking into after an afternoon’s sport or after a tough day at lectures.

If time is a bit more limited then use Dead Sea Natural Mineral Shower Creme and moisturise afterwards with Dead Sea Body Lotion.

All these products have had excellent reviews by eczema and psoriasis sufferers who have found they really relieved symptoms.

For acne breakouts, our Black Mud Mask Soap has a cult following – and also helps with other skin conditions.

None of our products are expensive, they can all be bought in Boots and are suitable for vegans. They are also chemical free and only contain natural ingredients so users can be reassured they’re only putting natural goodness from the Dead Sea onto their skin .

You can buy all our Dead Sea products online here – browse through.

Even if you don’t suffer from a skin complaint, all our skincare products are wonderful for maintaining a healthy skin and are SLS free and without parabens.



Multi-tasking beauty products

Multi-tasking beauty products

Do you ever get the feeling that life just seems to be one big rush – that you never get time to do things in quite the way you’d like?

It’s often a juggling act to pull everything together.

Which is why our multi-tasking beauty products will help you to keep that balancing act going.

Take our Genuine Dead Sea Bath Salts. Pour a handful in a warm bath at the end of the day and you can relax in the waters, knowing that you are doing everything you can to promote a good night’s sleep so that you feel refreshed the next day. You’ll also be helping along any skin conditions you may suffer from like eczema and psoriasis, as our Bath Salts have been reported to have a very beneficial effect.

On the other hand, if you’re a shower sort of person you could try out our Shower Cream which will cleanse and relax and flush out toxins ( so perfect if you’ve just been to the gym). It doesn’t dry out the skin either and again could help soothe skin problems.

People with skin conditions have reported very good results after using our Dead Sea products – particularly those with eczema and psoriasis – so our products don’t just clean your skin naturally (and without using any animal fats) but as a by-product you may also notice that your skin improves dramatically.

Our Black Mud Mask soap is another multi-tasking product. Forget having to have a cleanser for your face in the shower and another for your body. Use our Black Mud Mask soap all over your skin – it has a cumulatively beneficial effect reducing acne, eczema and psoriasis symptoms. Although of course you don’t have to suffer from any of these to appreciate the results it brings.

Many users like to lather it up and leave on their face for a minute or so, letting it as a face pack.

Try our products and you may discover that you don’t need to cram your bathroom shelves quite so full after all. One product, like our Black Mud Mask soap, will cleanse and detoxify your skin beautifully.

None of our Dead Sea bathcare items are expensive – the soaps start at £3.77 in Boots and you can buy everything online here.


The misery of psoriasis – is there anything you can do about it?

The misery of psoriasis – is there anything you can do about it?

Psoriasis isn’t a respecter of money, lifestyle or status – if you suffer from it, you suffer.

Even A-list celebs are allegedly afflicted.

But if you’re in the midst of a bout of psoriasis, knowing that there are famous  sufferers isn’t likely to make you feel much better about it.

And the trouble with psoriasis is that it can often flare up when you least want it to. Before you have an important meeting at work. Or a time you want to look your best – at a party or special event.

Over time you’ve probably become an expert at managing your own psoriasis and have a good idea of what triggers it. It might be stress. It might be certain foods. Sunshine. Maybe an allergy to something.

At the end of the day it’s all about avoiding those triggers as much as possible. Which is easier said than done. Because a bit of stress is good for us. Gives us the motivation to get things done, gives us energy and purpose.

Your doctor could well have prescribed steroid treatment to help you deal with your worst flare ups – and with very good reason.

But what’s a good way of maintaining your skin healthily in the meantime?

Well, many sufferers have found our natural Dead Sea products extremely useful in their maintenance programme.

Soaking in our Natural Dead Sea Bath Salts can soothe psoriasis and act as a natural destressor.

You might also like to try our Black Mud Mask and Sulphur Soaps. Using soap on your psoriasis may seem like a counter-intuitive idea but again, many sufferers have found them useful. Read their testimonials here and see for yourself.

After your bath or shower (try our Natural Mineral Shower Creme too) you could moisturise your skin with our Natural Mineral Body Lotion).

Apart from the testimonials, you can be assured that you aren’t putting any artificial chemicals on your skin. All our products are 100% natural from the Dead Sea, contain no parabens , no animal fats and are SLS free . They’re also vegan if that’s the diet you follow.

Maybe they’re worth a try? You can buy them all online in Boots here and none are expensive.




Should We Be One Of Your New Year Resolutions?

Should We Be One Of Your New Year Resolutions?

Looking good, feeling great

It’s a cliché, but if you feel good, then you’re likely to glow from the inside out and look your best as a result. Maybe that’s why brides always seem to have a beautiful glow on their wedding days!

But what if you find that your skin tends to let you down?

If you have a condition like eczema, psoriasis or acne then it’s hard to feel great on the inside when you don’t feel you look your best.

Which is where we’d like to help you

Our products are all 100% natural and have helped many sufferers of skin conditions. Some acne sufferers wouldn’t be without our cult Black Mud Mask soap. Many teenagers put far too many astringent chemicals on their skin in the hope of making it clearer but in many cases all this does is exacerbate the problem causing redness and dryness. Far better to use something that’s more natural that won’t stir up trouble.

We’re delighted to report that irritating conditions like scalp psoriasis have also been eased by products like our conditioner.

teenagers with good skin

Clear, unblemished skin is a real mission for many teenagers who suffer from acne

The waters of the Dead Sea have long been a source of relief to sufferers of skin complaints, rheumatism and arthritis. Now of course, in an ideal world, you’d have a special tap in your bathroom that ran water direct from the Dead Sea so that you could soak up its benefits whenever you wanted.

Obviously, that’s not a practical solution but choosing a Dead Sea product you can soak in, lather onto your skin or wash your hair with is an easy way forward.

If you’re a vegetarian or vegan, you can be very comfortable using our products as they contain no animal fats at all. Also no parabens and are sls free, so you’re also looking after your skin without resorting to chemicals.

Rather than creating fancy packaging and paying supermodels to promote our products, we’ve always preferred to let them speak for themselves. And if you look at some of the write-ups and reviews by the Financial Times and various magazines, as well as our loyal customers, you’ll see why.

You might like to start off by trying our Natural Mineral Soap which you can buy in Boots for just £3.75 or maybe our Natural Mineral Shower Cream at £7.79.

It could be a whole new start for your skincare routine – see what a difference we make to your skin  in 2015.
