the skincare benefits of the dead sea:
I'm sure you're wondering by now what it might do for skin and the benefits are surprisingly good! A recent medical study for example that was conducted by Dr. I. Machtey on just over 100 patients, shows promising results: 80% of the participants reported less pain with 70% experiencing more mobility and 60% were even able to reduce the amount of medications they were taking!
Another study headed by Dr. J. Arndt, included 59 patients that were being treated for psoriasis during a month-long period. In just as little time as a week, the patients with a 10% Dead Sea salt composition were showing good improvements of their condition! It's also been shown through these studies to have little side effects, especially when comparing to the prescribed options!
Dead Sea minerals are fantastic at helping skin retain moisture, improving skin strength, and even slowing skin aging. Circulation and balance are greatly improved as well- the best part being that it's all being done the natural way :) It can provide relief from skin itching and scaling too, which makes it a great candidate for those with sensitive skin or other skin conditions such as eczema.

skincare product review:
leliasea body lotion $10
I really liked LeliaSea's hand lotion so I had a good feeling about this product before I even got to give it a try! It was nice knowing beforehand that a product is going to be good and I really did feel that with this body lotion with LeliaSea :) I fell in LOVE with the hand lotion product some time ago, and it's something I use on a daily basis- the moisturizer sits on my desk and makes for a nice convenience while at work.
The scent is fantastic- it's just the right mix of a light and clean scent, without being overpowering. As for the formula, it's light but also manages to provide a good barrier of moisturization without feeling heavy and there's no greasiness to speak of. This body lotion really does impress- especially for the great price of only $10 :)
This would make a great gift for any age or skin type and would be an excellent product for those with sensitive skin too. There's also the added bonus of Dead Sea Salt and Vitamin E that really gives the formula its boosting power. This body lotion's effectiveness and affordability really make it a great score!
