Salt, Health & Beauty: A Brief Dead Sea Guide

July 10, 2013

A Dead Sea Guide providing a brief overview of the Dead Sea and how it impacts tourists and those further afield.

The Dead Sea is one of the most unique places on Planet Earth. Part geological rarity, part beach resort, part health spa, and part beauty industry warehouse, there’s a diverse nature to this giant salt water lake.


This brief Dead Sea Guide will reveal the main areas of interest associated with the lake and surrounding region, as well as the influence it has beyond its immediate geographical location.


With the Jordan River flowing into it, the Dead Sea sits between Israel and Jordan, partially acting as a natural border. It is high in saline and other minerals, which have made it incapable of sustaining life. When humans enter it waters, they are completely buoyant and will not sink.


The minerals and salts to be found within its waters prove beneficial to humans. They offer therapeutic qualities that can be used to improve osteoarthritis, psoriasis, and eczema, amongst other things, while also providing revitalization and refreshment to skin.


These positive traits have led to the emergence of health spas upon its shores. Visitors travel from across the world looking to soak-up it’s healthiness through any number of different treatments. Of course, plenty of people visit the Dead Sea and its surrounding regions simply to enjoy a relaxing vacation, while taking in the sites.


In addition to being a choice vacation destination, the Dead Sea is also the focus of a thriving cosmetics industry.
