Beauty Review: Add Sea Salt to Your Skincare

Oct 10, 2018

Every September, I run into the same problem: The skin on my body dries out, and becomes an itchy mess.  No amount of moisturizer can fix it.  No gentle shower gel can minimize it.  And the itching, oh the itching.

Then, last month, a friend who suffers from keratosis pilaris, told me I should try AHAVA’s Liquid Dead Sea Salt ($22).  And, whoa, ladies, whoa.

Founded in the 1980s, AHAVA was one of the first eco-conscious skincare brands.  The products use minerals and botanicals to improve the health of your skin.  Many of the products are formulated with Osmoter, a proprietary ingredient that mimics the effect of the minerals found in the Dead Sea.  The products are paraben free, vegan, free of chemicals like Triclosan, and tested to be safe for sensitive skin.

I’ve used AHAVA products before, particularly their mud mask, but the Liquid Dead Sea Salt is on another level.  Here’s how it works:

Before you shower, you undress and spread the honey-like gel onto the skin you want to treat.  Then, you wait 2-minutes before rinsing it off.  (You can also add it to your bath.)  You don’t notice a difference immediately after, but the next day, redness, inflammation, and dryness are all reduced.  Keep using it, and the effects just get better and better.

I don’t suffer from any serious skin conditions, but the comments on the Amazon post are full of people with skin issues praising this product.   So if you’ve struggled to find a solution, give the Liquid Dead Sea Salt a try.

My dry skin is markedly better after two weeks of using this product every few days.  The itching is nearly gone.  And best of all, the acne on my shoulders is also no more.

    Belle, do you use this instead of shower gel/soap or do you take a normal shower after rinsing?

    I love Ahava for skin care. Their hand cream is amazing. I’ll have to try this.

    So glad you posted this. I had been avoided Ahava for a long time as they violated international law for a long time (their factory was in an illegal settlement in Palestine and they sourced from coastline in the West Bank). This post made me look into it again to make sure it was still the case and it looks like it may not be. Ownership changed in 2016 and there were plans to make a new factory and close the one in the settlement. I can’t find anything verifying the closure just yet though. I’m going to look into it further but I wanted to mention it for anyone else that is concerned. I’m optimistic!

The Range: Lounge/Travel Sets

If the pandemic did one thing for women, it brought back sweatpants as acceptable attire. But then, fashion decided that we couldn’t wear regular sweat pants, we needed to wear fancy sweat pants. And while it would be easy to disparage the ideal of luxury sweatpants made for chic, casual wear…have you felt how soft […]
