Number 4-Heading

We often forget about giving our skin the TLC that it so richly needs and deserves. We need to suppliment our daily skin care routine with a weekly mud mask facial. A mud mask is often the only way to remove the dirt and debris embedded deep in our skin layers. Our skin cells are constantly being replaced while dead cells accumulate and slow down our epidermal (outer layer of skin) function. The regular use of a mud mask removes those dead cells and stimulates the circulation of blood in your face. It can bring oxygen and other essential nutrients to the skin. Using a mud mask once a week to hydrate and tone your skin is the best way to help encourage healthy skin.


First cleanse your face completely and rinse well with warm water. If you have oily skin you can use our All Natural Exfoliating Dead Sea Salts prior to using a mask.

For a real treat you can apply some honey, (preferably organic) under your eyes and dip some cotton balls into your favorite (cooled) herbal tea to place on your eyelids while you are relaxing during your treatment.

Apply the mask thinly to your face with very gentle strokes, moving your fingers away from the center of your face except under your eyes. For the eye area, gently stroke from the outer cheekbones inward towards your nose. Once the mask is thoroughly spread over your face, massage lightly into the skin. “For those of you who are like me and can not afford the sybaritic pleasure of a facial massage done by a professional, I always put a comfortable chair in our bathroom. Here is where I lie back into the chair with my eyes closed and covered with cotton balls dipped into a cool herbal tea and gently and slowly stroke my mask covered skin. If you are stressed out, worn out or just plain tired-This is the cure.” If you have a partner, talk them into a mutual facial. This can be a great experience. You just have to be careful and not completely spoil your partner!

After applying the mask lie down in a peaceful, comfortable place or relax in a warm bath for 15 to 20 minutes. To enhance the serenity and add to the experience dip cotton balls into cooled chamomile or your favorite herbal tea and cover your eyelids.

To remove the mask spread a warm washcloth on your face to soften the mask and then the mask will more easily wash off. Follow by dipping the washcloth in cool water and apply to your face. This will help close the pores of your skin and while refreshing you.

We recommend you use our Dead Sea Mud Mask with Moor Mud & Rhassoul Clay.

This mask is great for all skin types from dry to oily to acne prone. It evens out skin tones, soothes and calms your skin while it firms and improves elasticity.

This unique, natural and effective mask is formulated with Dead Sea Mud, Moor Mud, Rhassoul Clay and Coconut Oil which has been infused with skin loving herbs. This natural mask boosts cell renewal and revitalizes your skin while it tightens your pores. As the mask begins to dry the rhassoul clay gently pulls out toxins and impurities known to clog pores and cause visible signs of aging. The Moor Mud which contains almost no clay and consists mainly of organic remains of flowers, plants, herbs and grasses. Its mysterious ability to heal, nourish and detoxify has been observed by people for millennia and has been used scientifically in European Spas for well over a century. It is used not only to beautify, but also to heal. It has anti-aging, natural antibiotics, biochemical and anti-inflammatory actions.

The small molecular structure of coconut oil allows for easy absorption through the skin, giving it a soft, smooth texture. Easily absorbed into the skin the coconut oil which has been infused with Gotu Kola, Comfrey and chamomile carries the beneficial herbs into the skin. Gotu Kola strengthens the skin, increases the concentration of antioxidants in wounds, and restores inflamed tissues by increasing blood supply to connective tissue. It enhances the synthesis of collagen that results in the thickening of the skin which we know is necessary to combat wrinkles created from thinning skin. The comfrey has an ancient reputation as a wound-healer. The comfrey is loaded with the healing agents mucilage and allantoin, a cell proliferant that speeds up the natural replacement of body cells while the chamomile reduces inflammation, irritation, skin redness and it promotes granulation and skin cell regeneration.

For acne prone skin we recommend that you begin your facial treatment by cleansing your skin with our Moor Mud Bar.

For dry or maturing skin follow up your mud mask with a quality facial moisturizer.
