Our Skin Our skin is the first thing we see when we look in the mirror. All too often, our skin shows signs of wear and tear – it is rough, scaly, inflamed, and dry. Our skin is the first victim in the aging process, with creases and wrinkles that often appear too soon, making us look older and more tired than we feel. Dead Sea minerals help nourish and treat the skin in a variety of ways, restoring balance and rejuvenating the outer and inner layers, making us appear younger and healthier.
