Last week I was having quiet irritated skin, and I had no idea what it could have been… It’s autumn here in the southern hemisphere, and for me that means extra dry air.
Back to what I was talking about; I couldn’t for the life of me figure out what was wrong with my skin, but out of sheer dumb luck (I guess), I decided to try Bella Terra Milky Cleanser, and there was a cooling effect, immediately followed by some relief.
Although I wasn’t completely sure what I was doing, it worked, and so I thought to myself;
“Oh snap… Time for a Bella Terra Cosmetics Review”
The cleanser gave the same sort of cooling relief as someone who was using anti-aging products would receive, so then I began to wonder to myself;
What does the Bella Terra Milky Cleanser have in common with anti-aging products?
The answer: Bella Terra Milky Cleanser has Dead Sea Salts
The benefits of Dead Sea mineral salts have been well known since ancient times. I think the most famous visitor to the “World’s Oldest Spa” was Cleopatra, who would visit with her husband Herod the Great, and frequented the Dead Sea for its minerals and mud.
She even purportedly urged her lover Mark Antony to conquer the region so that she might have an unlimited supply of the minerals!
So what; Bella Terra Milky Cleanser has Dead Sea Salts?!
My thoughts exactly! But then I saw the ingredient again in Bella Terra Lifting Eye Serum, and that’s when I decided to give it a chance…
What are Dead Sea Salts, in Bella Terra Cosmetics?
Good question! I used to think that they were just normal minerals that just happened to be farmed from the Dead Sea. No big deal, right? Wrong!
Although it’s true that Dead Sea salt is salt from the Dead Sea, this “sea” is technically a lake, and is also known as the lowest point on earth.
What’s the difference between Epsom Salts, and Dead Sea Salts?
The funny thing was; I imagined Epsom Salts to be Dead Sea Salts before I did some research on this ingredient, and now I blush at the idea of how silly that is.
The Dead Sea Salts in Bella Terra Mineral Cosmetics, and Epsom salts benefit specific skin and neuromuscular conditions when applied externally, according to the University of Maryland Medical Center (UMMC).
Both types of salts provide nourishing elements which absorb through the skin. While the nutrients provided vary according to the type of salt, both salts benefit similar conditions in preliminary research.
All in all; Dead Sea Salts are far more effective if you’re trying to getting more youthful, calmer, smoother, and more supple skin!
What makes Dead Sea Salts in Bella Terra Cosmetics So Special?
The Dead Sea has been recognized for centuries as a center for wellness and health, thanks to the low air pollution and temperate climate. The sea’s shores are lined with hotels, resorts, and health spas.
Note: Did you know that people travel to the Dead Sea to enjoy the many cosmetic and medicinal benefits of Dead Sea salt water, and for those of us who can’t make the trip, it’s possible for us to enjoy the same benefits at home, using Bella Terra Cosmetics.
What’s so special about the Dead Sea?
The water is literally filled with salt. As a matter of fact, swimmers simply float on the top of the water, as the salt water increases buoyancy to a point where it’s difficult to sink!
Unlike the water found elsewhere which holds around 3% salt, the Dead Sea holds 33% salt, – 10 times the amount of salt found in other sea water.
This is probably going to be my favourite Bella Terra Cosmetics Review to be honest, because clear skin is something so close to home for me.
Won’t the Dead Sea Salts in Bella Terra Cosmetics dry my skin?
The salt itself is unique as well. When you look at it, it’s often dull and off-white in color, in contrast to the brightness of ordinary salt.
Dead Sea salt tastes bitter when compared to the salt you buy at the store – this is due to the fact that Dead Sea salt has almost no sodium (10%) when compared to table salt (90%).
To answer your question, using Bella Terra Cosmetics’ Milky Cleanser won’t dry out your skin, because the salts found in the Dead Sea are mineral salts.
Don’t all salts contain minerals?
If that’s your question, then you are right! It’s true that all ocean salt contains minerals, but the salts of the Dead Sea contain a much higher concentration of minerals than other salts. These minerals include zinc, iodine, potassium, calcium, bromides, and many more.
These minerals are naturally occurring in the human body and are crucial to many processes, and need to be replenished regularly as they are lost.
What will Dead Sea Salts in Bella Terra Cosmetics do for my skin?
Cleansing your skin with Dead Sea salt does wonders.
Skin problems, such as rashes, sores, hives, and itching, can be treated by soaking, or washing your skin with hot water, and Bella Terra Cosmetics’ Milky Cleanser, which as I mentioned will not dry your skin. The large amounts of magnesium, and bromide in Dead Sea Salts cleanse and disinfect your skin, making you less susceptible to skin-related allergies. Dead Sea salt also treats acne, psoriasis, dermatitis, eczema, dandruff, scabies and seborrhea.
Dead Sea salts are also effective in fighting water retention, and cellulite!
What about Dead Sea Salts in Bella Terra Cosmetics’ Lifting Eye Serum?
Okay, well apart from the minerals that I spoke about above, Dead Sea Salts may not necessarily be as high in Sodium as normal sold, and this is not necessarily as bad a thing, because the little that it does have, is highly effective.
You see, Sodium ions remove skin scales and improve its permeability.
So after penetrating into the skin, the Dead Sea Salts in Bella Terra Cosmetics’ Lifting Eye Serum will bind the water, and generate a feeling of suppleness, all the while relieving stiffness and maintaining a neutral environment in the skin.
This sort of ingredient is really quiet ideal for very dry skin.
Can Bella Terra Cosmetics’ Lifting Eye Serum remove wrinkles?
One study, conducted by Erhhardt Proksch, MD, PhD, reported that the high concentration of magnesium in Dead Sea Salt was instrumental in improving skin hydration and reducing inflammation. Further research by Dr. Proksch found that Dead Sea Salts can play a significant role as an anti-aging treatment.
Dr. Proksch’s findings indicated that Dead Sea Salt’s benefits showed a 40% reduction in the depth of wrinkling.
And whilst I strongly recommend giving the Lifting Eye Serum a try yourself, and coming to your own conclusion, there is no reason to disbelieve these findings.
Obviously you should always consult your own dermatologist if you are nervous about trying something that sounds this absolutely amazing, but if you are like me, and just love trying new things; especially if they can make your skin better, you can visit Bella Terra’s site and get your Milky Cleanser, or Lifting Eye Serum for a special online price.
Gain relief from skin sensitivities once and for all!
