Why All Beauty-Lovers Should Plan a Trip to the Dead Sea
A visit to the Dead Sea is any beauty writer's dream because of the skin care benefits it is known for, so you can imagine just how elated I was to visit myself. It's also incredibly beautiful with its white, salty shores and gem-like, hypersaline waters. For those unaware, the Dead Sea is located smack in the middle of the desert — between Jordan on the east and Israel and Palestine on the west — so the surrounding views further add to the beauty.
I'd seen pictures and read about the research happening there, but that still didn't prepare me completely. For example, I didn't know prior to arriving that I'd feel elated because of the increased oxygen and bromide in the air, or that my pale skin would be much safer hanging out at the beach due to the extremely low elevation. I was afforded the visit through a nonprofit organization, Vibe Israel, who arranged an informational excursion with a tiny, two-person-run boat tour company.
Whether you're planning a visit yourself, are simply curious about the area, or want to live vicariously through another, these five Dead Sea tidbits will sate you.
