Without a doubt the world’s most amazing place, the Jordan Rift Valley is a dramatic, beautiful landscape, which at the Dead Sea, is over 400m (1,312 ft.) below sea level. The lowest point on the face of the earth, this vast stretch of water receives a number of incoming rivers. The leading attraction at the Dead Sea is the warm, soothing, super salty water itself – some ten times saltier than sea water, and rich in chloride salts of magnesium, sodium, potassium, bromine and several others.

Dead sea mineral mud more like soft dark gray clay, filled with more than 35 diverse minerals. Coat yourself in a thin layer of Dead Sea mud and bask in the sun for about an hour or until it dries and becomes hard to the touch. Your beauty treatment is now almost complete — rinse off your mud mask in the Dead Sea with special precaution for your eyes, nose and mouth to find how soft your skin will feel.
