A polish man takes a mud bath in the dead sea.
The natural black mud is a mixture of many Dead Sea salts and minerals, rich in magnesium, natural tar (bitumen), and the silicates (silicon compounds), the organic elements from the shoreline all blended with earth. It is the silicates that have the effect of a mask to the skin and is useful for cleansing and softening the skin resulting in a wonderful glow. Generally, Dead Sea mud on the skin improves and stimulates blood circulation.
