Beauty cornucopia: Minerals and mud -- good for skin

“Minerals in these therapeutic baths, including sodium bicarbonate and calcium, increase circulation in the body to help remove waste and bring oxygen to the cells -- a recipe for fresh, glowing and healthy skin. In addition, if the bath is hot, the higher temperatures encourage sweating, even in the water, which can help to flush out toxins," says Dr. Murad. "Mud baths can be a relaxing and indulgent experience. But in addition to being a natural spa treatment, mud that is used therapeutically often contains sulfur, chloride, fluoride and other naturally occurring chemicals, which help clear and detoxify the complexion."
