The licensed cosmetologists at The Dead Sea Skin Care & Day Spa administer Dead Sea salt-infused treatments that have roots in both Middle Eastern and European beauty traditions. Eyebrows gain renewed definition and shape during the full eyebrow threading, a venerated Middle Eastern technique that involves plucking away glossy hairs with string. The precision of the method allows technicians to create exact shapes and perform rigorous upkeep. During the full leg and bikini wax, unwanted hair waves tearful farewells as American warm-honey wax or Middle Eastern sugar wax lifts it from the leg and bikini line in a single quick stroke. The technician also applies the Middle Eastern sugar wax a second time to remove dead skin, boost cellular turnover, and collect donations of excess cells to clothe a recently molted snake.
Clients can also choose to brighten skin with a Dead Sea hammam style scrub ($95), an olive-oil and salt treatment that whisks away old skin cells. Henna tattoos ($15–$35) bedeck bodies in either traditional designs or such custom patterns as swirls and depictions of the client’s favorite city-council member.
The Dead Sea Skin Care & Day Spa
Inside this relaxing oasis, aestheticians and massage therapists infuse their treatments with mineral-rich elements of the Dead Sea. Its mud and salts exfoliate the skin during hammam-style scrubs, which also use olive-oil soaps to cleanse and moisturize. The mud is swept over faces during middle eastern facials, where it works to shrink pores and remove impurities. In addition to these nourishing treatments, the staff beautifies patrons with haircuts, Shellac manicures, and henna tattoos.
