Yesterday was the start of Rheumatoid Arthritis Awareness Week. It’s a condition that’s very common resulting in stiffness in the joints reducing general mobility. Other symptoms such as fatigue and difficulty sleeping are very common as well. Managing with any form of Arthritis can be difficult but there are ways you can ease discomfort caused by this condition and some of its symptoms.

AT HOME

At Elements our two main skincare ranges, Dead Sea Spa Magik and Spa Find are not only completely natural but use minerals that are found in the Dead Sea. Studies have been carried out specifically on those suffering with arthritis and have found a significant improve in their general wellbeing (Improved mobility and sleep and less joint pain) when using a high concentration of bath salts containing minerals on a regular basis.

Opt for the Spa Find Dead Sea Bath Salts – use one bag per bath for a higher concentration, make sure you soak in there for twenty minutes. Treatment is recommended twice a week.
For a localised treatment on the hands a feet, add the contents to 2.5L of warm water and soak for 30 minutes (this solution can be reused for up to two weeks by re-heating).
