Sea salt is so full of nutrients and vitamins that it can help the skin in many ways. Not only as an exfoliating product to gently remove damaged and dead skin cells, leaving the skin hydrated and clear, but also by providing many of the vitamins and minerals that the skin needs to regenerate and remain healthy. There are many ways to use this ingredient to benefit both the body and skin. It can be added to a tub for a soak, used in a foot bath, made into a scrub or mask for the face, in a cleanser, or even as a mouthwash or rinse.
The most common use of sea salt in skin care is as an exfoliant. With just a little water, coconut oil, or even olive oil, it can become a multipurpose skincare solution. Added to water and mixed into a spray bottle it can be sprayed on the face every morning or night to assist in clearing acne. The salt helps to clean all the pores, even under the surface, as well as helping to balance the skin, and will help to dry out any acne causing excess oil production. The minerals in sea salt help to bring balance to the skin in any application, including a bath or foot soak. It also helps pull out toxins and remove them from the body. The balance brought to the skin creates a healthy glow and helps deter build up of dead cells or dry skin.
For further removal of build up, an exfoliator can be created with an oil, such as olive oil or coconut oil. Do not mix until it dissolves, as the rough texture will do the hard work. Gently scrub the skin anywhere that’s needed to remove build up of oil, cleansers, film, and dead or damaged skin cells. This creates a clean slate for the skin cells that are healthy to show and replace any dead skin cells. The removal of the build up also allows for other skincare products to do their job better, and skin will appear hydrated, younger, and healthier.
The anti-inflammatory properties of sea salt are also key in reducing the swelling and inflammation that cause redness and puffiness of the skin. This helps to reduce wrinkles, deter discoloration, and keep skin looking clear with a healthy glow.
Sea salt has many minerals and nutrients that assist in keeping the skin healthy and can help to remove build up and dead or damaged cells, while providing the nutrients needed for the remaining cells to heal and to remain healthy. It brings balance to the skin and the body, defying the signs of aging and reducing acne breakouts, while creating healthy skin and maintaining that balance.
