Is there anything Himalayan salt can’t do? Most of us know that adding a Himalayan Salt lamp to our spaces not only adds a beautiful and calming aesthetic, it also helps to purify the air we breathe in. However, few of us know the benefits of using Himalayan salt on the skin.
The salt is added at trace and nicely exfoliates the skin when you decide to felt it or just use a washcloth. Enough of the salt comes off onto the washcloth to help exfoliate the skin; removing dead skin cells and leaving your skin more youthful and glowing.
2.Help Balance Natural Oils.
Salt bars must be formulated differently in order to not crumble because of the salt. This insures that they have a higher super fat content. Skin is not stripped, but gently exfoliated and nourished at the same time.
Salts help to draw impurities from the skin, making for a wonderfully detoxing skin routine that doesn’t require a salt bath to accomplish.
4.Not Drying To The Skin.
Many people who have not used salt bars think that they will dry the skin because of the salt content, but I have not found this to be true…and I battled dry skin daily before using a handmade salt bar.
Some people have seen amazing results with their acne after switching to a natural salt bar. I believe this is a result of all of the benefits listed so far. The salt helps to gently exfoliate the skin, while detoxing and helping to balance the oils.
Because salt bars are formulated differently, they end up having a creamy lather rather than a big bubble lather. This gives a luxurious feel as you are washing.
7. Minerals For The Skin.
Sea Salt contains many minerals, primarily magnesium, potassium, iodine, calcium, and zinc.
8. Help Reduce Inflammation.
The combination of minerals, oils, and salt will help relieve water retention, helping reduce inflammation in legs, as well as other problem areas.
