Bath salt can do wonders for your skin, and it's been called the "secret weapon" of the new millennium. You've probably heard about it. But have you ever tried it?
Most people don't consider buying bath salts until they get a little older, but a lot of us have them in our bathroom already. And for most of us, our personal favorites are those in the pre-packaged tubs. The problem is that most of them are not natural sea salt. That is not a good idea.
There are many different types of bath salts out there. While there is one popularly-sold brand called Dove, most of them are not natural. They are made from a mixture of chemicals and animal byproducts. Some contain chemical additives, while others have chemicals that are supposed to help treat dry skin.
Before you begin to think that you should use one of the different types of bath salts, I have to remind you that everyone's skin is different. When you buy the kind that is supposed to be your favorite, make sure that it's a 100% pure sea salt. I'm talking from an organic source.
One way to find this out is to add a few drops of the bath salt to a small sample of your skin and take a picture. If the bottle says that it contains Dead Sea salt, you know that it's the real deal.
So, you might be wondering what your next step is when you decide to use the bath salt. Well, if you're lucky enough to have a tub that is room temperature, you'll just add a small amount of sea salt to it. If not, then you will need to place it in the tub before you begin.
In the tub, you'll want to wash your face with warm water and apply some honey to your skin. Then just wait. You'll notice a difference in the next morning.
Another way to use the bath salt is to saturate a tampon in it, dip it into the bath water, and then insert it into your skin. Be careful not to press too hard, or you could damage your skin.
In addition to your bath salt, there are several other products that are great for your skin. For example, you can use either salicylic acid or witch hazel to clear up acne. Both are natural, so they will not damage your skin.
You can also use the bath salt as a skin toner, or even an eye gel. Just mix up a small bowl of it and apply to the affected area for a few minutes. It will help to exfoliate the skin without irritating it.
You can also use the bath salt to pep up your appearance. Mix it up into a paste and rub it into your hair. It makes your hair look shinier and shinier.
You can buy the bath salt from Amazon or at a health food store. But remember that these items are not all natural, so be aware of the ingredients and what they contain.
