Why You Should Ditch The Foam and Try A Sea Salt Bath Soak Instead

While many of us don’t really look at labels when it comes to our skin care products, the unfortunate fact is that if you did, not only would pronouncing the ingredients be quite a struggle, but you’d be left scratching your head thinking “What is this?!”

Foam bath is one of those nasties that we assume is safe, (after all why would they sell it if it wasn’t?) but unfortunately contains less than desirable ingredients for your precious skin. Not only will harsh or chemical ingredients dry out your skin or aggravate a sensitive skin, they will put your health at risk too considering that more than 60% of everything that is applied to our skin is absorbed into our bloodstream. Pretty scary huh?

So what are you supposed to do when the bubbles have let you down? We say, ditch the chemicals and treat your skin to a 100% pure sea salt soak!

Benefits of Sea Salt For The Skin

If you have never tried a sea salt soak then you are seriously missing out! Sea salt is jam packed with wonderful minerals such as magnesium, potassium and calcium that will not only leave your skin feeling like a baby’s bottom, it has wonderful benefits for the mind too.

Sea salt will help to draw toxins out of the skin and the body, helping to clear up inflammatory conditions such as acne, as well as encourage a healthy internal environment. In fact, if you’ve been feeling particularly stressed, we highly recommend soaking in a sea salt soak for up to 30 minutes and allow the sea salt to work its magic on your mind and body.

Sea salt can help to regulate oil production, thus reducing clogged pores and acne breakouts, and the anti-inflammatory properties of magnesium will help to soothe conditions such as eczema.

Sea salt will also promote healthy blood flow and gently exfoliate the skin for skin that glows with health! Oh, and if your muscles are sore, then look no further than a sea salt soak!
