Benefits of using Sea Salt for skin treatments:
Exfoliate: Sea salt, by nature, is grainy and therefore makes for a great scrub, when showering or bathing with it, sea salt increases blood circulation and allows for the skin to soak in ingredients from other products more effectively. In soap, the salt makes a rock hard bar that ends up as smooth as a stone with a lotion like lather.
Stress Reducer: Greeks and Romans both used warm seawater as a therapy to help people relax. This is now called talassotherapy, a word derived from the old Greek word thalassa that means sea. According to Health-Benefit-of-Water.com, sea salt bath therapy provides psychological benefits and improves quality of sleep.
Detoxifier: Sea salt is a natural detoxifier, as the salt absorbs the toxins from the skin. Make a paste out of sea salt and water, apply it to your skin and leave it on for one minute before you get into the shower. Massage the salt off gently in the shower as you bathe. This will not only help detoxify your skin, but will help exfoliate dead skin cells as you rinse it off.
Increased circulation, antiseptic effects, soft skin without a greasy feel and reduction in fluid retention are just some of the additional benefits of sea salt for the skin. Since sea salt does not go through the same manufacturing processes as table salt, the minerals from the sea remain; giving sea salts different colorings depending on where they are from. Many of these minerals also provide nutrients and benefits to the skin.
Another benefit of salt soap is that it lasts twice as long as regular soap bars in the shower due to the density and mineral content. The bars also weigh up to 25% more than a like-sized bar.
