The football season is about to start and we’re excited about a summer full of sporting action.
But, no matter what level of football you play at, everyone needs to have a plan in place to help their bodies recover. This is crucial as it helps maintain overall health and fitness.
We’ve listed some benefits of how bathing in bath salts can help you post-match in our latest blog. From soothing aches and pains to replenishing nutrients in your skin.
After a 90 minute game muscles need to relax, replenish and top-up with minerals lost throughout the match. Our Muscle Therapy range is made with Dead Sea Salts due to its high mineral content, including Bromide. Its strong concentration acts to ease muscle stiffness and relax muscles.
Also, both Epsom Salts and Dead Sea Salts can help reduce the pain of aching muscles after exercise due to the pure magnesium found within the salts, which helps to encourage healthy skin tissue and soothe aching muscles.
Over exercise can sometimes result in muscle cramps and swelling. But soaking in a hot bath filled with Epsom Salts can help to decrease inflammation.
Epsom Salts have been trusted to help detoxify skin and promote wellbeing since their discovery in 1618. The pure magnesium sulphate in Epsom Salts is the reason it can help to reduce discomfort, inflammation and muscle cramps. The salts can also help flush away toxins and contaminants from the body, support muscle and nerve function and activate the body’s healing mechanism.
This can also help before a football match, as soaking in a warm bath filled with natural salts can act as a way to ease stress and help you sleep! When the body is stressed, adrenalin increases and magnesium is drained. A bath filled with Epsom Salts and Dead Sea Salts can replenish the level of minerals within the body, helping to rebalance and prepare you for the next match.
Cleansing skin after a game may not feel like a priority, but as a toxin carrier, skin needs to detoxify and remove bad bacteria to help with overall health and wellbeing.
Himalayan bath salts are said to be the purest in the world. They contain upwards of 84 different minerals and trace elements of sodium, calcium, iron, potassium and magnesium. Himalayan Salts help to stimulate circulation, detoxify and hydrate the skin, increase moisture retention and promote cellular regeneration, to give skin a deep cleanse after a football match.
