As our biggest organ, skin not only protects us, but it’s natural barrier for fighting against bacteria and the elements can be worn down due to the numerous factors we put it through. This is why it’s important we take care of our skin and support it in protecting us.
One way to do this is using natural salts to help replenish skin and make it the strongest it can possibly be. Bathing in salts with warm water can help to improve not only your skin, but your mood and overall well-being.
But how exactly can they help your skin?
Bath salts are filled with minerals which carry many benefits beyond just smelling great. Mixed with warm water, these minerals are easily absorbed into our pores and help to detoxify, purify and nourish skin on a molecular level. Our Dead Sea Salts are renowned for having a different composition to other sea salt.
Most oceanic salt is approximately 85% sodium chloride (the same as table salt) but Dead Sea Salt is only 12 to 18% sodium chloride. This means skin is absorbing beneficial minerals such as magnesium, potassium and sodium to improve mood, relieve stress, encourage healthy skin tissue and aid skin detoxification.
Kind to sensitive skin
Skin can see chemicals as foreign agents, which is what can cause a reaction or irritation. In serious cases, conditions such as eczema and psoriasis can develop, which can be uncomfortable and sometimes painful. The natural minerals within salts can help to relieve skin and help it’s natural barrier to replenish and cleanse without causing pain.
For example, the sodium in bath salts binds the water to the outer layer of the skin, moisture is preserved which, along with the benefits of the minerals included in bath salts, helps to ease the discomfort of some skin conditions such as eczema or psoriasis. Our 100% Dead Sea Bath Salts Fragrance Free for Sensitive Skin can relieve skin without causing more damage.
Giving your skin a good detox can sometimes not be a priority, but as a toxin carrier, skin needs to be flushed out of the bad bacteria which can build up in its pores.
Our Epsom Salts can help to draw toxic waste swiftly from your skins pores and reduce inflammation by harnessing the magnesium rich salts to activate the body’s healing mechanism and reduce itchy and irritated skin. Epsom salts are also capable of exfoliating your skin, without dehydrating it. This helps to keep your biggest organ hydrated and replenished.
