There are many benefits of sea salt and a number of ways it can be used in your skin care routine to promote healthy skin and boost your overall health. Sea salt can hydrate and rejuvenate skin, stimulate circulation, and reduce inflammation. Since it comes directly through the evaporation of seawater, sea salt is often less processed than other salts. Sea salt contains minerals, like sodium chloride, and trace elements, such as iodine, iron, potassium and magnesium, which provide healing properties that help to cleanse and detoxify your skin.
Epsom salt, also known as magnesium sulfate, and sea salts are the two most common types of bath salts. Compared to Epsom salt, sea salt is more absorbent which makes it more suitable to be combined with essential oils. At Dresdner Essenz, we use pure sea salt and Dead Sea salt (Maris Sal) with other natural ingredients and essential oils to offer holistic care through our products. Here are 4 benefits and different ways to use sea salt in your skin and body care routine.
Sea salt is often found in products used to help treat skin conditions, such as psoriasis, eczema, and acne. It contains a significant amount of magnesium, which fights off dry skin and helps to give you a healthy, hydrated glow. Magnesium is an electrolyte that rehydrates and replenishes your skin by strengthening its barrier. With this essential electrolyte, Dead Sea salt can help your skin retain moisture and heal from dryness and damage. Try soaking for 15 minutes in this silky-soft Peony/Jojoba Bath Salt for sensitive skin and feel its nourishing and rehydrating effects.
You can get the feeling of salon-scrubbed hands and feet without leaving the comfort of your home. Try using bath salts and products that contain sea salt to exfoliate your skin. Dead Sea salt is an excellent natural exfoliator that can remove dead skin and unclog pores. When you don’t have enough time to visit a salon, add a couple tablespoons of this Coconut & Lemon Bath Salt to warm water and soak your hands or feet for 10 to 20 minutes. This will help to remove dirt and soften calluses on your hands or feet, leaving you with a smooth and clean feeling.
Bath salts are often used to relieve muscle soreness and ease joint pain. The anti-inflammatory property associated with sea salt is beneficial for almost anyone experiencing symptoms of arthritis, back pain, joint stiffness, body aches, or muscle spasms. By stimulating circulation, increasing blood flow, and reducing inflammation, sea salt bath salts can help your body recover after a long day. Try this Post Workout Bath Salt or Muscle Therapy Bath Salt for relief after physical activity or when you’re experiencing any muscle soreness.
By combining essential oils with sea salts and other natural ingredients, our products can help you clear your sinuses, relax, and unwind before bed. If you’re feeling congested, dead sea salts can work as a decongestant. Salt therapy, also known as halotherapy, can be seen at spas as a natural treatment for breathing problems. To create an at-home salt steam, place a small amount of this Cold Relief Bath Salt in the corner of your shower and allow shower steam to fill the room. Be careful to not step directly on the bath salts to reduce the risk of slipping and avoid using our bath salts in a hot tub.
