Beneficial Salts for a Spa Worthy Experience
If you are seeking a blissfully indulgent spa-like experience at home, consider incorporating salts into your bathing ritual. Different varieties of salt are actually quite beneficial to the skin. Seed recently introduced Luxurious Bath Add-Ins to enhance your bath. Choose one per Bath Blossom and soak your cares away.
We have three different types of salt to add into our popular Bath Blossoms: Dead Sea Salt, Pink Himalayan Salt, and Epsom Salt. Before you say, "Well, salt is salt, right?" we'd like to discuss the differences. You likely picture table salt when we say "salt" -- this type of salt is iodize d. It has also been finely ground and highly refined. This type of salt comes from underground salt deposits. This is not the type of salt that is beneficial for the skin.
The Benefits of Dead Sea Salt
Dead Sea Salt can benefit you from the inside out. The Dead Sea is known for its amazing mineral content. Beauty enthusiasts around the globe seek out its many benefits. Dead Sea Salt -- which is inedible -- contains more than 20 different minerals, including high amounts of calcium, bromide, manganese, and zinc. When you are bathing, the minerals are absorbed through the skin and help to stimulate blood circulation.
Research indicates that skin conditions such as psoriasis, eczema, and acne may find relief by soaking in this type of salt.
The Benefits of Pink Himalayan Salt
Pink Himalayan Salt comes from the Punjab region of Pakistan. It is said that over 80 minerals are present in this salt, which is known for easing skin soreness. Pink Himalayan Salt is also the purest form of salts you will find. If you have muscle aches or cramping due to PMS, you may find this to be beneficial. Holistic practitioners refer to this salt as a detoxifier.
Another perk? After a good soak with Himalayan Pink Salt, you will likely feel energized and refreshed.
The Benefits of Epsom Salt
Don't let the name fool you here. Epsom Salt is not actually salt, even though it looks very much like a salt and has salt in the name. In Epsom in Surrey, England, there is a bitter saline spring. This is where the name Epsom Salt originates. Epsom Salt is a wonderful add-in for your bath, as it is a pure mineral compound of magnesium and sulfate. It is naturally occurring and absorbs easily through the skin.
If you have tired, achy muscles, Epsom Salt is one to consider. Many moons ago when I worked as a full time traveling makeup artist, I wore super high heels and was on my feet 10 hours a day. When I would get home, I'd add Epsom Salts to the tub and my tired feet and calves would immediately feel a sense of relief. Epsom salt may also help alleviate abdominal cramps and tension headaches, Additionally, it offers deodorizing properties.

Choosing body care products formulated with Green Tea can help minimize the signs of skin aging caused by dietary indiscretions such as excess sugar consumption, which causes skin glycation.

UV damage, smoke and other pollutants can wreak havoc on your skin, accelerating the aging process and damaging cells.
