Cherished by Hippocrates, the ancient Greeks, the Japanese and Cleopatra for its health and beauty benefits, mineral-rich salt baths are a time-honored way to relax, beautify and invigorate. Sea salt contains natural trace minerals that have a wide range of health benefits—one study even found that the magnesium in salt can actually help lower levels of cortisol. A tranquil bath is the perfect way to reap these relaxing benefits.
Calming and sedative: Sea salt contains minerals such as magnesium, zinc, calcium and bromine which act to sedate and calm your nervous system.
Moisturizing: Unrefined sea salt has the ability to attract and hold water. It increases the hydration level on the dermal levels of the skin by re-balancing the distribution of naturally occurring minerals in the cells, thereby improving and strengthening the skin barrier.
Anti-aging: The minerals in sea salt are critical for communication between the cells. Replenishing the skin with these trace elements can help the cell-to-cell signaling process that slows down with age, preventing dullness and irritation.
Good for inflammatory skin conditions: Sea salt baths are effective in reducing inflammatory skin conditions such as eczema, psoriasis and redness in general because of their balancing effects.
Exfoliating: Salt acts as a natural skin exfoliator, loosening and removing dead surface skin.
