Salt Scrubs for Glowing Skin

sea salt scrub

 

The foundation of a healthy lifestyle is maintaining balanced pH levels in the body, which we see expressed through our skin. Through our interactions with the external world, our bodies are exposed to both natural and unnatural elements that can have harmful effects when the body’s pH levels become overly acidic or alkaline.

There are many ways to balance the body’s pH levels, some more pampering than others. Soaking in the sea is one of the oldest methods used. Historically, Hippocrates, an ancient Greek physician, reputed the healing properties of the sea as magical.

Sea salt is just one of many types of mineral salts. Solar evaporated sea salt is full of therapeutic minerals like potassium, sodium, calcium and magnesium. These salts are easily absorbed through the skin, helping to re-mineralise the body. They help to improve the texture and tone of the skin, leaving it feeling silky soft. They also help with muscle and tension relief.

Additional benefits of sea salt scrubs are:

  1. Strengthens the immune system.
  2. Improves skin tone and texture.
  3. Gives your skin a healthy glow.
  4. Improves blood circulation.
  5. Kills bacteria and removes inflammation.
  6. Removes dead skin through exfoliation.
  7. Encourages regeneration of skin by removing dead skin, this regeneration process tightens the skin giving it a firmer and younger looking appearance.
  8. Helps dry skin.
  9. Removes lactic acid (great for soaking in after work outs).
  10. Re-mineralization of the body.

How to make a salt scrub:

Combat dryness and get glowing, soft skin instantly with this moisture-rich, exfoliating body scrub. This easy home spa treatment also stimulates the circulation, which can ease aches and pains, and can help reduce cellulite while also have a toning effect.

In a bowl, combine equal parts of our Tonic Bathsalts or Detox Bathsalts and Tonic Bath, Body & Massage Oil to create a paste.  While standing in the shower massage the exfoliating scrub over elbows, arms, hands and legs – wherever you need to stimulate circulation, tone, remove dry skin and moisturize.  Shower off and be amazed at how velvety soft your skin feels!  For added moisture, apply  Tonic Bath, Body & Massage Oil afterwards instead of lotion.

The minerals, vitamins and botanical extracts found in our fresh, organic bodycare products pack a powerful punch and are ultra nourishing.  Our Tonic products contain essential oils which are also natural cold and flu fighters, are beneficial for the respiratory system, and which are energizing and uplifting.  These are also all great added benefits during the winter cold and flu season!

*Caution: when using scrub in the shower, do not use on bottoms of feet, and be cautious about not spilling oil or scrub paste onto shower floor as it can be slippery.  We love this paste as a foot scrub, but when using it that way, apply it while your feet are in a footbath, rather than in a shower, so you don’t risk slipping.
