  1. Make Your Own Herbal Dead Sea Salt Scrub        Add Comments
    Dead sea salt contains a higher percentage of nourishing minerals such as magnesium, potassium and calcium chloride than normal sea salt does, which is why it is so good for you and many people like to take advantage of these benefits to make their own herbal dead sea salt scrub. All you need to do is to add a large handful of dry, fragrant rose petals or herbs to a mortar and grind them with a pestle. Then add 3 tablespoons of dead sea salt and grind them as well. Add 4 tablespoons of water and then ½ teaspoon of olive oil for moisturising and mix them well. Massage the mixture onto your body's skin, leave it for 10-15 minutes and then rinse it off in the shower.
  2. Use Epsom Salt To Clean Your Face & Skin        Add Comments
    It is important to look after your skin properly and making sure that you clean your face each night is a crucial step that you should not miss just because you are busy. You can use epsom salts in order to help ensure that you face and skin is really clean and smooth. Simply mix ½ teaspoon epsom salt and your normal skin cleansing lotion together, massage this mixture into your skin and then rinse it off with cold water.
  3. Exfoliate Your Skin With A Sea Salt Scrub        Add Comments
    In order to look after your skin and remove all of the dead skin cells you should use a good sea salt scrub which will exfoliate your skin properly and leave it feeling soft, smooth and glowing. Exfoliating is a good idea throughout the year but it is especially important in summer because your skin is exposed to the elements much more.
  4. Moisturise Your Skin After A Salt Scrub        1 Comments
    Salt scrubs work best if you have oily skin because they can be slightly dehydrating and tend to remove the natural oils from your skin. If you have relatively dry skin then this effect can be overcome and balanced out by using the salt scrub mixed together with a moisturising oil, such as olive oil or apricot kernel oil.
  5. Helpful Tip With Using Sea Salt Body Scrub        Add Comments
    If you want to use ordinary sea salt as your body scrub then you can do so but you should remove the sharp edges from the salt first. A great tip for smoothing off the rough edges of the sea salt at home is to put it into a coffee grinder or food processor before using it as a body scrub.
  6. Best Place To Get Salt Body Scrubs        Add Comments
    You can generally purchase salt scrubs at most health spas, pharmacies and other retail health stores. Also many people want to be able to save money by making their own salt body scrubs at home and you can easily do this if you follow this simply sea salt scrub recipe.
  7. Best Way To Apply A Salt Scrub To Your Body        Add Comments
    When applying a salt scrub to your body it is always best if you make sure that your skin is slightly wet first because this makes it easier to apply and scrub properly. Also you should take great care to avoid any cuts or abrasions that you may have on your skin because if you get salt in them it will sting a lot.
  8. Sea Salt Scrub Recipe You Can Make At Home        Add Comments
    If you want to make an easy sea salt scrub at home then start by adding ½ cup of baby oil and 1 cup of sea salt to a bowl and mixing it together. If the mixture is too dry then simply add a dash of water to the mixture. You can use whatever type of salt that you like, however, it is advantageous to use a few different types of salt so that the exfoliation process can make the most of the differing sizes, shapes and textures of the salts. Finally add a small amount of your favourite essential oil, such as vanilla, citrus, lavender or rosewater, for a truly wonderful aromatherapy body scrub that you can use at any time.
  9. Precaution To Take When Making Your Own Salt Scrub        Add Comments
    When you are making you own salt scrub at home you should take a few precautions first to ensure that it is safe to use on your skin. For instance when adding essential oils or fragrances to your salt scrub be aware that some of them may cause skin irritation to some people. You should always first test a small amount of the scented oil on a patch of skin and see if your skin has any reaction to the oil after 30 or 40 minutes.
