There is no surprise that people who spend time at the beach notice an improvement in their skin. Sea salt, an ever-present component at any ocean or sea beach, can do wonders to help heal, cleanse, and restore the skin. Sea salt contains many minerals and nutrients that can be beneficial for the skin. Let’s find out more about sea salt, how to use it, and its effects on the skin.
What is Sea Salt
When seawater evaporates, it leaves behind sea salt. Sea salt can be used as a seasoning in foods, cooking, preserving foods, and skincare. Sea salt is very different from regular table salt because it contains numerous skin healing minerals like magnesium, calcium, and potassium.
Our bodies contain the same concentration of nutrients and minerals as seawater, which is why sea salt is so helpful in balancing, protecting, and restoring the skin. Here are some of the ways sea salt can be beneficial for your skin:
Sea salt helps to deep clean the pores and balance oil production. This helps prevent acne and breakouts causing bacteria from forming in the pores. The deep cleaning also helps retain moisture from within, making the skin fresh and supple.
Sea salt is a great natural exfoliator. It can blast away dead skin cells while also nourishing the skin with minerals and helping restore hydration. Deep exfoliation promotes new healthy skin production and improves texture. Freshly exfoliated skin is also better at absorbing serums and moisturizers, so it’s a step that individuals should not skip.
Sea salt cleanses and exfoliates the skin and provides hydration to the deeper layers of the skin. Sea salt also zaps excess oils from the skin’s pores and helps to maintain moisture balance in the skin.
Sea salt is often used to help decrease the skin’s dryness and inflammation. And soaking the skin in sea saltwater could help provide relief from redness and irritation. Sea salt could also be a helpful tool in dealing with eczema. The National Eczema Foundation recommends using sea salt soaks to relieve red and itchy skin associated with the condition.
