1. Salt Scrub
Just like Sugar, salt is also a great substitute for a homemade scrub which is easy on the pocket as well as does wonders for your skin. Salt is said to be a gentle and natural exfoliator which get rids of dry and dead skin with ease. You can apply it in a thick paste form when mixed with coconut oil or olive oil. Add few drops of your favourite essential oil and it would leave you with a long lasting fragrance. Spread the mix with your hands and then scrub it over with a loofah.
2. Salt Face Mask
Salt can even be used in creating a face mask. Use it with honey and you would be able to prevent acne and breakouts. Both of these ingredients have anti-inflammatory properties. Add almost two teaspoons of salt and mix it with four teaspoons of honey, until the paste becomes spreadable. You can apply the paste on your face and neck, and wash it off with warm water after 10-15 minutes.
3. Shoo The Puffiness Away
Puffy eyes can instantly make you look tired and sick, which we definitely don’t want to have. Use salt and mix it in warm water, and apply the mix with the help of cotton. Keep the cotton on for the 10-15 minutes and you would not have any more puffiness.
4. Facial Toner
Salt is considered to be helpful in balancing the production of oil on the face as well as cleansing the pores. This in turns, helps in preventing acne and breakouts which are an amazing thing for people with sensitive and acne prone skin. Mix a tablespoon of salt into almost 100 mL of warm water.
5. Bath Soak
Adding salt to your warm bath water is said to provide a relaxing bath which is much needed after a long day of work. It absorbs toxin, dirt and also helps in deeply cleansing the skin. It also hydrates your skin which is a win-win situation for all of us.
All these ways and methods can be easily skimmed in your daily or weekly skin care routine. So what are you waiting for?
