Exfoliating your skin is an important part of your beauty routine, and to maintaining a natural glow. Two of the best, natural products include dead Sea and Himalayan salts. These all-natural ingredients found in some of the most incredible locations around the world are excellent options to help exfoliate your skin.
What is Dead Sea Salt?
Dead Sea salt is a mixture of salt and other minerals from the Dead Sea, which is located between Israel and Jordan. Some of the minerals found in the salts include:
The rich seawater has a long, rich history, including regular rendezvous with Cleopatra. Egypt’s most well-known Queen, lover of Caesar, and the wife of Mark Anthony used[CD1] Dead Sea salt exclusively in her beauty routine.
What is Himalayan Salt?
Himalayan salt is a pretty pink colour and is mined from the red-brick hills [CD2] in Khewra, Pakistan’s Punjab region, or about two hours from Islamabad. The salt was formed over 600 million years ago. People in the area have been mining the salt since at least the 1200s. Consumers use the pretty pink rock in everything from foods to facials and other spa treatment.
Exfoliate Your Skin
To keep healthy, glowing skin, you need to remove the dead skin cells that clog pores and trap in oils and dirt. The best way to achieve this is through exfoliation. You can do this mechanically or chemically. The preferred method is mechanical. Many consumers use a brush or sponge. But another excellent option is an exfoliating scrub.
Why Exfoliate Your Skin with the Dead Sea & Himalayan Salts?
Well, if Cleopatra wasn’t a selling point, the rich blend of minerals or natural skincare should be another reason to consider adding these ingredients to your beauty routine. Chemical peels are a good choice for some consumers that helps the skin naturally shed dead cells. Also, beta-hydroxy acids work well for people prone to acne outbreaks, but they can be too harsh on the skin for many people.
The salts have a grainy texture and plenty of calcium and sodium to remove[CD3] dead skin cells and rejuvenate the skin. It’s also a mechanical form of exfoliation that works best for consumers with dry and oily skin types. If you have sensitive skin, you may still be able to exfoliate with the salts by limiting how often you use them.
