Salt; it’s one of those things that we take for granted as seasoning for our fish and chips, but it actually has many, many benefits for the body both inside and out. There are lots of products from across the ranges that we sell which include vital ingredients, but today we’ve got five of our favourites to show you how versatile and essential salt is for a healthy body.
Perhaps the most obvious use for salt in a beauty context is as a scrub for clearing dead skin cells and invigorating your circulation. This scrub from Elemis uses lime and ginger to polish the skin, boost the metabolism and improve skin absporption, giving a properly prepared canvas for applying moisture to the skin. It’s perfect for use on elbows, knees and heels, where hard skin can accumulate.
This tint from Dermalogica is available in Light, Medium and Dark varieties, allowing a spectrum of skin tones to use it and they can also be blended for a more personalised shade. It’s a lightly-tinted moisturiser which gives an all-day wash of colour, is suitable for all skin types and offers SPF20 protection from the sun. It’s a rich source of minerals and salts that protect tissues against oxidative stress.
This foaming bath preparation contains a number of ingredients including sea salt, birch, juniper, clove, alpine lavender, wild thyme and blue chamomile, which combine to create a soothing soak for tired, overworked muscles. The aroma helps to clear the head and reficus the mind while the combination of ingredients helps to ease period pains, boost circulation, ease swelling and stiffness and is great for arthritis and rheumatism.
This cleanser from Elemis is designed to re-energise lacklustre skin and uses electrolytes from sea salt to add much-needed elements back into your complexion. The deep cleansing action helps reduce surface oils and impurities, whilst helping to rebalance the skin. It leaves the complexion looking fresh, energised and beautifully revived.
The sea salt in this night cream is utilised in a highly scientific way – the sea salt, minerals and electrolytes help facilitate the bio-electric exchange reaction in zinc and copper which encourages optimum cell health and vitality. Which means, in much simple terms, that the ingredients work together to give you healthier looking skin and cells which regenerate more effectively!
