Minerals Bath Salts
When used in their natural, pure form, Salts contain many beneficial minerals and nutrients that keep your skin smooth, soft, and supple.
Some of the minerals found in bath salts include magnesium, potassium, calcium, bromide, and of course, sodium. These minerals are easily absorbed into our pores and are known to cleanse and purify our skin on a molecular level, improving your skin’s radiance, tone, and texture.
Magnesium helps us fight stress and combat fatigue; calcium keeps water retention in check, promotes healthy bones and can help stave off osteoporosis; potassium balances moisture levels in the skin; bromide soothes tired, sore muscles; sodium plays a significant role in managing the balance of lymphatic fluid in our bodies.
The result? Bath salts benefit not only our skin, but our entire bodies – from the inside out.
Another benefit of bath salts is that they help detoxify our skin. Warm water opens our pores, allowing the minerals in your bath salts to deeply cleanse our skin.
Bathing in a solution of warm water and bath salts will work to draw out impurities, pollution, oil and dirt from the skin.
Bath salts can even bring you the added benefit of looking younger – regular use of bath salts and bathing has been shown to decrease the appearance of fine lines by plumping the skin and balancing moisture.
The benefits of bath salts extend way beyond your time in the tub – after your bath, you will feel calm, relaxed, and happy.
Bath salts infused with essential oils such as lavender or chamomile will soothe you and prepare you for a good night’s sleep;
If you take your bath first thing in the morning, bath salts infused with citrus or green tea essential oils will perk you up, so you can start the day with focus and energy.
How to prepare your Bath
For a bath, fill the tub about halfway to the desired level.Take a handful of bath salts and pour them into the bath by holding your hand under the faucet, allowing the bath salts to fall with the water into the tub.
While pouring the bath salts into the bath, their fragrance will be released into the steam, allowing for a very fragrant bath. Depending on their size, bath salts will dissolve quickly once in contact with hot water.
Once you have poured one to two handfuls of bath salts into your bath, you’re ready to relax!
Be sure to stir the bath salts into the water and circulate them well, so the fragrances are released into the steam.
