Epsom Salt – How can you use it for soft skin
Epsom salt is a magnesium sulfate, so it is a mineral produce entirely by nature. Due to the fact that it is rich in magnesium and sulfur, Epsom salt has multiple benefits for your body.
So besides using it only for long and relaxing baths you also my try using it for all others purposes, like detox your liver or improving the quality of your skin or hair.
Here are a few of the multiple uses of Epsom salt:
- Exfoliating the skin: simple massage the Epsom salt on wet skin and take a sower to rinse it off;
- Face cleansing: mix ½ teaspoon of Epsom salt with the cleansing gel you usually use – massage your face and then rinse it off with warm water;
- Soaking the feet: in a large bowl of water or a basin throw ½ cup Epsom salt and soak your feet – it will help eliminate bad odors and soften rough skin;
- Face mask: mix one egg with a tablespoon cognac, ¼ cup of powdered milk and ½ teaspoon Epsom salt. Apply the mask on wet face.
- Remove excess sebum from hair: in ½ cup of shampoo for oily hair, add 9-10 teaspoons of Epsom salt. Add on dry hair a tablespoon of this mixture and then rinse it off with cold water. Apply some apple cider vinegar or lemon juice on your hair and leave it for 5-10 minute. Then rinse it off.
I only described 5 of the multiple ways this miracle natural ingredient can help improve your life. But there are so much more and I will only name a few of them: mosquito bites, splinter remover, hair spray based on Epsom salt, pedicure, acne, sunburns, helps you with infections or constipation, and I could go on and on.
The idea is to try it: I did especially for my skin and I can say that my skin looks much more brighter, softer and hydrated, so thank you nature for creating it!
