Salt scrubs are a fantastic way to detox your skin all while exfoliating and removing dead skin; most salt scrubs use sea salts, which are natural purifiers that remove the toxins that block the pores of the skin. Salt scrubs help the skin breath easier, promotes better circulation, tightens the skin and improves skin texture. We wanted to talk about salt scrubs today, because like everything, not all scrubs are created equal!
Dead Sea Salts (like the ones we use in our soak and soon face scrub) have different trace minerals, which include calcium, magnesium, potassium, copper and iron which help to promote circulation, reduce the inflammatory response, and act as a detoxifying agent and general muscle relaxant. The amniotic fluid that we were born in is the same mineral composition as the ocean, so when you impart those minerals onto the surface of the skin, there is a very synergistic exchange that promotes healing and conditioning of the skin.
Epsom Salts are made up of only magnesium, so they make a wonderful muscle relaxant. You will not get the other benefits from all of the other minerals found in Sea Salts. Epsom Salts can also tend to feel slimier when dissolved in water, and they will not make your skin nearly as soft and supple as Dead Sea Salts will!
