As a busy mom I am always looking for ways to rub the detritus of the day off of my body and also to relax. The benefits of salts scrubs are many and varied but what they are most famous for is making your skin look pinker and younger. This is because the salt has an exfoliating effect that helps remove dead skin cells from the complexion. It is those dead skin cells that make your skin look flaky and dull. Even better the effect of this entire rubbing is that it brings blood to the surface of the skin. This gives you a glowing complexion and a fresher, more youthful appearance in general.
A salt scrub can be created from any type of bath salt but it is most effective when bath salts from the Dead Sea or from Manitou Lake in Canada are used. This is because these types of salts are very high in minerals. You can buy these commercially or you can make your own quite easily.
The way to make your own salt scrub is to make a paste out of water and Dead Sea Salts or some type of scented or unscented oil and Dead Sea salts. You then can take this paste and rub it directly on the skin with a polishing motion. For best results make stroking motions away from the heart and stroke towards. This helps circulatory and vascular systems to dispose of toxins in your body's tissues more efficiently thus contributing to your overall health.
The benefits of salt scrubs also include helping your skin regenerate. There is probably no better way to give yourself a cheap at home facial that is just as effective as the kind of treatment that you would get at a beauty salon.
Giving your skin a salt scrub regular can also help strengthen and firm skin tissues. This is because the blood that is sped to the surface of the skin also helps repair any cells that may be discontinuous and causing wrinkles in the face. The fluids that are also brought to the surface of the skin through this type of skin polishing with salt can also plump up the look of existing wrinkles.
There are all kinds of different salt scrubs, mostly made from Dead Sea salts available in drug stores or online but you can make your own using a small bit of massage oil or essential oil. To make your own all you need to do is combine about 250 grams of sea salt with ten milliliters of scented massage oil. Make sure that when you buy the raw salts that you are buying the fine grains, not the larger crystals that are meant for dissolving in the bath. Then all you need to do is get in the bath and polish your cares away.
