3 health benefits from using salt scrubs

Sea salts and Epsom salts both commonly used in the beauty industry, contain minerals that can help to enhance the skin. The magnesium in Epsom salts can reduce inflammation, while sulfates flush out toxins, according to the Epsom Salt Council.

Exfoliation

Gently rubbing the skin in circular motions with a salt scrub removes dead skin cells in a process known as exfoliation. Dead skin cells harden with age. .

This layer of skin will become thicker and thicker until it is finally removed. Layers of dead skin cells can make the skin look dry and flaky; exfoliation with a salt scrub reveals the moist, shiny skin hidden underneath.

Invigoration

The abrasive action associated with salt scrubs invigorates the skin and helps to improve circulation. Improved circulation gives skin a natural glow. 

Regeneration

Exfoliating with a salt scrub not only removes dead skin cells and increases circulation, but it also encourages regeneration.Skin regeneration also reduces skin discoloration, evening out skin tone and improving texture.
