Himalayan salt is a staple in the kitchen, but did you know this incredible product can also be used for natural beauty, too? Himalayan pink salt is one of the purest salts on earth, being jam-packed with over 84+ essential minerals. As a result, the benefits of Himalayan salt can extend right through to our skin, hair and bodies! From salt scrubs to facial toner, keep reading for 4 ways to use Himalayan salt for natural beauty remedies below.
Himalayan salt scrub
Regularly exfoliating our skin helps to remove dead skin cells and reduce fine lines and wrinkles, leaving our skin feeling soft and smooth. And, as Himalayan salt is enriched with an abundance of natural minerals, it’s the perfect ingredient for a natural, nourishing salt scrub.
Himalayan salt scrubs promote youthful, glowing skin by stimulating our blood circulation. Plus, they’re super easy to create at home with just a few natural products. Simply combine pure Himalayan salt with fractionated coconut oil and a couple of drops of essential oils (we love Frankincense, geranium and grapefruit).
Himalayan salt soak
Soaking in a Himalayan salt bath is thought to naturally detox and recharge our bodies. When we soak in a Himalayan salt bath, the minerals from the salt are absorbed into our bloodstream while toxins are removed through the process of osmosis. A Himalayan salt bath may also help to reduce inflammation in our bodies and balance the PH levels of our skin. Himalayan salt baths are highly detoxifying, so 20 minutes in the tub is more than enough to experience the benefits!
Himalayan salt facial tonerUsing a facial toner each day can help to nourish our skin, minimise pores and even reduce acne. Himalayan salt is a natural astringent and encourages our pores to tighten – resulting in healthy, radiant skin. Himalayan salt also has the ability to retain water, giving it a moisturising effect. To make your own Himalayan salt facial toner, you’ll need:
- ½ teaspoon of Himalayan salt
- 1 teaspoon of fractionated coconut oil (to prevent drying)
- 2 drops of Lemon essential oil
- ½ cup distilled water
Simply mix the ingredients well in a spray bottle, and spritz over the face directly after cleansing.
Himalayan salt deodorantMany deodorants contain harmful chemicals like parabens and aluminium. So, why not make your own natural deodorant using Himalayan salt? Natural deodorant is much kinder to our skin and helps us reduce the amount of toxins our bodies are exposed to. Himalayan salt is also naturally antibacterial, which means it can absorb and neutralise any unpleasant odours associated with sweat. Making natural deodorant using Himalayan salt is easy. You’ll need:
- 2 x teaspoons Himalayan salt
- 30 ml x Witch Hazel
- 90 ml x distilled water
- ½ teaspoon x baking soda
- 10 x drops Lemon essential oil
Mix all ingredients together in a spray bottle and use daily as needed. As you can see, the benefits of Himalayan salt extend far beyond the kitchen, so be inspired by these natural beauty remedies using Himalayan salt!
