Anyone who suffers from acne, psoriasis or eczema knows how uncomfortable skin conditions can be. But did you know that Himalayan salt can help ease your discomfort, and in some cases even completely cure skin ailments?
And it’s not just conditions like acne or eczema, Himalayan salt can even help ease insect bites, blisters, skin wounds, irritations caused by allergies and can even cure foot fungus.
So How Can You Use Himalayan Salt to Ease Skin Conditions?
When you have a salt water bath, also called a brine bath, the minerals and trace elements in the salt penetrate your skin in the form of negative ions. The ions encourage natural cell growth and rejuvenation in your living cells and bio-energetic weak points become balanced, allowing your body to heal itself.
A brine bath will also leech away toxins within your body, in fact the detoxifying effects of a 30 minute brine bath is comparable to a 3 day fast!
To get the full effect of the brine, avoid using any soaps or oils during your bath. There’s no need to rinse with fresh water after the bath either, simply dry off with a towel as normal.
If you suffer from specific areas of discomfort, instead of a whole body bath, you can use a brine solution to deal with your problem areas.
* For foot fungi such as Athlete’s foot, place you feet in a brine solution for 20 minutes.
* For facial acne, wash your face with brine solution twice a day.
* For skin rashes, psoriasis and eczema, rub brine directly onto the affected area and let it air dry.
Himalayan Salt Soap
Using a Himalayan salt soap bar as part of your daily routine is a great way to ease skin ailments. As with the brine bath, the salt in the soap bar leeches out toxins in your body, while your body absorbs all the beneficial minerals and trace elements found in Himalayan salt.
Himalayan salt soap is the ideal option for maintaining balance after a brine soak, or for those who don’t have access to a bathtub.
Simply cover the soap bar in a damp cloth and rub it over your skin, paying particular attention to any problem areas.
