How Salt Soaks can help problem skin

Sometimes the simplest of natural ingredients are the most effective when it comes to treating sensitive and problem skin.

Salt has long been famed for its intensely therapeutic skin benefits – with Himalayan, Dead Sea and Epsom Salts particularly effective at treating the likes of eczema, psoriasis and acne.

Here’s how it works…

Deeply Detoxifying

The high mineral content draws out toxins from deep within the skin – purifying and preventing blemishes and flares.


Spreading bacteria is what turns one spot into a breakout and a small patch of eczema into an angry, recurring rash.

Salt inhibits the growth of bacteria, and so helps skin to heal quickly and stay calm and clear.


Salt can increase the skin’s moisture levels by encouraging cells to hold on to water.

As a result, regular use can help alleviate dry or cracked skin.


Eczema, psoriasis and acne redden and inflame when aggravated.

The anti-inflammatory properties of Salt help combat this, and can also relieve tight muscles and tired joints.

For optimum results, add a handful of natural salts to a lukewarm bath, and soak for 10-15 minutes.

Follow with our intensively hydrating Comfrey & Calendula Calming Body Cream for the ultimate therapeutic treatment.
