The Salt scrub is made to replenish tired dry skin. The ingredients are specifically selected to nourish dry skin.
The Epsom salts break down into magnesium and sulfate in water and get into your skin helping to relieve stress and aches. Epsom salts are also used to relive sore muscles.
The pink Himalayan sea salt is chock full of minerals. This can breathe life into tired skin. Exfoliating with salt will help remove dead skin cells. These cells harden with age. The longer they are on the skin, the harder they get, and become thick if not removed. Layers of dead cells make skin look flaky. To exfoliate with a salt scrub is to reveal moist shiny skin. The abrasive action invigorates the skin and helps to improve circulation. Improved circulation gives skin a natural glow.
The salt helps remove bacteria and unclog pores. Salt has antiseptic qualities. when applied to skin, it may help kill bacteria and reduce inflammation. Salt can also assist in easing itching and pain from skin disease.
The sunflower oil will assist in replenishing the skin as well. It contains nutrients and antioxidants. The emollient oil retains the skin’s natural moisture.
Sloughing away dead skin cells, encourages regeneration of the skin and actually promotes the growth of new cells. The regeneration process tightens the skin, giving it a firmer, younger appearance. Skin regeneration reduces discoloration, evening out skin tone and improving texture.
The crushed chamomile is wild harvested from Alaska, adds calmness and smells amazing. The crushed lavender is a soothing agent. Lastly we add the lavender and chamomile oils to balance this scrub out and give you a spa experience.
