The magic of salt!
In winter our feet, knees and elbows in particular suffer, as they are constantly wrapped up, leaving the skin hardly any chance to breathe properly. When warm clothing gets rubbed against the skin it can leave the surface cracked and dry. Therefore, a pedicure for the feet and some type of exfoliation for the body is needed.
For a simple but very effective exfoliation, it is best to use coarse Sea or Himalayan Salt with a few spoonsful of olive oil. Mix both together so that a thick porridge consistency is created. You can also use Almond oil or Moringa oil as sweet alternative. This simple concoction makes the skin especially soft and smells wonderful on top of that! Massage from neck to feet in circular motions paying particular attention to rough areas like elbows, knees and feet, and then rinse with plenty of lukewarm water. For a more refreshing fragrance, if you like, you can also add a splash of orange juice to the salt-oil mix, because vitamin C also stimulates the skin's functions.
Perhaps beating cellulite is wishful thinking, however, instead of drinking your coffee, when it is combined with salt it helps with those problem areas, as salt and caffeine help flush out stored water and boost fat burning. Try mixing one-part coffee powder and one-part Sea/Himalayan Salt with two parts of a nourishing black soap shower gel, to pamper your skin. In no time, your skin will be rosy and spring-fresh ready for your shorts and dresses.
Sea or Himalayan salt baths for sensitive-skinned people
If you have sensitive skin but would still like a scrub, no problem! You can soak in the tub and do something for your figure and nerves endings at the same time: A sea salt bath strengthens the skin structure by extracting water from the connective tissue, found as moisture in the horny layer (or stratum corneum) which is outermost layer of the epidermis. The salt has the effect of beautifully plumping up the skin, and increasing the metabolism. In addition, the anti-stress mineral magnesium penetrates the body and provides a wonderful feeling of relaxation. Afterwards cream from head to toe to with one of our signature hair and body butters, guaranteed to leave your skin feeling hydrated and smooth.
