The benefits of Sea Salt for Hair
Every girl raves about those effortless, bouncy beach waves hairstyle that makes you look like you have just landed from a tropical paradise.

Sea Salt is an amazing all-natural hair volumiser. Styling your hair with a couple of spritzes of this concoction will boost the texture of your hair and enhance natural curls.
If you need a hair clarifying treatment that will help you to get rid of products build-ups Sea Salt may be the answer.

Salt will act like a gentle scalp scrub removing all the residues that coat your roots making your hair look dull and weighed down. This hair detox treatment might just be the key to getting rid of dandruff and greasy hair for good, thus restoring shine and volume.
The benefits of Sea Salt for Skin Care
Sea Salt has amazing healing benefits plus it is rich in minerals, so it turns out to be an excellent ingredient to incorporate into your skincare routine, especially for oily acne-prone skin. In fact, Sea Salt – thanks to its antibacterial proprieties – is an incredibly powerful natural acne medication that works by deeply cleansing the pores and killing bacteria. Splashing your face with some salt water can be a helpful trick to maintain a clear fresh complexion, without splurging on expensive and harmful chemical-based anti-acne preparations.
The Benefits of Sea Salt for Body Care
Sea Salt scrubs are the most easy-peasy way to add salt to your body care routine. The reason for this is the small particles of salt work amazingly in rubbing off the dead skin cells without being harsh and painful. Instead of indulging in commercial exfoliators, it’s easy to make your own by mixing some Sea Salt (both coarse and fine) with some vegetable organic oil. If you like to add some scent, why not add a few drops of your favourite essential oils for a relaxing aromatherapy Home Spa treatment.
