Why your skin needs salt water - the science

It’s not just trendy, it’s true. The sea is magic. A deep biological response occurs in our brains when we’re near water that causes a flood of neurochemicals that promote wellness and relaxation, plus it’s also crazy beneficial for your skin, and here’s how...

Top 6 reasons why your skin needs Salt Water


1. Sea salt is packed with healing minerals, like magnesium, calcium and potassium that help absorb toxins and promote skin repair, especially when teamed up with a little sun.


2. Magnesium is anti-microbial and anti-inflammatory and is effective in tackling acne.


3. Sea salt, aside from being a great physical exfoliant, like in our Tough Love Body Scrub with Cornish sea salt + olive stone powder, helps open pores for a deeper clean


4. It boosts circulation and promotes healthy cell turnover = radiance = yes please.


5. It’s an amazing scalp treatment, boosting circulation and keeping fungal growth at bay, as well as absorbing excess oil.


6. It can help dry skin conditions over time, such as eczema and psoriasis, but in my experience you’ve got to listen to your body in this one - salt in broken skin can be miserable, but if you can get through the pain the healing will come.
