Minimum time 60 minutes. Many salts, such as magnesium sulphate, contain minerals that can reduce inflammation. When mixed with oils, as part of a scrub treatment, salt can replenish tired and dry skin.
An exfoliating salt scrub massage also removes dead skin cells which can otherwise become hard. If left untreated, dead cells make the skin stiff and crusty. Exfoliation removes dry, flaky, dead skin and reveals the supple soft skin beneath. It cleanses the pores of the dirt
and bacteria that can build up over time. Salt has anti-bacterial qualities, so it is helpful in
maintaining bacteria-free skin and preventing itchiness. The same abrasive friction between the salt and skin which causes exfoliation, also encourages the circulation of blood. That is what gives the skin an attractive and rosy post-scrub glow.
This process of removing dead skin and dirt also encourages the regeneration of new skin cells. The body is stimulated to produce new healthy skin cells which tighten the skin and make it look younger and firmer. A salt scrub massage combines all these benefits to leave your skin cleaner, softer, firmer, rosier and looking younger. Do you need any more reasons?
