You’ll Never Believe What Adding Salt to Your Beauty Products Can Do to Your Hair and Skin
We use salt every day in the preparation of almost every recipe. However, not many people know that salt can be used for treating numerous health issues.
Another use that salt has it’s a cosmetic one; adding some salt to your beauty products will make your hair and skin healthier and better-looking.
For instance, two or three tablespoons of salt added to your shampoo will make your hair less greasy. You will notice the difference after only a few uses.
Note: the salt used in the following recipe is sea salt. The table salt we use has no health or medical properties whatsoever.
Combine a cup of coconut oil (make sure it is organic and virgin) with two teaspoons of rough sea salt. Mix well and scrub your body with this mixture while in the shower.
Salt can solve the problems with the rough skin on your feet. Combine a cup of olive oil with two tablespoons of sea salt. Apply the mixture on the feet and rub. After two or three treatments, the skin will be noticeably smoother.
Natural remedy for injuries
Despite the negative connotation of the idiom ‘To rub salt into the wound’, salt is in fact very efficient in the healing of various injuries, including burns and cuts. It is a fact that after applying salt, you will feel pain at first, but once this pain passes, salt will help the wound heal faster.
Add two teaspoons of salt in a glass of water and stir until it is fully dissolved. Apply the salty liquid on the affected area to disinfect the wound. The pain you feel is actually a sign that this mixture is efficient.
Salt against headaches
If you suffer from regular headaches, add a teaspoon of salt in a glass of water. The pain will reduce or completely disappear in about 15-20 minutes.
Warning: Salt has a negative effect on high blood pressure, i.e. if you suffer from high blood pressure, you should not consume large amounts of salt.
