Epsom Bath Salts – Bath Salt
Comprised of the minerals magnesium and sulfate, Epsom salt is a natural exfoliant and anti-inflammation remedy that can be used to treat dry skin, sore muscles, small wounds and even to fight illness. It can also be added to any bath or foot soak to create a luxurious at-home spa experience. These budget-friendly, hassle-free tips from the Epsom Salt Council show how Epsom salt can keep you feeling healthy and beautiful in the comfort of your own home.
Making Epsom salt body-soaks a regular part of your weekly routine can help keep you feeling rejuvenated and your skin hydrated and healthy. Add two cups of Epsom salt to a bathtub of hot water and soak for at least 40 minutes. Treat yourself to a soak three times weekly for best results. The first 20 minutes are said to help your body remove the toxins, while the second 20 minutes are for absorbing the minerals in the water.
