Benefits of Epsom Salt for Skin
Epsom salt is amazing for skin! It has a slight abrasive texture that makes it able to gently slough off dead cells from skin. Epsom salt also promotes blood circulation which enables nutrients to flow to all skin cells. If you want to reduce puffiness or fluid retention, you can also use Epsom salt and it works great!
Did you know that Epsom salt also has detoxifying properties? Yes, that’s right! It deeply cleanses pores and drives out all kinds of gunk stuck beneath your skin’s surface.
What’s more is that Epsom salt is rich in magnesium, a mineral that is best absorbed into the body through the skin!
Okay, without further ado, let’s check out this easy Epsom salt scrub recipe, shall we?!
