The Benefits Of Salt Water... At Home
Spending your day at the beach is a great way to relax your mind and unwind. But did you know that the seawater is rich in minerals and can work wonders for your skin and hair as well? The salty seawater is deemed to heal and restore your skin’s health. If you can’t make it to the beach as often as you’d like, here are some simple ways to get the benefits of “Vitamin Sea” at home.
1. For Your Body and Hair
At the beach - A 15-minute dip in the sea is enough to reap the benefits of salt water, which is naturally rich in trace elements and mineral salts - sodium chloride, potassium, magnesium, and calcium.
At home - Adding sea salt to your bath will help ease aches and pains. You can also blend it with essential oils to get a wonderfully softening body scrub. Plus you can always spray a solution on your hair for a sexy, windswept look!
2. For Improving Circulation
At the beach - It's our feet that first feel sand's beneficial effects. Having spent all year squeezed into shoes, our feet love sand's natural exfoliating effect, while strolling along a beach boosts our circulation and tones up our legs.
At home - Take some sand back home with you (or find a local garden centre) and give yourself a natural sand scrub. Grab a handful of sand, add a bit of water, and massage your body, working from your feet upwards. You can also use it for a homemade manicure - lightly massage it onto your nails to make them look polished and white.
3. For Nourishing Your Skin
At the beach – The different marine life are a super-rich source of minerals. Most plants are not just packed with nutrients and minerals that nourish skin and stimulate its cells, they also boost skin renewal.
At home - Invest in a face and body treatment that harnesses the power of the rich marine life so your skin can benefit from its revitalising goodness. You can try the Anti-Blemish Pure-Clay Face Mask by L’Oréal. The pure clay mask is enriched with Laminaria Saccharina extracts, a marine algae known for its anti-acne properties. The creamy texture of the anti-blemish mask penetrates deep into the skin to unclog pores and remove excess oil, leaving the skin pure and fresh without drying it out.
The fresh ocean breeze and the sand beneath your feet provide a great escape from your mundane, everyday life. A short trip to the beach can heal not just your mind but also your body. Incorporate these salt water remedies in your weekly routine and enjoy the benefits saltwater has to offer.
