Our body contains the same concentration of minerals as well as nutrients as the salt, so it is no wonder that sea salt is a natural ally to protect, balance and restore the body and skin.
One of the common differences between Himalayan pink salt and ordinary table salt is the content of minerals. Himalayan salt is loaded with 84 minerals including calcium, sodium, magnesium and potassium, and all these minerals play an important role in our skin health, function and cellular communication. When your skin loses the mineral balance, the symptoms such as dryness, dullness, itchiness and skin irritation sets in especially in the winter season. Adding salt in your daily beauty routine can help to balance hydration level of skin, maintain the pH level of skin and it also strengthens the protective barrier of the skin.
Here we take a look that how salt can be added in your daily beauty routine.
