So, the next time you pay a visit to the saloon, make sure that the ingredients listed on the menu contain salt.

However, you can also make use of this ingredient at home. All you need to do is to add one tablespoon of salt to your facial kit and if you're going in for an entire body spa, add three to four tablespoons of salt to the kit.

Massaging your skin with this powerful ingredient can help you to get rid of your problems in no time. So, what are you waiting for?

Take a look at why you should add salt to your body care routine this hot season:


Salt Removes Dead Skin:

Add one tablespoon of rock salt to three tablespoons of honey. Combine the two ingredients and apply the mixture on to the skin. Massage the mixture in a circular manner, so that you remove the dead skin with ease. Repeat after 2 days.


Salt Improves The Skin Tone:

To improve your skin tone, one of the best ingredients to use on your face is salt. Add two tablespoons of salt to rose water. Combine the two ingredients and rinse your face with this water twice to thrice in a day. The rose water will help to clear the skin and the salt will remove the skin's impurities.


Salt Treats Wrinkles:

Wrinkles can take away your beautiful look in just a minute. To treat and prevent wrinkles in the near future, massage the affected area with saline solution every day for 10 minutes. This little treatment can treat wrinkles.


Salt Makes The Skin Soft:

To make your skin soft, you don't have to waste big bucks on those fancy creams. A salt facial once in a week or twice in a week can help make your skin soft in no time. Add one tablespoon of salt to a bowl, mix a little cold cream and one teaspoon of milk. Combine the ingredients to make a thick paste for a facial.


Salt Gets Rid Of Pimples:

Pimples can be treated with a simple remedy. In a bowl, add one tablespoon of salt and one teaspoon of turmeric powder. To this, add a little curd and mix the ingredients well. Now, apply this thick paste only on the pimple. Allow it to dry and then rinse your face with warm water. Follow this trick twice in a week to make the pimples disappear.


Salt Treats Your Burns:

Salt can treat razor burns and heal the scar in no time. All you need to do is to apply salt solution immediately over the burn. It might sting a little, but it can heal your soft skin.


Salt Removes Blackheads:

Blackheads are stubborn on the skin and only with the help of salt therapy you can get rid of it. In a bowl, add one tablespoon of salt and a dash of warm water. Mix the ingredients and massage it on the blackhead-prone area before the salt melts into the water. When done, rinse the skin well with water.
