Despite getting bad press when it comes to your health, salt (well, sea salt to be precise) can actually help balance, protect and restore your skin. This is because sea salt is packed with magnesium, calcium, sodium and potassium all of which are needed if you want great looking, health skin.
Dryness, dullness, irritation and blotchiness are all issues we hear about at Pure-Beauty and luckily we have some excellent products that contain sea salt and can help get your skin back on track.
We have mentioned it before, and we are sure we will do it again, but that is because Dermalogica Hydro Active Mineral Salts ‘rock’. Suitable for all skin types, this product can be used as either a smoothing salt scrub or added to your bath water for a heavenly mineral soak. So, how do these salts work? Firstly mineral-rich sea salt and natural kelp gently soften and polish tired skin. Then, Lemon, Rosemary and Tea Tree oils help purify the skin while Sandalwood, Lavender, Orange and Clary Sage oils smooth and condition it. Coriander, Cinnamon and Ginger have been added to the mix to stimulate the senses and the overall result is happy, hydrated skin and a calmer, clearer mind.
Elemis is a new range for Pure-Beauty and we are already in love with their BIOTEC Skin Energising Cleanser. The secret behind the success of this product lies with a unique solution of sea salt, minerals and electrolytes that help boost cell metabolism. A trio of acids have also been added so that excess surface oils and impurities are washed away but the skin is left rebalanced and your complexion looks fresh, energised and beautifully revived.
Sea salt has been mixed with skin loving Zinc and Copper in the Elemis BIOTEC Skin Energising Day Cream and the results are pretty outstanding. Alisma water plantain, Sodium PCA and Cranberry seed oil have been mixed together to feed the skin with nutrition and lock in moisture so skin looks, and feels, youthful and healthy.
If you need your aches and pain to melt away, why not try the Elemis Aching Muscle Super Soak? This natural foaming bath soak eases overworked, tired, aching muscles thanks to sea salt being mixed with extracts of Birch, Juniper, Clove, Alpine Lavender, Wild Thyme and Blue Chamomile. Simply add three caps of the liquid to running bath water then lie back, relax and let your mind and body unwind.
Another new favourite for us is the Elemis Lime and Ginger Salt Glow. Lime, Ginger and Salt have been blended together with Bergamot, Coconut and Sweet Almond to create a gorgeous spa style exfoliant. These salts have been designed to be used in the shower and are especially effective on those stubborn areas like knees, elbows and feet. The salts come in a stylish jar not only clear away dead skin cells but also stimulate and tone the skin leaving it feeling seriously soft and totally revived.
