Having a good exfoliant for your body is very important. Many women forget about that. And many others spend way too much for something so simple. Of course it is better to spend, rather than not do anything at all. Tough it turns out that we don’t even need to make that trip to the mall to have a good exfoliation. Everything we need might be hidden in the kitchen cabinets.

Every product that contains only natural substances is a better product than those filled with chemicals. Those natural products help us way more than the others. They take good care of us and our skin and kill every dead cell, that is not need. The benefits for the skin are way more than what they could be any other way.

As a whole salt isn’t good for us. In the means of eating too much of it every time we eat. It could damage our vision, metabolism and make us hold water in the body and be bloated. But it turns out that the salt could be very beneficial, when not eaten, but puts on the body.

Sea salt actually is the true benefactor for our beautiful bodies. It is one of the best things to use if you have cellulite. And even if you do not have cellulite, it still will kill the dead cells that you don’t need and will make your skin look younger and more elastic. It is really important, tough not to make the mistakes to mix the sea with the kitchen salt. In this case we need the sea salt.

Sea salt contains potassium, sodium, manganese, bromine, calcium, copper, iodine, zinc, selenium. All beneficial and good for our bodies. When the sea salt is heated up by the warmth of the body, the – ions are activated and they do wonders for the body and the organs.

In many cosmetic studios and even cosmetic brands offers us treatment with sea salt. And that is great, because we already said that it is very good for you. But you have to pay loads of money. And as much as it is good for you, it might be kind of overpriced.

It turns out that many of the things being offered at saloons and shops could be made at home. Or at least alternatives to them.

Pimples are for sure not a girls best friend. You need to make a sea salt compress. To make it you should but 2 spoons of sea salt into 1 liter boiling water for 4-5 minutes. Then you wet a towel or a cotton tampon and put it over the pimple. Leave for a few minutes until dry. When it is, dab into the mixture again and then remove and rinse. This will definitely will be one of the most helpful things you have done for your pimple. This method is very suitable for people with sensitive skin.

No matter if you have cellulite or not, body exfoliation is important. This will keep your skin look younger and fresher. The body exfoliant includes 3 spoons of sea salt, 3-4 drops of lavender ethereal oil and 2 teaspoons olive oil. You should mix the ingredients well.

Something to remember after every piling procedure you do (no matter face or body) is that you MUST apply moisturizer right after the exfoliation.
