Benefits of Sea Salt Glow Body Treatment
By Brian Lewis.
A sea salt glow, also called a salt scrub, benefits your skin by exfoliating and removing old skin cells, leaving you with hydrated, smooth, more lustrous skin. Applied at a spa or at home, a basic salt scrub consists of marine salts and essential oils blended into a paste-like substance that can be gently massaged over the body. If you need to look extra special for some occasion, count on a sea salt glow to give you that radiant look.
Just as sanding returns luster to hardwood floors or an old sailboat, scrubbing the skin with an abrasive ingredient -- like sea salt -- buffs away the top layer of dead skin, leaving a polished appearance that feels silky smooth. Exfoliation not only improves skin tone, but it can relieve the symptoms of certain skin disorders, such as eczema and psoriasis. Because of the high concentration of magnesium in sea salt, both the National Eczema Association and the National Psoriasis Foundation recommend using a sea salt glow as a method to reduce the itching and inflammation caused by skin diseases.
A sea salt glow helps draw the toxins from the body and increases skin blood circulation, promoting the growth of new skin cells. According to the International Journal of Dermatology, the presence of magnesium sulfate in marine salts, especially those from the Dead Sea, stimulates the liver and adrenal glands to dump their toxins. By detoxifying, you assist your immune system in fighting infections and illness.
Sea salt, which is laden with minerals, nourishes and hydrates the skin. Essential oils are also used in sea salt body scrub recipes, and these oils not only smell good, According to Elle.com, sea salt baths act as moisturizers that soothe dry and irritated skin.
Most salt glows contain blends of natural essential oils that can arouse the senses, revive your mood and make you relax. Marine salts are rich in bromides, which are natural sedatives, so a sea salt scrub can give you a sense of calm and relaxation. Elle.com also notes that salted water is rich in minerals that have a relaxing effect on nerves and muscles.
Benefits of Sea Salt for the Skin

Sea salt is growing in popularity - not just on the dining room table but in skin products as well. It can be found in a variety of different forms in bath salts, soaps and exfoliating scrubs. Sea salt is made by taking water from the oceans or saline lakes and letting the water evaporate to leave the salts behind, whereas table salt is mined from salt deposits in the earth and heavily processed to produce “clean” salt.
Sea salt is an excellent exfoliating treatment, and according to CareFair.com, is found as a primary ingredient in many high-end spa treatments. In a June 2010 article in the "San Jose Mercury News," Lisa Price, founder of Carol’s Daughter, a natural beauty product retailer, recommends paying attention to the grade of sea salt used to exfoliate. Sea salt used to rub into the skin shouldn’t have rough, sharp edges. The texture of the sea salt should be smooth to the touch, as you want it to gently slough off the dead skin cells, not scratch the skin. It can also be used as a rub to exfoliate and soften tough skin.
Ancient Greeks and Romans both used warm seawater as a therapy to help them relax. This is now called talassotherapy, a word derived from the old Greek word thalassa, which means sea. According to Health-Benefit-of-Water.com, sea salt bath therapy provides psychological benefits and improves quality of sleep.
Sea salt is a natural detoxifier, as the salt absorbs the toxins from the skin. Make a paste out of sea salt and water, apply it to your skin and leave it on for one minute before you get into the shower. Massage the salt off gently in the shower as you bathe. This will not only help detoxify your skin, but will help exfoliate dead skin cells as you rinse it off.
Increased circulation, antiseptic effects, soft skin without a greasy feel and reduction in fluid retention are just some of the additional benefits of sea salt for the skin. Since sea salt does not go through the same manufacturing processes as table salt, the minerals from the sea remain, giving sea salts different colorings depending on where they are from. Many of these minerals also provide nutrients and benefits to the skin.
