If you think that sea salt is only used in cooking, think again. Sea salt can also be used externally to fasten the disappearance of cellulite like no other.

Unlike usual table salt, sea salt is made from evaporated sea water and is almost unprocessed without the addition of harsh chemicals (often found in table salt). Thus, it’s a more natural and safe option for both internall and externall use. It is something ¬†which is easily found everywhere and it’s one of the most inexpensive ingredients available.

Sea salt can be used both as a peeling agent, in conjunction with natural essential oils and diluted in bath water. Studies suggest that it greatly helps the skin by stimulating circulation, helping the skin expel toxins and even reduce external signs of stress such as dull skin.

How to use sea salt during bath or shower time:

Dissolve half a cup of sea salt in some water to make a paste and use that paste in semi-wet skin during shower time. Alternatively, pour some sea salt in bath water (you can add a few drops of your favorite essential oils) and soak for forty-five minutes to an hour. You can also keep a small amount of undissolved sea salt to scrub your skin in upward circular motions to increase the blood flow and remove toxins more effectively. Avoid using too hot water as it has the tendency to dehydrate the skin and counteract any beneficial effects that the salt may have.The ideal frequency to use sea salt 1-2 times per week.
