7 Ways to Use Sea Salt in your Beauty Routine

The newest product of the Wakaya family of health and wellness products, produced on the island of Wakaya in Fiji, is Wakaya Perfection Fijian Kosher Sea Salt.   Obviously, everyone loves how sea salt flavors almost everything we cook, but did you know, sea salt is a beauty product you should add to your daily beauty routine?   Try out these favorite recipes and let us know which are your favorites.

sea saltHair Invigoration:
We’ve tried a Sea Salt spray from a popular hair product brand from our favorite salon, but you can get wavy beachy hair on your own, too, by following these simple steps.  Add 6 teaspoons of Fijian Kosher Sea Salt to 6 ounces of hot water (for oily hair, add two additional teaspoons). Stir until dissolved and let cool to room temperature. Pour into a clean, empty spray bottle. Add a dash of tea tree oil and a teaspoon of your favorite conditioner, shake up the bottle, spritz your hair and scrunch it up.

Refreshing Skin Spray:
Add 1 tablespoon of sea salt to 1 cup of hot water, along with 1-2 drops of mint essential oil. Pour into a glass cosmetic bottle with a spray top. Refrigerate until cold. Spray your face liberally on warm days for a wonderful pick me up that will also firm and cleanse your skin.

To get soft glowing skin, gently rub 1 teaspoon of sea salt directly onto your face in a circular motion avoiding the sensitive skin around your eyes. Continue to rub until the salt completely dissolves. Press your face against a warm damp towel and wipe away any residue. Finish it off by rinsing your face with cold water and following up with the moisturizer of your choice.

Acne Zapper:
Many users at Acne.org swear by sea salt for helping to decrease inflammation and redness caused by outbreaks. Mix sea salt into a paste with water and gently apply to existing spots for an inexpensive and easy way to treat those pesky zits.

Body Scrub:
Mix together two cups of course sea salt with ½ cup coconut oil. Add 3 drops of your favorite essential oil. This amazing body scrub cleanses and exfoliates. But be warned, it can leave your shower slippery, so make sure you protect the family from slips by wiping down the tiles after you use it.

Detox Bath:
Fill your tub with hot water. Add 1/4 cup of sea salt and 1/4 cup of epsom salt, along with 1/2 cup of baking soda. The hot water is believed to pull the toxins to the top of your skin, and then as the water cools, it flushes them out. Rinse with lukewarm water before drying off. Your skin will be soft and your body will be cleansed.

Hand Softener:
This amazing hand scrub will be the talk of the town if you put it by the sink at your next dinner party. Simply stir together 1 cup of sea salt, 2 teaspoons of lemon extract,  and ½ cup of olive oil. Place the mixture in a jar with a small cosmetic spoon for easy dispensing.
