Don’t ignore salt, a natural product already fabricated by nature itself, which is cheap and efficient. Cosmetic treatments that have salt in their composition enhance the skin, increase the circulation of the blood, improve the tissue and eliminate those nasty black spots on your skin.
In order to integrate it with success in your morning beauty ritual, you should opt for table salt or marine salt.
Use salt treatments during your day to day rituals or on a regular basis and you will enjoy a hydrated skin, which will maintain its youthful appearance for a long time.
For skin that feels like silk
Prepare an oil body mask: pour 2 cups of salt in a bowl, one-quarter of a mug filled with warm water and one cup of olive oil. Mix them until they become homogenous, and massage your whole body with this paste.
Leave it on for 20 minutes, then take a shower. It is recommended to apply the body mask in the bathroom.
For dry skin
If you have a particularly rough and dry skin, consider using the following treatment: mix two glasses of table salt with one glass of olive oil and one-quarter of a glass of water until you obtain a homogenous paste.
Apply the mixture on your skin (legs, feet, arms, torso, etc.), rub it softly, and leave it on for about 10 to 15 minutes to be absorbed by the skin. After that, wash it with warm water.
To regenerate the skin
This particular method will make the skin on your feet softer, like silk.

To eliminate the zits
This remedy cleanses the skin of the face and dries the zits. It acts very quickly against various impurities, especially on an oily skin. Dissolve two spoons of salt in a liter of hot water. Let it get cold. Dip a small towel in the liquid and apply it for 5 minutes on your face.

Take off the mask using circular motions, then wash your face with warm water.
