The humble grain of salt is having a real beauty moment. With interests in natural and sustainable skin-solutions on the rise, it makes sense that we're looking to something that's plentifully present in our oceans for its incredibly versatile qualities and bevy of benefits. Enter NaCl..... (that's it's scientific name, darling!)
So much more than just a haircare must-have for beauty waves; antiseptic, detoxifying, preservative, cleansing, and healing, while salt is known to dry things out, it can also help to hold moisture in. (Call your secondary school understanding of osmosis to mind.)

Exfoliating scrub gently buffs and polishes with real Sea Salt crystals in an emollient base, loosening dead, dry, flaking skin for silky soft and smooth lips. The deeply hydrating lip repairing balm nourishes and comforts with natural oils and Shea Butter for added soothing and hydration.
In the hair, it helps to build texture but in body scrubs, salt exfoliates and purifies, while soaking in a tub of the stuff helps relax both body and spirit, as well as combating the drying effects of steamy water on skin.
It’s #NationalBubbleBathDay, so make sure you bring some relaxation to your Monday night. Smooth our Atlantic Kelp and Magnesium Anti-Fatigue body scrub onto dry skin and let it soak into the water as you get in the bath. The result? Energised skin and uplifted senses. 🌊 📸 @lbqblog #goClean #feelREN
For go-to granules, clean salts should top your list, such as pink Himalayan, Cornish salts and Dead Sea salts, which have essential minerals and sea-leached nutrients bound in them, for additional benefit.
If it’s more restful sleep you're after, salt baths can help to balance energy flow and reduce cortisol levels, while those who suffer from eczema and psoriasis should harness the natural mineral's power to bolster the skin’s barrier and reduce inflammation.
