Sea salt scrubs and sea salt baths are two of the most simple and yet luxurious beauty rituals that one can have. Sea salt is a staple of the earth and with good reason. The body is substantially made up of it and responses really well to it. There are many options you can consider for a sea salt bath or scrub so we thought we should go through some of the choices to make it ultra clear.
Firstly for you to understand is that the skin is actually very permeable and anything that it comes into contact with can be absorbed into it.
