The Benefits of Bath Salt

With the many things that we add to our bath, like bubbles, perfumes or oils, you may wonder what the purpose of using bath salt instead. One of the reasons is that using them augments the salt in your bath water which is known to diminish the bacteria that is on your skin. This bath water additive allows the body to discard the excess dead skin quicker and helps to protect the body’s skin from illness. It can also help to soften the skin while making it healthier, smoother, and moister.

If you want to try these salts the first thing to do is to be certain to put them in as the water is running into the tub. If you pour them in after the bath is filled they will not dissolve properly and so there will be no benefits to having put the bath salt into the bath. This is because they take a little time to properly dissolve and if you put them in at the beginning they will have that time. Some people use them scented while others prefer no scent. The thing to remember is that the delicate scent that is added will not be detrimental to your skin so if you like the scents it is okay to use them.
