Salt is just perfect for anyone whose idea of personal grooming involves only natural remedies. It’s a magical ingredient worthy of being hauled out of the kitchen and kept in your beauty care box. The minerals and nutrients present in it can not only enhance the body and skin but also get you shinier nails and brighter teeth. In fact, salt can be your secret recipe for helping the body at cellular levels, and even slow down ageing as well. So, enrich your beauty care with salt and make your skin as flawless as you want.

Here are ways to use salt to benefit your skin, nails, hairs and teeth –

1. Tone your facial skin

Salt can help as a natural toner for your oil-sapping facial skin. Beauty experts tell how it can cleanse skin pores deeply and balance oil production. This is how it keeps away those bacteria known for causing acne and other similar spots on the skin. All you have to do is, mix a bit of salt with warm water and wait for the solution to get dissolved. You can then go on misting it on your clean and dry skin in a gentle manner. You can use it once or twice a day, but make sure the spray does not enter the eyes.

2. Soften your body scrub

You can look fresh and rejuvenating only when the skin is soft and gentle. Dead skin can take away all the shine of your face and make you appear dull. Well, don’t need to feel and look bad when salt is there! It can work as a natural exfoliate to cast off the layer of dead skin over time. Plus, the minerals in salt can help restore hydration and soften skin easily. You just have to prepare a thick paste of salt and coconut oil and apply it to scrub skin for desired results.

3. Brighten your nail

White patches on the nail are never good from aesthetic point of view. They give an indication that your nails need to be worked upon. You can rely on salt to soften cuticles and make the nails healthy. Using salt in combination with lemon and baking soda can get rid of the yellowish shade to make nails brighter and healthier. You have to mix all the three ingredients in a small bowl and then soak nails in the solution for 10 minutes or so. And a scrubbing with soft brush can brighten the nails.

4. Anti-Dandruff Scalp Treatment

Do away with all this pricey shampoos claiming to wash off dandruff from your scalp. Rather, trust salt to do the trick and save you money, and hassle, in the process. It can make the flakes loosen before casting off together with stimulating the circulation in the scalp. Salt is also known to prevent fungal growth which does not allow the root of dandruff to re-appear again ever. You just have to sprinkle salt on the scalp and message gently for 10 minutes before washing for immediate results.

  1. I can’t believe people believe this stuff, I can only attest to the points pertaining to teeth because I’ve worked in the Dental field for over 6 years. We get so many people who come in with exorbitant problems who thought they could fix things with these ridiculous remedies. Well, I guess it’s job security..

    1. I am sorry but this blog isn’t anyone’s job and writing posts with intentionally false information is certainly something we would never intentionally do. There are no profits here and no one is getting paid. I would also suggest doing a Google search first next time you are going to leave a needlessly sarcastic and rude toned comment on a stranger’s blog. There are plenty of sources available that would support this post’s claim that salt in a natural teeth whitener.


      “Using a sea salt water mixture to aid in dental health is by no means a new practice. In fact, many ancient medical scripts refer to the use of salt water. There are even a few papyruses dated as far back as 1600 B.C. in which Egyptians detailed how to use their recipes to treat a variety of medical ailments. One of the most commonly used treatments seems to have been utilizing salt for its anti-infective properties. The Ancient Egyptians were not alone in their understanding of the benefits of salt; the Greeks are another ancient civilization who had an early understanding of the anti-inflammatory benefits of using salt.

      Essentially, the presence of salt in your mouth increases its pH balance. The environment that results is very alkaline, and bacteria cannot survive in an alkaline environment. Bacteria is only able to thrive in an atmosphere that is very acidic. When salt is used on a regular basis, bacteria will not be healthy enough to reproduce, resulting in a healthier mouth.

      Furthermore, sea salt also has whitening properties. Not only does it work as a natural scrub, but, in addition, it contains phosphorous and iron to strengthen teeth. Further, some sea salts, like the salt from the Dead Sea, also contain trace elements of bromide. This amount is quite safe for daily use, and still highly effective.

      Creating a salt water rinse is to encourage dental health at home is incredibly easy. All you need is a cup of warm water and 1/4 teaspoon of sea salt. Rinse with it daily and you will see whitening results.”

      Of course I will do further research and update this if it’s incorrect. And in the future you should keep in mind that there are much nicer ways to tell someone you believe they are misinformed about a topic. Kindness and civility matter, even on the Internet. Belittling one of my writers like that was unnecessary and I hope next time you will find a way to offer your opinion without casually insulting another person.


      1. Learn to take criticism. Readers digest isn’t a scientific source of Information
        Try the ADA next time, or somewhere with empirical data. Don’t give people ineffective and possibly unhealthy tips for their teeth. You’re doing people more harm than good. Not being a paid blogger isn’t reason to not do your research, even skincare bloggers look up ingredients and data before posting reviews. It’s not about money its about posting with integrity. Your excuses are pathetic and trying to belittle a reader for calling you out is pretty pathetic.

      2. I am only interested in standing up for my writer. I honestly appreciate people who try and correct misinformation they see online because bad beauty advice can be dangerous. I do the same thing when I see it and it’s a cool thing to do if you don’t do it in a backhanded way. That’s the only point I was trying to make. Let’s just call a truce because this is clearly a ridiculous miscommunication. You are a beautiful woman who has a lovely blog and I wish you lots of future success with your endeavors.
