Here at the Oasis we are all about SMOOTH Skin this summer. Why not right? Doesn't everyone love smooth skin? Last week we talked about how Light Therapy can banish acne and promote clearer, smoother skin.
I got completely real with you guys when I showed the before and after of my face from using Light Therapy. Talk about transparently nerve wracking! But you know what, I don't care! If my before and after photo intrigues one person to trying Light Therapy for their skin, it is well worth it.
This week we are still talking about clear, smooth skin but we are showing you another way to achieve it...using what we know best HIMALAYAN SALT! Pink salt is great for our environment and our bodies, inside and out. Check out these 5 ways Himalayan Salt can create smooth skin...
1. Treats Acne
So we all know by now that salt is naturally antibacterial and antimicrobial which makes it a natural antiseptic. Thus, washing your face with a salt scrub or a salt stone(mine is round) can significantly reduce breakouts from happening.
2. Reduces Oily Skin (and hair)
Salt naturally soaks up excess moisture including oil. If you are prone to oily skin and/or hair, try using a salt stone (we have a few different kinds) in your daily skin care routine and don't be afraid to add some salt to your shampoo!
Salt scrubs have been known to do wonders since the dawn of time. Now with such easy access to Himalayan salt, all of us can reap the benefits of the purest salt in the world!
Using a scrub or stone (scrub is better for exfoliating) will really remove any dead skin cells, from any part of the body, leaving behind soft, supple skin that is glowing.
Known worldwide for it's detoxifying properties, Himalayan salt is one of the best natural detoxes. It will get deep within pores to remove toxins, heavy metals, pollutants and grime, leaving you with clean, refreshed skin. This helps not only your overall health but can prevent breakouts all over the body.

5.Tones and Balances Skin's pH
Skin is naturally slightly acidic and almost all face and skin cleansers lean to be alkaline, which can really cause some problems like, breakouts and irritation. Luckily though, using a salt stone or scrub will actually add a little acidity back to your skin, naturally balancing out your pH.
As for toning, salt is great for tightening skin and reducing pore size. Can we say Hallelujah! I don't know a woman who doesn't want tighter skin and smaller pores. You can use it with your regular toner, or in place of one after your cleanser.
So there you have it....5 short and simple ways Himalayan salt can give you AMAZING looking skin. And the awesome thing is, these are just 5 benefits I thought would be most helpful to point out. I didn't mention other things like, pink salt can help create texture in hair and beauty looking waves or that it reduces dandruff or that it can even be used for a natural deodorant.
Himalayan salt is packed full of trace minerals and is one of the purest substances in the world. Is it any wonder this beautiful substance can do so many wonderful things to and for our bodies?
