Acne and salt water do appear to have a link. Far too many people use salt water regularly and promote its benefits, despite the lack of research into salt water acne treatments.
While the exact mechanism is unclear, there are logical reasons to believe that salt water can be a quick and easy way to fight your acne breakouts. They do have drying and anti-bacterial properties that may be advantageous in eliminating acne.
Sea Salt with Water
Mix equal quantities of sea salt and warm water.
Wash your face with cleanser and warm water to open up the pores.
Using fingertips, apply the paste on acne affected area.
Massage gently in circular motions for few minutes.
Leave it on for 15 minutes.
Rinse with warm water followed by cool water.
Pat dry and apply oil-free moisturizer.
Repeat the process regularly.
Sea Salt Spray
Combine enough amounts of sea salt and water.
Pour the solution spray bottle and spritz on the skin.
Massage in circular motions for few minutes.
Rinse with water and pat dry.
Repeat the process daily for a young and healthy skin.
Sea Salt with Grapefruit Peel
Grapefruit juice balances the oil production and pH level of the skin. This process is effective for people with oily skin.
Into a blender, add 1/2 cup sea salt, 1 cup granulated sugar, 1 tablespoon grapefruit juice, 3 tablespoons of coconut oil, contents of 1 vitamin E oil capsule and 1 tablespoon of grapefruit zest.
Blend all the ingredients to make a fine paste.
Using fingertips, massage the paste on the affected areas.
Leave it on for 3 minutes, then rinse with cool water and pat dry.
Repeat the process daily.
Refrigerate the leftover mixture in an airtight container for future use. You have to use the paste within 2 weeks.
