I want to write a review on how much I love sea salt for my skin but I don't know where to place my review in. You see, I don't use sea salt as a mask but as a casual soap maker I love making my own sea salt soap. Sea salt soap differs from other homemade moisturizing soap in that it barely lathers and contains a high concentration of coconut oil. Sea salt soap is so effective in reducing the size of your brown spots and moles and gives you radiant skin within a week because it exfoliates your skin and rejunevate as well. If you are too busy or too lazy to do facial mask then sea salt soap is the way to go. I always advise others to use a moisturizing soap and only use sea salt soap 3 times a week. Many of my friends are so tempted to use it everyday due to it efficacy but I always discourage them not to because sea salt soap can be drying and always use a rich moisturizer after that.

To do the sea salt mask, I put about 1 cup hot water in a cup and add about 3tablespoons Himalayan pink salt with all kinds of beneficial minerals in it. I let the salt dissolve and then I get a cotton pad and just dab it over where ever I'm breaking out. It will sting/ itch a little, but it's bearable. I'm honestly so shocked at how well and quickly this works!! I have keratosis Pilaris on both my face and my arms and the salt immediately gets rid of 90% of the redness that I have, any swelling goes down, and literally over night or within a couple days, the areas where I was breaking out are completely gone!! I either keep it on for 30 mins or just fall asleep with it on. Haven't noticed any huge differences either way. I really really love this stuff. Makes sense now because whenever I go to the beach my skin looks great! I also like this because I keep the salt mixture in a little Tervis tumblr with a lid, so the mixture will last me weeks- so easy!

I don't how I've never tried salt for my skin!! I make a spray treatment for my face using a recipe I found on Pinterest.

I take 1 cup of warm water, 1 tablespoon of Mediterranean sea salt or Himalayan pink salt, (NOT IODIZED, PEOPLE!!) and a pinch of epsom salt. I mix it till it dissolves and pour it in a spray bottle. I spray this on at night after I wash my face and I let it sit for 45 minutes or less. You don't have to leave it on for that long if you don't want to. I wash it off then apply moisturizer.

My skin feels so smooth and disinfected and my skin hasn't been breaking out as much! So cheap to make and highly recommend it for all skin types!

Hi guys, I tried to mix it sea salt and water. After I dissolved the salt, I used the mixture as a toner. It STUNG like insane, that I had to rinse it off after a few minutes! Is this normal?? Then I reduced the concentration, it still stung, but more bearable.

UPDATE: I've given this a lot of tries. It doesn't help with my acne. It just makes my face feel dry and sticky. I'm leaving this out. Lucky it's cheap.

Ok so after using this for about two weeks I have decided to stop.
I did not notice it help with discoloration. scars, skintone, or my oily skin in any way.
As for blemishes I think I actually got a bit more?? Not sure. I do know that it did not prevent them at all. It did, however, help to reduce the size of them by morning. Did not make them go away but toned them down a bit and reduced swelling.
For me I just was not satisfied with this and if I have to mix up my own products I would prefer whipping up a turmeric mask, or using a milk facial.

I used with water and salt as a mask (this helped the most with bringing down swelling in large blemishes in the skin)

I also used with a olive oil, water and salt scrub mix. I kept it in my shower and used it there. I would leave it on for a few minutes longer after scrubbing GENTLY.

It did exfoliate well and made my skin super soft but any scrub and oil can do that.
I prefer using my brown sugar, olivie oil, lemon scrub for an exfoliant over this.


This is not something I am going to use again. Like I said I prefer my diy scrub with brown sugar, turmeric masks, and asprin masks for blemishes.

I started using a sea salt and water solution on my face during the day and I noticed an improvement in the pores on my nose and in overall radiance! Just mix a cup of sea salt with a cup of warm water then apply it to a cotton round and apply the water mixture to your face. I apply it in the morning after washing my face and I can feel it killing the acne. I leave it on all day and wear it under my makeup. The grit never bothers me and it's not noticeable.

This is my very first review here on Makeupalley, hello everyone!! :)

So... I don't really consider myself as an acne patient, but I do have some closed comedones and some of them will grow into small pimples. But those small pimples can be so inflamed... Really annoying.

I did some research and I found out that sea salt could help with my problem. So I took a small bowl, poured some sea salt in, mixed it with hot water and soaked it into a cotton ball. I put it al over my face and I made a sea salt paste for those little pimples.

The next morning.. I ran to the mirror and I noticed that the pimples were smaller and the closed comedones barely noticeble. SAY WHAT?! I was so happy!

I have oily skin, so I left it on without using moisterizer and my skin loved it :)
I also used it on a red spot on my back that wouldn't go away and it seems to help!

I'm sold! I love love love sea salt and I will continue to use it!

This is crazy! How did I never hear about this before? So thrilled with these results...

As I've gotten older and found better products, my skin has cleared considerably but my hormonal cysts from that TOM still plague me occasionally. Unfortunately, I have a problem with picking at these which leads to an even bigger mess. Enter help from the experts at MUA! I read about using sea salt to dry up these issues and remembered how seawater would clear up my teenage acne (and even my baby sister's stubborn diaper rash, but that's a whole other story). For the price, I figured I had nothing to lose!

I put some water in a teacup and added a bunch of the natural sea salt from my cupboard, then popped in the microwave for about 30 seconds. Stirred til dissolved, then used a funnel to pour into a travel-sized 4 oz bottle.

Twice a day, I use a cotton round to apply this solution to my popped-cyst mess. Let sit for 5 minutes (stings but doesn't BURN) and then rinse. This dried and flattened my cyst within a DAY and is helping it to heal so well and quickly! I couldn't be happier with the results!!

Still hoping to have better self control and KEEP MY HANDS OFF, but at least this has helped me out. Would like to try this on un-popped zits to see if it can't help dry them up.

As always, thanks to you wise members here at MUA for helping me out. Love this site!!!

After a recent dip in the salty Atlantic, I discovered that some spots I had been battling were greatly reduced. What was amazing was how my skin was not dry or irritated--but surprisingly smooth. As I stared out into the ocean, the golden afternoon sun warming my back, the revelation came to me suddenly--sea salt, for everyday use.

One morning recently I woke up with some angry bumps fighting for their existence on my face. I mixed about half a teaspoon into my usual fuller's earth+turmeric zit zapping masque, and patted it on. I left it on for about 30 minutes, not noticing any itchiness or anything. When I washed it off, to my supreme joy--my skin was obscenely smooth. And not greasy, or dry. Perfect. It was perfect.

I dissolved another half teaspoon into my rosewater toner, and sprayed it on. Yet again, my skin is smooth and not greasy. I feel that the tiny bumps that spring up on my forehead are greatly diminished.

I would give this fifty lippies if I could. Literally a fraction of a penny, and an incredible ingredient.

Remember to use sea salt, not regular table salt. Table salt is just sodium chloride, sea salt has many other minerals in it that do the good stuff. Sea salt is very cheap and can be found anywhere. Morton's has a sea salt, but you can also buy it in bags at Asian or Indian grocery stores quite cheaply.

Unfortunately sea salt always causes itchy, sore breakouts all over my face whether I use it straight or as an ingredient in something else.
