If you want to keep you skin looking its best and prevent aging, don’t consume salt. News on the street is salt sucks moisture out of your skin, and moisture is what keeps your skin looking supple, young, and fresh. In fact, what you should be doing is drinking at least six 8-ounce glasses of water each day because water helps keep skin supple and vibrant by expelling toxins from your body.
If you want to use salt, here’s some external uses, which is the best way for your skin to benefit from salt.
- Add 1 cup table salt to your bathtub and soak. Saltwater baths relieve itching, draw out toxins, and leave your skin amazingly soft.
