Salt bath refers to soaking the skin in warm water and then applying salt powder to it for "bathing." It is not massaging or rubbing the skin directly with salt as people generally believe. Scientific practice has proven that saltwater floating can both sterilize and disinfect, as well as beautify the skin. It is effective for skin cleansing, whitening, moisturizing, acne removal, wrinkle prevention, and even weight loss and blood pressure reduction. Salt bath also has some therapeutic effects on skin diseases, joint pain, and rheumatism, and has a significant effect on hair growth and anti-aging.
After fully soaking the body in the bathtub, apply salt powder to the whole body starting from the head to the feet. The skin will then become smooth and oily. Rinse with clean water and soak in warm water before drying the body to end the salt bath. It is important not to neglect the back during the whole process as removing dirt from the back can not only clean the skin, but also make the whole body more relaxed and comfortable, and prevent back scabies and skin diseases. Using a soft-bristled brush dipped in salt powder to apply evenly to the back will make the process more relaxing and comfortable.
Rub the heels with salt powder. Although most of the body is applied with salt powder during the salt bath, why is only the heels rubbed with salt powder? This is because the heels of the feet are easily callused and very rough, and rolling them up and down with salt powder can remove the keratin layer and make the skin smooth and moist. Soaking the body in salted hot water for 15 minutes can reduce body fat and slim the figure in the long run. This kind of salt bath can also prevent and treat diseases such as arthritis, rheumatism, and shoulder periarthritis. Directly applying heat to the thick fat layer can reduce fat in that area.
Avoid saltwater entering the mouth, eyes, and nose; elderly people with certain illnesses such as severe hypertension, heart disease with uncompensated cardiac function, and acute stroke are not suitable for salt baths; do not take a salt bath on an empty stomach or while intoxicated; if any adverse reactions such as skin rashes or vomiting occur during the salt bath, stop immediately; and supplement the body with water and eat in moderation after the salt bath.
