Himalayan salts are highly beneficial for combating skin allergies. Skin allergies are caused by a many  factors, from stress and chemicals to age and illness. Himalayan salts have high bromine and magnesium levels, both of which are great for fighting allergies due to their detoxification and cleansing of the skin. It also can make the skin smoother and soothe rough skin as well. These salts are also known to help with skin conditions like psoriasis, dry skin, acne, insect bites and blisters. 

Bathing in natural Himalayan sea salt is a low-cost skin care alternative that is not only pleasant, it’s also quite effective. The salt is readily absorbed into your skin, cleaning and purifying your pores from the inside out, leaving you with a healthy, youthful glow. Bathing in sea salt also plumps up the skin, filling out fine lines and wrinkles.
