Epsom salt is a magnesium sulfate mineral compound naturally found in Epsom springs in Surrey, England. Normally sold in health stores, these tiny crystals act like a spa in a jar, offering several prettifying benefits. Scroll down to find out how Epsom salt can amp up your beauty routine.

Detoxifies your scalp

Mix equal parts of Epsom salt to your favorite conditioner, and then massage it on your roots. This decongests the scalp of product build-up and naturally resurrects the bounce of your locks.

Creates an affordable facial
Save pesos and get rid of dull skin at home. Using your favorite cleansing cream or creamy facial cleanser, add a few pinches of Epsom salt, and then gently rub it on your face in circular motions to deeply cleanse your pores.

Moisturizes dry lips
Prior to lipstick application, remove flaky skin by concocting a coconut oil-Epsom salt lip scrub and buffing it on your pout. You also try other oils like olive or sunflower oil.

Awakens your body’s glow
Even your body deserves to radiate. Following the same coconut oil-Epsom salt formula mentioned above, knead the body scrub on your body to lift dead skin. Rinse with warm water and envelop your body with a moisturizing lotion.

Relieves sunburn

When you’ve got sun-toasted skin, stir a couple of spoonfuls of Epsom salt in a cup of water, place it in a spray bottle, and mist on skin for instant relief.

Eliminates foot odor
Add Epsom salt to warm water, and soak feet in the solution for 10 minutes to rid your feet of bad odor, soothe aches, and soften skin.

Calms bug bites
Infuse two tablespoons of Epsom salt into a cup of water, dip a washcloth or cotton ball in the mixture, and lightly pat directly on the insect bite to soothe the itch.
