As the spring weather warms up, you’re probably getting ready to bare more skin and enjoy more sun in the coming months. While exciting, new seasons and changes in weather conditions can mean necessary switch-ups to your beauty routine to keep your skin and hair looking fresh and clear.
Thankfully, you don’t need to invest hundreds of dollars in new products to achieve desired radiance. Epsom salt, an affordable, common household product is beauty’s best-kept, natural secret ingredient to looking your best. Here are some of the beauty hacks you can achieve with Epsom salt this spring:
- Fight Acne Breakouts: As the temperature rises, so does the chance of sweat that can clog pores with acne-causing bacteria. The magnesium sulfate in Epsom salt can help reduce the inflammation of your breakouts and detoxify your pores. Simply mix some salts into a hydrating face wash or face oil to reduce the appearance of blemishes without the sun sensitivity side effects of common over the counter acne treatments.
- Exfoliate Your Skin: No one wants to show off dull skin. Before you break out the sleeveless tops, dresses, and shorts this spring, prep your skin with an exfoliating Epsom salt full-body scrub. Effectively get rid of dead cells by taking a warm shower and then massaging your skin with Epsom salts mixed with coconut oil.
- Add Volume to Your Hair: Heat can make it harder to skip hair-wash days when oil and sweat weigh your tresses down. Ditch the dry shampoo and try a clarifying hair treatment with Epsom salt to maintain life in your hair for longer between washes. Every week or so, mix Epsom salts in your favorite conditioner and let the mixture sit in your hair for a bit before washing it out.
The changing of seasons shouldn’t mean you have to sacrifice your glow! Save some money and look your best this spring with Epsom salt.
