Recover From Your Summer Vacation with Epsom Salt.


Summer is winding down and many are gearing up for their last summer trips. While vacations are typically very relaxing and rejuvenating experiences, returning home can be unpleasant for more reasons than one. Don’t fret, while Epsom salt can’t turn back time to return you to a beautiful beach destination, sprinkling a cup or two of Epsom salt in a post-vacation bath can make your transition back to reality a little less painful.

From soothing your skin to curing your post-vacation blues, below are the top three ways that Epsom salt can help you recover from your summer adventure!

  • Cure Those Post-Trip Blues: Whether you have anxiety about returning to work or are already missing paradise, the first few days after a great vacation can be a difficult transition. Some may experience heightened stress and trouble sleeping as they transition back into their routine. This can be made even worse by jet lag when your sleeping patterns are disrupted. Thankfully, soaking in an Epsom salt bath allows magnesium to absorb through your skin, improving subsequent sleep and helping to relieve stress.


  • Soothe That Stiff Neck: Even with a neck pillow, sleeping, or just sitting too long, on a plane, bus or train can wreak havoc on your muscles and joints. If you have a stiff neck or tightness in your back, try doing some stretches before hopping into an Epsom salt bath to speed up muscle recovery and soothe soreness.


  • Calm Angry Sunburnt Skin: Did you skimp on the SPF? Or fall asleep without your sun hat on? It happens to the best of us. However, depending on how severe your sunburn is, it may take a while for the redness to fade. Even worse, your skin may experience lingering pain or start to peel. Soaking in an Epsom salt bath can soothe discomfort and help speed up the healing process, while using the mineral as a gentle scrub can exfoliate away dead skin.

You may be mourning the end of a memorable trip, but there’s no need for your skin, muscles or sleep cycle to suffer! Leave the unpacking for another day and hop right into an Epsom salt bath to make the transition back to reality a smooth one.
