2. Skin Softener for Face and Body
The granular quality of salt makes it a great exfoliant and as there are different textures, it’s great for sloughing off dead skin from various parts of the body – from the face (using fine salt) to the cracks on one’s heels (where coarse salt works better). We love the super fresh scent and fine-grained scrub texture of Lush’s Ocean Salt Face and Body Scrub (RM90- RM170) enriched with avocado and zingy lime oils. The citrus scent smelled so happy and lingered in the bathroom and on my skin long after I had my shower. In an emergency (or if you’re too cheap to get yourself a good body scrub), mix a quarter cup of salt with the same amount of coconut or grapeseed oil for a home-made scrub.
