Salt Soap is a strange thing, because it is not really made of soap, it only looks like a bar of soap. The other day, I was looking for a salt lamp at a health store when I noticed some strange salt blocks in various colors sitting in a corner. As it turned out, they were soaps. Or, better said, they are called soaps because of their shape. My first impression was so favourable that I bought one – and I am glad I did!
I had no idea how to use it, so I had to follow the instructions A to Z. Here’s what needs to be done: wash face thoroughly with water only and leave it wet; rub salt soap all over face with circular motion. The salt doesn’t need to be washed off; it has to stay on the skin until it dries. The soap can be used at any time of the day, but I prefer not using it during the day, because the salt crystals make one’s face glisten in the sunshine. In the evening, on the other hand, one can use it and then go to bed with the pleasant feeling that something has been done to improve one’s health.
This soap restores the optimal acid-base balance of the skin; therefore it can be used on any type of skin. The pores of dry skin are closed by the salt, so the moisture won’t evaporate; on oily skin, salt reduces the activity of seborrheic, oil-producing glands. The soap can also be used on acne-prone skin, as it has a drying effect on acne, and heals it without scarring; the skin becomes soft and smooth again.
When used for the first couple of times, the soap may produce a tingling, burning sensation. This is a natural effect, so there should be no reason to worry about it.
This product can be used to sooth and heal insect bites, eczema, skin fungus and other types of skin diseases. In such cases, the soap should be soaked in water, and the resulting salty liquid spread over the problem areas.
