What Are The Benefits of Pink Sea Salt Body Scrub?

Let me count the ways!

First of all, it feels amazing! Getting all that dead skin off will make you feel refreshed. And of course, your skin will be ridiculously soft.

Besides the feel-good factor, there are actual health benefits to using a body scrub.

The pink Himalayan sea salt used in this body scrub recipe makes it even more beneficial!

1. Exfoliates and Removes Dead Skin Cells

I know, master of the obvious right.

Seriously though this is the main purpose and benefit of using a body scrub!

Exfoliation of dead skin cells helps the skin to better absorb moisturizers.

Exfoliation is what gets rid of dull skin. Removing dead skin cells leaves your skin smoother, brighter, and more vibrant.

The larger crystals in Himalayan sea salt are more aggressive than a sugar scrub at removing dead skin.

2. Softens Your Skin Deeply

There are over 80 naturally occurring minerals in pink Himalayan sea salt!

These minerals penetrate the cells of your skin leaving it feeling soft and nourished.


Not only that, but the minerals also absorb into your body helping to restore depleted minerals.

Also, did you know that pink salt is detoxifying?

3. Fights Acne And Helps Heal Scars

Himalayan pink salt is a natural antiseptic and disinfectant.

It will kill bacteria on the skin, which then helps to reduce breakouts, especially those dreaded blackheads!

4. Reduces Stress

Yes, please!

Chronic stress is BAD. Deadly in fact!

Emotional stress is a major contributing factor to the six leading causes of death in the United States: cancer, coronary heart disease, accidental injuries, respiratory disorders, cirrhosis of the liver, and suicide.” ~Professor Mohd. Razali Salleh, MD~

Making self-care a priority is a matter of life and death. Click To Tweet

How to Make Pink Sea Salt Body Scrub

The basic recipe is 4 parts pink Himalayan sea salt and 1 part coconut oil.

You can add any essential oil you like or you can leave it out. I picked up this Better Homes and Gardens grapefruit essential oil at Walmart for under $6! It is 100% pure essential oil. ♥

If you’re like me, and really like a strong scent, add about 35-50 drops of essential oil.

Another way I like to practice self-care is by doing my own dip powder nails at home! I found an even better dip powder that I absolutely LOVE! Watch my video! 🙂
