WHY SALT WATER?

Inspired by the salty seas of the Aegean, each Santorini Skin product is underpinned by the benefits of sea water. As cited by countless sources, the benefits of salt water are countless, we love this article via Style Caster who highlight just a handful of benefits of salt water. 

It treats a wide variety of skin conditions.
Sea salt is packed with healthy skin-friendly minerals like magnesium, calcium, and potassium, which is exactly what makes it so beneficial to various skin conditions. It absorbs the toxins in the body and on the skin, including acne-causing bacteria, and works to treat infections and encourage the healing process. Salt’s natural moisture-reducing abilities can also help to regulate the overproduction of oil that leads to clogged pores. Eczema sufferers also find great success with salt water, particularly Epsom salt: Magnesium is an anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial mineral that not only eases itching, but also draws the moisture from eczema-causing bacteria and fungi to hinder its development.

It acts as a gentle exfoliant.
The exfoliating powers of salt aren’t just limited to its scrubby physical properties: The minerals in the salt itself help to open pores for deeper cleansing, as well as encourage blood flow, and the purifying benefits better enable your skin to absorb moisturizer and other treatments. If you have particularly sensitive skin, salt scrubs are best used on the body rather than the face, where the thinner skin is more easily aggravated.

It relieves sore muscles.
Salts have long been heralded as a natural,  effective way to alleviate aches and pains, thanks to the magnesium that becomes absorbed through the skin as you soak in an salt bath. As a mineral, magnesium helps the body’s systems to regulate and balance, particularly as it relates to muscle and nerve function.

SANTORINI SKIN'S AEGEAN SEA SOAK is the perfect way to soothe away soreness, and is further enriched with Dead Sea & Himilayan Pink Salts.
