How To Use Bath Salts?

Using bath salts is an inexpensive way to take care of yourself and relaxing your mind that has multiple tabs open. And honestly, who doesn't enjoy a warm and relaxing bath after a long day? Here's how you can use bath salt in three amazing ways.

For Relaxing Those Muscles

Bath salts can help you relax those muscles and relieve you of pain in no time. And if you have had a hard day at work or commuted via public transport, then this is the perfect day to take a break and chill.

- Fill your bathtub with lukewarm water.

- Add 2-3 drops of a disinfecting liquid (cause Miss Corona is still in the air).

- Add 2 cups of your fave bath salts and relax. You can even have a drink because you deserve it.

This is also great to relax painful muscles after a run or hitting the gym. Just close your eyes and soak it in.

To Relive Of Dry Skin

If you have super dry skin or wish to get rid of itchy skin caused by mosquito bites, then you have to try this today.

- In your bathtub, add 1-2 cups of bath salts for sensitive skin.

- Next, add a few drops of lavender and olive oil.

- Soak your body for at least ten minutes before stepping out.

- Do not forget to moisturize from head to toe thereafter.

This is perfect to get rid of skin inflammation or if you have eczema or urticaria.

Foot Soak

You can also use bath salts to get rid of severe pain, if you have athlete's foot and even to treat toenail fungus and even to eliminate foot odour.

- In a small tub, add warm water and then 2 tbsps of bath salts.

- Soak your feet and just relax. You can also add a few drops of tea tree oil as it helps kill bacteria and it perfect if you have foot fungus.

- You can do this 2-3 times a week if you suffer from severe foot or heel pain.
