With its ability to attract and hold water, salt is a natural moisturizer. And the detoxifying qualities associated with Himalayan pink salt make it a valuable natural toner, perfect for drawing out toxins while infusing your skin with elements such as potassium, magnesium, iron and sodium.
- Put ½ cup filtered water and 2 teaspoons of Himalayan pink salt in a glass jar. Add the lid, and shake until the salt is dissolved.
- Wash your face with a cleanser and warm water, and then splash your face with cold water.
- Use a cotton pad to apply the salt toner to your face, neck and décolletage.
Himalayan pink salt’s detoxifying abilities (when mixed with water) make it incredibly apt at keeping skin clean and fresh. Oily skin is particularly responsive to this homemade toner because salt is a natural antiseptic. Acne-prone skin can benefit from it, too: A daily wash with Himalayan pink salt can help heal pimples and prevent new acne from appearing.
