From Food to Mood

The Benefits of Pink Himalayan Salt


It’s no secret that pink Himalayan salt has health benefits when added to food or filtered water, but did you know it has amazing benefits when it comes to your mood and skin?Here are 10 reasons to incorporate pink Himalayan salt into your routine:

1. Natural, Organic and Sustainable

Pink Himalayan salt is mined in the foothills of the Himalayas. It gets its pink tone from the 84 minerals and elements. Pure Himalayan salt requires no processing.

2. Absorbs Dirt and Toxins

When used as part of a skincare routine, this salt helps to detoxify the skin, while gently exfoliating the dead skin cells that lead to blackheads and acne flare ups.

3. Fights Aging

Pink Himalayan salt is a natural and powerful source of antioxidants. Its antioxidant properties help fight the free radicals that can lead to fine lines and wrinkles.

4. Cell Regeneration

Rich in calcium, magnesium and potassium, this salt helps regenerate new skin cells. It also reduces the redness associated with skin inflammation and helps to balance pH levels.

5. Improves Skin Appearance

Using pink Himalayan salt helps to reduce itching and other skin discomfort, such as eczema and psoriasis. It also helps to increase the production of collagen, making skin look younger and more radiant.

6. Reduces Appearance of Cellulite

Pink Himalayan salt is thought to improve circulation and acts as a toner. By tightening skin and helping to break down fats near the surface of skin, it can help reduce the appearance of cellulite.

7. Helps Skin Hydration

This salt helps to naturally soften water, as well as skin. Because it helps your skin to attract and retain moisture, skin is soft, smooth, and hydrated.

8. Boosts Mood

Because pink Himalayan salt produces negative ions, it helps your body to release more serotonin. This natural body chemical helps relieve anxiety and stress, while boosting energy and mood.

9. Soothes Sore Muscles

Pink Himalayan salt is a natural electrolyte. That, in addition to its magnesium content, makes it a great resource for alleviating muscle cramps, soothing soreness, and bringing balance back to the body.

10. Promotes Sleep

Let’s face it – we live in a positively charged world. Cell phones, televisions, appliances, laptops, and other devices have created so many positively charged ions that it can be hard to unwind, relax and sleep. By using a body bar with pink Himalayan salt or soaking in a salt bath, your body can naturally unwind. In addition, salt lamps emit negative ions while casting a soft glow, which can help create a soothing atmosphere for sleep.
