Benefits Of Salt Water For Skin (and how to use)

4 of 6

Reduce acne with salt water treatment

Apply warm salt water directly to acne to kill the bacteria. If you’re lucky enough to live near the ocean, perhaps you already know this beauty secret. But if you don’t live on the coast, simply whip up some warm salt water the next time you have a breakout. Try mixing one cup of purified water with one tablespoon of sea salt. Use a cotton ball to gently apply salt water to acne and let it dry.

By the way, if you try this treatment and your acne still doesn’t clear up within a day or two, perhaps your diet is the culprit. Make sure to avoid sugar, processed junk, gluten, peanuts, yeast and dairy for awhile to see if your skin clears up. Eat plenty of leafy greens, lean sources of protein and healthy fats like coconut oil and avocados — your skin and waistline will thank you.
