Mineral salts have been used for thousands of years to manage and calm inflamed skin conditions. In ancient Egypt, Cleopatra soaked in the mineral-rich waters of the Dead Sea, which has the highest salt concentration of any body of water in the world. Bath salts were known to soften and smooth the skin, while acting as a veritable “fountain of youth” by decreasing the appearance of fine lines.
Hippocrates encouraged his followers to use salts for their healing properties, to treat sore muscles and even arthritis. Salt was also used in topical solutions to treat skin conditions such as psoriasis and acne.
