If you want to keep your skin healthy, using bath salts crystals will help you achieve that, by replenishing the lost nutrients after every bath or shower, keeping pores clean, getting rid of dead skin cells and balancing the pH level of the body.

They do not cause any irritation or other problems, so they are ideal for people who have sensitive skin, including acne-prone individuals, or the elderly.
Using Dead Sea salt in bath salts can also help improve the health of the kidneys, improving blood circulation as well as helping remove toxins and waste products from the blood.
