Question sea/salt water gets rid of acne

I honestly think natrual salt water from the ocean is one of the best things going to get rid of acne. It's a natrual astringent, when I went swimming every day when I was in greece my acne vanished in a few days. I think the salt water from eastern countrys is best, that has a high level of salt in it and is free from polution. next time I am on holiday I might bottle some of it.

I am suprised that no companies have brought out any sea/salt water topical solutions to be honest. ?????????????????????????????? ???????????????????????????????????????? ????????????????????????

Re: sea/salt water gets rid of acne

I find this is true too. I always clear up if I go on vacation to a nice beach.

Re: sea/salt water gets rid of acne

There are products out there with stuff from the dead sea. I use ALBA cleanser, toner, and lotions and they all contain minerals, etc from the sea.

I've always noticed this too. There was a period of 5 years or so where I would go to the Gulf of Mexico every year. EVERY time I went my acne would COMPLETELY clear up. I don't know if it was the exposure to the sun, salt water, or the air/atmosphere. I know that I never really went under the water when i was in the ocean, so I don't think it is the salt water.

Re: sea/salt water gets rid of acne

Make some clean salt water at home and dab it on with a cottonball. See how it works an let us know if it was the salt.

Re: sea/salt water gets rid of acne

you can buy it at any health food store. its pretty inexpensive...just a few bucks for maybe 1/4 of a pound. its lasted maybe 2 months now?? i use only a tiny amount. i would assume normal sea salt would work but the one that i got was a little "damp" to begin with and it is not white...more like a sand colored, grayish, beige color. the reason it is still a bit wet is that its not completely dried out and refined. don't use table salt...that's devoid of minerals.

Re: sea/salt water gets rid of acne

I've noticed this too but i really think it's the sun that does it in conjunction with the salt water.
