Sea Water!

After I've been in sea water, my skin looks much better for the rest of the day. I have noticed this for many many years.

I have tended to find that it overall is not beneficial to acne cos it tends to cause a large bump to appear about 4 days later around my chin. This could just be me but I have repeatedly noticed this.

I've read that salt water is good for acne cos it slows down bacterial reproduction. I'm thinking of keeping a supply of salt water at home and applying it before I go to work!

Has anyone tried it or have any thoughts?

Re: Sea Water!

i use celtic sea salt and water to wash my face after light exfoliation and find that it helps to draw out pimples and heals my skin faster. it might be all the minerals found in sea salt that contribute to faster healing times.
