salt water

Hello all!

Im wondering if washing your face with custom-made salt water everyday is healthy for ones facial skin.

BTW, I think I have oily skin.

Custom-made is normal tap water (or mineral drinking water) mixed with table salt or cooking rock salt.

Any feedback will be appreciated,

Re: salt water

hi, It's up to you about using salt water but - I made my own solution using filterd water and natrual sea salt/rocks crystals.

I would wash my face then I would put on a light mouistriser let it absorb in to my skin and then splash the self made salt water on my face/neck afterwards....

but after a few days it made me break out, and the spots were really big and painfull to some people say salt can clear there acne but it didnt work for me although when I go swimming aboroad salt water can clear you're skin a treat.

I bought one of then red n blue face lamps last week for £200 of a uk website, I think it maybe working but it's early days yet and you have to put you're face closer to it then they say for it to be effective....In another week or so I will put a post on to say how effective it really is.

regards beat box kid

Re: salt water

I think it has to be sea salt, you can get it at a health food store.

Re: salt water

yea i've been thinking about sea salt because everytime i go to the beach and swim in the ocean my acne reduces dramatically. i think it's the sea salt that kills all the bacteria on the face.
