Rich in minerals: Sea salt, which is available at most health-food stores, contains a higher mineral content than regular table salt, has not been bleached with chemicals and is believed to be more effective in a bath. Sea salt is obtained by evaporating seawater that has been purified and filtered multiple times. It consists of about 80 percent sodium chloride and 20 percent minerals and trace elements. Salt that comes from the Dead Sea is especially rich in potassium, magnesium, iodine, bromine and sulfur. These substances remove waste products from the body and can help protect against cellulite and edema in the tissues of the skin. Coarse- and fine-grained forms of sea salt are available; both types are effective when added to a therapeutic bath.
Baking Soda for enhanced effects: Adding bicarbonate of soda (baking soda) to a sea-salt bath can leave the skin feeling clean and smooth. Baking soda also enhances the stimulating effect on the circulatory system, provides a refreshing quality and helps soothe skin irritations and itchiness. For fizzy bubbles, you can add 3-4 effervescent antacid tablets to your bathwater before stepping in. The tablets will not harm your skin and simply add to a "spa" effect. Baking soda can be purchased at pharmacies and grocery stores; carbonated bath tablets are available in some bath shops.
