What Is a Salt Facial? Everything You Need to Know
If you’ve ever noticed that you have glowing, more hydrated skin after a day spent swimming at the beach, you’ve stumbled across a powerful and natural beauty ingredient: saltwater. Research suggests that there are many reasons for this, from exfoliation to better hydration, but it’s also likely that salt itself has a big role to play.
While most of us can’t take regular trips to the beach for skincare purposes, modern technology offers the next best thing. A salt facial is a great way to harness the power of salt in no time!
Though it’s often confused with microdermabrasion, salt facials offer a much more in-depth treatment. Not sure what to expect from a salt facial session? Here’s what to know about these restorative treatments.
What Is a Salt Facial?
Salt facials are medical-grade treatments that use natural sea salt to exfoliate the skin. This happens via SaltFacial™ technology and a three-step process to renew and rejuvenate your skin. People with acne, uneven skin, fine lines and wrinkles, sun damage, age spots, and other skin conditions will often notice smoother, more even skin after a salt facial.
How Salt Facials Work
Let’s get down to the details: what happens during a salt facial? As we’ve mentioned above, there are three steps:
Step 1: Restoration via Exfoliation
Your esthetician will use a specialized stand-alone machine to deliver natural sea salt across your skin. Its exfoliating power removes the top layer of your skin without streaking, bruising, or damage.
Step 2: Replenishing via Ultrasound
Next, your esthetician will use ultrasound therapy to increase the circulation of oxygen, blood, and other vital nutrients. It also promotes a healthier skin texture overall while boosting your collagen.
Step 3: Rejuvenation via LED Therapy
The last step uses medical-grade LED light therapy. Depending on your skin tone and needs, your esthetician will adjust this therapy to offer the results you’re looking for, from killing bacteria and reducing inflammation to boosting collagen production.
What Are the Salt Facial Benefits
As you can expect, the star of the show is, in fact, the salt.
Salt offers a huge wealth of natural benefits for the skin. Because it has antibacterial and antimicrobial effects, it’s great for acne and oily skin. It also helps to balance the alkaline levels of your skin for more effective healing.
In addition, salt leaves the skin plump and hydrated, which can minimize the appearance of fine lines. It also boosts collagen production, balances the skin’s natural oil production, and encourages overall cell renewal.
Who Is a Good Candidate?
Here’s some good news: everyone’s a good candidate for a salt facial session!
Salt facials are ideal for any skin type. Regardless of their skin composition, most clients find that these facials offer softer, more hydrated skin and a glowing and dewy complexion.
Even better, because this type of therapy offers one-stop rejuvenation, it’s even great for busy candidates who can’t often slow down for more time-consuming treatments. You can get a lot done in a single session, and you won’t need to come back for continued skin maintenance for another month.
