There is a new beauty superhero: Himalayan pink salt. Since we’ve learnt to know the reasons why exfoliation is the best beauty routine as we step into the spring, we are also bringing in the new gentle formulas to opt for when doing this.
It happens that Himalayan pink salt is no longer just a trendy food ingredient. It also can be found in our beauty product arsenal from body washes to bath soaks to wave sprays. Mineral- and vitamin-rich Himalayan pink salt not only naturally exfoliates, it delivers all necessary good-for-your-skin stuff your complexion needs.
