Today is the last of my three Hello Skin posts. If you haven’t read them already catch up on the other two here and here. So Hello Skin is an online company specialising in skin care for acne, eczema and psoriasis. But there are lots of other goodies for “normal” skin types too. The Westlab Epsom Salts are something everyone can use.
Who should use Hello Skin Westlab Epsom Salts?
People have been using Epsom Salts for hundreds of years. They are well-known as a bath additive to help relax muscles and recover after exercise. But they can also help people with dry skin, sunburn and insect bites. Westlab Epsom Salts, made from magnesium sulphate, create a soothing and detoxifying bath that aids general skin health and wellbeing. You can add them to baths or use them as a foot soak or exfoliator too.
How to use Westlab Epsom Salts
- In the bath – add 1/2 to 1 cup to hot running water.
- As a foot soak – add 1/2 cup to warm water.
- As an exfoliator – massage in to wet skin after a bath or shower.
- For bites, stings and sunburn – mix salts in to cool water and soak a compress in the water.
My review of Westlab Epsom salts from Hello Skin
Although I have heard so many people raving about Epsom salts I had never got around to trying them out for myself. The Westlab Epsom Salts are easy to fit in to my bath routine. They dissolve really quickly in the bath water and have no scent. As soon as you step in to the water you can feel how moisturising the salts are. A long soak in the salt bath really does help relax and ease aching muscles too.
I am using about half a cup of the salts which definitely fully dissolves, along with a bath bomb to add some colour and fragrance. My sister has said adding too much makes it a bit gritty under your bottom though!
Afterwards my skin is left really moisturised and soft and I do feel really relaxed.
After emptying the bath there is no residue left in the bottom and they don’t leave the bath slippery. There’s nothing worse than getting in the shower after bath oils and it finding out it’s a skating rink is there?
I really like these and they are a great add on to my usual relaxing baths.
You can buy the Westlab Epsom Salts from Hello Skin here and they are £3.40 for a 1kg bag or £7.99 for a 2kg bag.
