According to Tracey Archer, spa manager at The Spa at Sandy Lane (Barbados), using sea salt to exfoliate prior to wraps helps prepare the skin properly. "Sea salt is very beneficial before a wrap because it removes dead skin cells and allows the pores to open, which helps the products used during the treatment penetrate better," says Archer, who offers several treatments. This treatment is the ideal preparation for pre-tanning, leaving the skin hydrated and silky smooth.
In addition to being an ideal exfoliant, when combined with essential oils, sea salt helps moisturize the skin.Hydrating Helper
Because sea salt contains sulfur, sea salt can also be used in treatments designed to help clients detoxify their bodies.
