Sea salt kills bacteria that cause acne and exfoliates impurities and excess oil that clog skin pores

Don’t you just hate it when you have to deal with unsightly acne all the time? You may want flawless skin, but what can you do when small bumps and whiteheads keep popping up on your face? Acne is developed when your skin is excessively oily. The excess oil clogs the pores of your skin and traps impurities, which leads to bacterial growth that causes acne. The main triggers of oily skin include hormonal imbalance, poor diet, and improper hygiene. You can control excess oil production by maintaining proper hygiene and by consuming nutritional food. However, in order to treat acne, you should use natural ingredients. Sea salt is one such ingredient that effectively treats acne. It kills bacteria that cause acne, exfoliates impurities and excess oil that clog skin pores, promotes the growth of new skin cells, prevents skin infections, restores the skin’s natural pH and oil balance, and helps keep skin smooth. Here are a few ways to use sea salt to treat acne.
