You probably know that consuming too much salt isn’t great for your health. But what about salt in your beauty products? It depends. Salt can dry out your hair, but it can also be a fantastic treatment for oily scalp and dandruff. Similarly, sea salt in facial products can make your skin dry, but is also a great exfoliant.

Aside from products, there are more basic steps to ensure you have beautiful skin. Take off your makeup before bed, put on sunscreen every time you leave the house and get your beauty sleep!
