Cure for back acne #5: Epsom Salt
Epsom salt is a cheap cure for back acne anyone can afford. Epsom salt, otherwise known as magnesium sulfate, gives relief from redness, irritation and itchy skin. Another job it does is to help with the enzymes that regulate various nutrients vital for the health of skin such as zinc, potassium and vitamin D. It helps flush out toxins too.
What to do
Get 1-2 cups of Epsom salt
Warm bath water to soak
Add Epsom salt into the bathtub as the water runs to fill it.
Soak in the bath for 15-30 minutes or more.
Don’t use bath foam or any other soap or chemical in this bath water.
You may use a loofah though gently for better absorption and blood circulation.
After this Epsom salt bath, you should drink a lots of water.
Don’t rub Epsom salt directly into your skin as it is abrasive and may aggravate your back acne by breaking your skin further. As magnesium and calcium, both are competitors when it comes to absorption, take care to have enough of calcium otherwise it may lead to calcium deficiency in your body.
