5 Genius Beauty Uses for Salt

Yellow Teeth and Bad Breath Can Be A Thing of the Past

Yellow Teeth and Bad Breath Can Be a Thing of the Past
These are some really clever and handy uses for salt and also inexpensive beauty treatments too!
Exfoliate your face, body, and even you feet.
For smoother skin- reach for the salt! When you are in the shower, just rub crushed sea salt all over to remove the dead skin. It can even improve your circulation. If you suffer from dandruf or flaky scalp - massage it into your scalp and it will help remove it. 
Fights Acne
As salt is a natural exfoliator, it can help clean your pores and reduce skin oiliness. Be careful not to use near any cuts and always avoid your eyes. A great tip is to mix it with olive or coconut oil and make a paste. It will be less harsh on your skin.
Brightens Up Nails
With all your racing around, you might have forgotten to use a base coat if you paint your nails. This often causes yellow nails. By mixing one teaspoon of salt, baking soda and lemon juice together and dipping your nails in, you can then buff away those stains. 
Whitens Your Teeth
Combine one part salt and two parts baking soda and using a clean toothbrush scrub it on your teeth adding some water. The paste is known to remove plaque and brighten teeth.
Breath Freshener
Salt can help reduce bad breath. Add 1/8 teaspoon of salt and 1/4 teaspoon of baking soda to one cup of water. This will help fight stinky breath and it acts as a disinfectant and kills any bacteria that might be contributing to any smell.
