Anti-Dandruff Himalayan Pink Salt Scrub
One of the most common hair conditions during the winter months is dandruff. If you are looking for a DIY scalp treatment to eliminate dandruff for good, then look no further. You guessed it, Himalayan Premier Pink Salt is excellent for absorbing excess oil and preventing the recurrence of dandruff. This homemade scrub is also ideal for using year-round for removing product build-ups such as mousse, dry shampoos or hair gels.
Here’s what you need for this scalp scrub:
- 1 Tbs. shampoo
- ½ Tbsp. melted coconut oil
- 1 Tbs. apple cider vinegar
- 1 Tsp. baking soda
- 15 drops grapefruit essential oil
- ¼ Cup Herbion Himalayan Pink Salt
Pop in the shower and slightly wet your hair. Squeeze out access water and use the scrub as desired by rubbing all over the scalp in gentle circular motions. Do not be too harsh as you do not want to aggravate the skin. Since apple cider vinegar can sting a little, you can add a little water to dilute it. Do not expect this scrub to work as a shampoo as it will not lather. Start application from the hairline to the nape of the neck. Then make your way back towards the hairline. Leave the DIY mixture to sit on the hair for a minute or two before rinsing off with shampoo and conditioner as usual.
Himalayan Salt for Feet
The cold winter months can take a toll on your hands and feet, causing dryness and cracked heels. Whether you are sporting boots outdoors, or running errands in house slippers indoors, knowing your hands and feet look prim can instantly boost your body confidence. With the high probability of a second lockdown and the spread of Covid-19 cases, it is best to avoid going to public places, including the salon. Instead, stay safe at home and take out your manicure and pedicure kits for an at-home spa-like mani-pedi experience.
Start by cleaning, trimming and shaping your nails as desired. Go ahead remove any old nail polish you may have applied. Get a small tub, fill it with warm water and add 1/8 cup of Himalayan Pink Salt to each gallon of water. You can also add lemon to this for brightening effects and magnesium flakes for pain relief, which is much-needed after a long tiring day. This mixture pampers your feet and relaxes them while softening the heels, which is excellent for removing dead skin cells.
Soak your feet for 15 minutes, then follow up with a homemade Himalayan foot scrub. Below is the Himalayan salt scrub recipe:
- 10 Tbsp. pure coconut oil in solid form
- 10 drops of peppermint essential oil (for a festive touch)
- 20 drops grapefruit essential oil
- 10 drops of cinnamon essential oil
- 5 Tbs. Herbion Himalayan Pink Salt
- 1 Tsp. Baking Soda
- With an electric beater, whisk coconut oil until it turns white and fluffy.
- Now add all the ingredients and store in a jar.
Take a scoop or two of the DIY salt foot scrub and apply it to your feet, concentrating on your heels and any other dry skin that may need extra attention. This all-natural scrub sloughs off dead skin cells for soft, smooth feet. Once done, wash off with water, apply a generous amount of foot cream and let it fully absorb. Then finish off by putting on cozy soft socks. Wearing socks seals in moisture for longer and makes your feet extra soft. Similarly, you can soak your hands, scrub, moisturize and paint your nails for an at-home manicure.
Himalayan Pink Salt Bath Benefits
Nothing beats a warm bath on winter nights. Prepare to pamper yourself. Light some scented candles for aromatherapy, draw a warm bath and add Herbion Pink Salt to it. Pink salt can extract toxins from the skin and tissues. As you soak in the warm water, the salt leaves the skin feeling nourished and refreshed. The minerals in the salt recharge the body so this bath works as a pick me up. Moreover, the salt stores in the upper layer of the skin and creates a natural film by plumping it up, thereby preventing dryness.
Here’s how you can enjoy a DIY bath soak right now. Fill up the bathtub with warm water. Choose temperature according to what feels comfortable to you. Add ½ cup salt in ½ tub of water. Mix it well and soak in the bath for at least 15 to 20 minutes. To amplify relaxation, add in a few drops of essential oils such as lavender oil. It has sleep-inducing properties; therefore, it will help you relax and sleep better. Remember, it is crucial to stay hydrated when taking a warm bath; therefore, always drink a glass of water before and after taking a warm bath.
During your bath, you can also use the foot scrub mentioned above to exfoliate your body. Use gentle circular motions to promote blood circulation. Always pat dry with a towel and moisturize damp skin using a good quality thick moisturizer. Moisturizers that worked in summers may not perform so well during winter months. Therefore, it is best to use a lotion with a thicker consistency, such as a body butter.
We hope these homemade scrubs work just as well for you as they do for us. In case you feel hungry while scrubbing, feel free to grab a quick bite to eat of snacks made with Himalayan Pink Salt.
