Sea salt is becoming more and more accepted as a much better substitute for processed table salt . Sea salt is natural and not stripped of all its nutrients, like calcium, magnesium, potassium and sodium. But did you know it's also good for your hair, skin and nails?

The benefits of using sea salt outside the body

Natural sea salt that contains such good nutrients just has to be good on the outside of your body, too, right? Right! Here are some of the ways that sea salt can benefit your body from the outside.

Hair - sea salt removes excess oil from your hair and makes your waves and curls softer. It also helps get rid of dandruff by absorbing excess oil and moisture to prevent fungal growth.

Skin - cleans pores and balances the production of oil which will help prevent acne and breakouts. You can even use it as a skin exfoliator to remove dead skin cells and leave your skin fresh and gleaming.

Nails - sea salt mixed with baking soda and lemon juice will remove cuticles, yellowing, and dullness from your nails.

Teeth - why spend hundreds of dollars on teeth whitening products when you can use sea salt. Sea salt mixed with baking soda not only whitens teeth naturally but also kills bacteria that causes bad breath.
