I first came across bath salts about a year ago when a family friend recommended putting them in my bath to help with my dry skin and eczema. After a little research I came across Westlab and decided to give them a go. Well, I haven’t looked back!
I’m not going to lie, at first I was a bit scared of using them because I thought they might dry my skin out further. You know when you have a bag of salty crisps and your mouth is dry as a bone? I thought my skin would have the same reaction but it was the complete opposite, especially with the Dead Sea salt. This is the soothing option of salts that Westlab produce and it does exactly what it says on the bag. It is suitable for eczema and psoriasis prone skin with the promise to soften and soothe any dry, itchy patches. It’s fragrance free (yas) and it’s packed full on minerals (yas yas).
This stuff works. It is a simple, fuss free product that has a positive effect on the skin after one use. I put around 3 handfuls into a warm, not hot, bath and soak for 20 minutes. I have found that is it also great for my scalp eczema so I even wash my hair in it! It calms down any hot, itchy, irritated skin after one soak so I especially like to use it when I can feel a flare coming on. It really does help stop it in its tracks! What else I really like about Westlab’s products is that they only source high quality salts so no addatives, no unnecessary bulk, just salt that is rich in minerals to benefit the skin. Dead Sea salt has been a huge part in healing my skin over the past year and it is a staple in my bathroom cabinet!
If you fancy giving them a try then you can pick up a bag of Dead Sea salt from http://www.westlabsalts.co.uk
