I've tried searching for the whereabouts of EPSOM Salts in the UK.. but I can't find them. I would have put this in UK regimen supplies but I don't think it's particularly relavent to the acne.org BP regimen.

Hmm. Well I'm presuming you are consering using epsom salts for liver flushing/colon cleansing or something of the like.
I believe that straightforward sea salt can be used instead of these epsom salts in the procedures - I have used sea salt in salt water flushes instead of epsom salts and have still got good results.
Also, sea salt is cheaper, and more readily available (in Sainsbury's or Tesco!)

You can buy epsom salts in a lot of chemists and places like Holland&Barrat.
Currently recovering from prolonged moderate breakout

Current Regim:

Suplements: zinc/multi-vitamin/fish oil/ACV tablets/vitamin C/B5
Topicals:coconut oil/Jojoba oil/ACV AM and PM, washing with olive oil soap, BP AM and PM
Current status: couple of small angry white heads which is annoying but they clear up pretty quickly, mainly red marks and scars though

Okay, cool.

I tried using salt water in a basic salt water flush but it didn't work, so I have to use something to get rid of the salt I absorbed. EPSOM salt is a laxative so will hopefully flush out any problems.

Huh? Whatever it is that you're trying to do, STOP. With all due respect, It's foolish and is not based on valid science.

I've used epsom salts in the bath to detox but I'd never drink them, they're way too harsh. If you want something to flush your system try golden linseed, you can get them from holland and barrett.
