What has worked for me: SEA SALT
Posted 05 August 2013 - 12:29 PM
Hi, I have had quite bad back acne/spots for a couple of years. I read on here about dead sea salt and must say it's the best thing I've ever used. Going on holiday in a few weeks and by some miracle it looks like I will be able to go swimming without worrying about my back. About twice a week I bath with around 1 cup of dead sea salts and after showers I have mixed some water with the salt and wet my back and let it dry on it's own. I find it makes you very thirsty so drink plenty of water. Even just sitting around in the evening I wet my hands in the mix of salt/water and rub a bit on my back. Week 4 or 5 now and my back is the best it's been in years, fingers crossed it clears 100% for holiday. Never wrote on a forum before but it's helped me so wanted to give something back. My back has been so so in the past to so bad when I went to the doctor his face alone made me know how bad it got, I've never been so miserable. Even though it's hidden on the back you still know it's there and can't go swimming or sunbathing etc. Once a day I always rub some salt water on my back, so glad I found this site. Hope this helps, don't waste your money on anything else. Good luck
I tried today bath with 1 kilo (2 pounds) of sea salt.The water was salty but when I got out of the tub I licked my skin and I couldn't taste solt at all.
Am I doing something wrong?
I live by the sea and I always have clear skin during the summer,but this bath was nothing like sea,it wasn't even near as solty.I can't swim in the sea right now because its too cold.
After the bath I wasn't dehydrated,it felt just like a regular bath with plain water...
Make sure it's dead sea salt, it's what I use and I only put 1 cup full in. I can taste it for ages after and it makes me very very thirsty. Make sure you soak for at least 20 mins. Dead sea salt contains so many minerals it's the best one I can find. Look on amazon...

It doesn't have to be dead sea salt. Maybe it gets better results, but regular sea salt will do. It's what people bathe in at the beach, and apparently it works.
I have been doing this for almost 2 weeks/ 6 baths. Am I supposed to be seeing any results already?

Well I tried sea salt on my neck for the first time today. I used the Maldon Sea Salt (see photo) by putting a liberal amount in a large glass bowl then adding boiling water and some cold water to cool it down. I splashed the liquid on my neck multiple times over a 10 minute period and just let it dry naturally (no towel). I am sceptical that this will help but let's see what happens. It's worth a try I suppose. My issue is that I have neck acne. The face and back are fine. Just the neck.
Any ideas / comments / suggestions?

So i am a 16 year old girl and have suffered with acne from the age of 11. it has always been an ongoing battle, a battle that has really effected my confidence. i have been on all medication forms, from steroids to creams (only thing i havent tried is racotane). They work for a limited time but my acne eventually comes back. It has improved for a while however has began to get worse again.
I am giving the sea salt method a go and was just wondering, how long roughly did it take to have a major effect because i have an event in 2 weeks which I would like clear skin for and was hoping that by using the sea salt methid, drinking lots of water and avoiding unhealthy foods that by the event it would have cleared.
Please help me out!

Hey guys, My acne is on my face and i've just bought some Dead Sea Bath Salts (http://www.amazon.co...s/dp/B000KU930S) and was thinking of just dissolving the salt in some hot water then rinsing my face 1/2 times daily.
How much salt should i use, the amont of water will be around a sink full amount?

Nice to meet you. I've been lurking a little while trying to figure this out.
I love the idea of Dead Sea salt as a natural solution and have been using it a couple of days. It seems to have bought out a few little critters- did anyone else experience an initial breakout?
Right now I have an awesomely attractive cornflake style scab right on the corner of my lip too from picking ( naughty me) anyone have a suggestion for that? Definitely going to a wedding in 2 days time 😁😁😁 you have to laugh don't you?! Xx

I found dead sea salt to be very drying.
Epsom is perfect for the back, but regular sea salt is better for the face.
It's the most annoying 30 minutes submerging my face under water, but I will do anything. The days that I did do it, my skin felt much better.
