Sea Salt (or any salt) why it works

I have a somewhat different theory on how salt may help acne. First, salt is a disinfectant, so it kills bacteria, this is obviously a key factor. The other poster said that the pus is more solid, but he believed it was an emulsification process, however, I believe it is through a process of osmosis, whereby excess liquid in the abscess is drawn out through the skin (cell membrane) to the higher concentrate of solute (salt) where it helps to consolidate the infection, and thus making the expulsion more efficient. Sorry but this make more sense to me scientifically.
