Mix tapwater with tablespoons of SALT?

Ok so we have all (well mostly) heard that salt can help your skin...well i've been told this soo many times i forget.

So now it leads me to an exsperement...how about washing your face with water + a few spoonfulls of salt?.

yeah i still wash my face with soap...but wait 10mins or so then fill up ya sink with cool water and add some salt...now so far i'm gonna just try 2 full spoonfulls of salt mixed with water to see any diffrence.

Let me know your thourghts or concerns!

this was from my home remedies post: Wash your face twice a day in warm salty water. This should leave your face oil free without aggravating the acne.

i read that from some other forum a long time ago too and i tried it for a week (only in the evening though). i just filled a cereal type of bowl full of warm water and i put a tablespoon of tablesalt in it. i put it all over my face, let it sit for 10 minutes, and then rinsed with cool water. even just doing it once a day with 1 tablespoon really dried my face out and i didn't see any difference. it also seemed a little irritating and it made my face sting for a while. maybe it's just me.....but i wouldn't do that.

You gotta remember that half a teaspoon of salt in 8 oz. of water is plenty. And don't let it sit; maybe it's just a good exfoliator though, by theory, it is solely supposed to dry you out.

the website i had looked at said to put 2 tablespoons in it! i'm glad i didn't do that. it said to let it sit too. the way you say to do it sounds a whole lot better! so maybe u should try it ryan.
