Why Your Next Spa Treatment Should Feature Salt

The pantry staple touts quite a few skin-healthy benefits

It’s stocked in everyone’s pantry, and it turns out: salt is far more versatile than you think. When applied topically, it can help exfoliate, retain moisture, reduce wrinkles, and combat acne-causing bacteria. Below, four luxury spa resorts showcasing how skin-healthy salt is for treatment.

Sports Enthusiast Salt Scrub at Sunriver Resort
After playing a round of golf at our luxury hotel, book this specialty spa treatment, which was expressly developed to help athletes recover faster. The salt scrub promotes healthy blood circulation, while the hydrotherapy showers flush away lactic acid. A Sports Recovery Massage Oil is then applied all over to complete the session.

Terranea Seaside Renewal at Terranea Resort
Featuring sea salt harvested from the resort’s coasts, this treatment focuses on re-mineralizing  your body. Naturally rich in magnesium, zinc, and potassium, the salt scrub replenishes these necessary elements back in to your skin. A massage with Red Algae Lotion helps seal in the skin-healthy benefits of the exfoliation.

Salt Of The Sea Massage at Cliff House Maine
One of the most popular treatments at this iconic resort perched on the majestic bluffs of coastal Maine is this signature massage, which showcases hand-carved salt stones sourced from the ocean. They’re warmed up, then paired with specially chosen oils to help fully calm both the body and mind.

Heavenly Milk Soak at The Spa at Paradise Point 
After soaking in a deep wooden tub for thirty minutes, you’ll emerge relaxed, pampered, and with baby-soft skin. The unique combination of mineral sea salts and coconut milk help to both detox and moisturize the body.
