Acne, the scourge of the teen years, is a common skin ailment generally occuring on the face, back, chest, neck or shoulder resulting in pimples which can sometimes cause scarring.
Although there are many medications and creams that are sold to treat acne, a drug free approach would be the use of salt therapy or halotherapy. At our salt cave here in Vermont, the micro-climate of a Polish salt mine is recreated utilizing the purest form of Polish rock salt with its 84 minerals. Salt in and of itself is one of the oldest natural anti-bacterials, killing bacteria and toxins whilst also drying out the underlying pimple.
Salt soap bars are also available so you can continue the treatment at home. Just wet the skin and rub the salt bar over the area. Rinse and dry. Should you wish to make a salt toner to apply after cleansing the area just add together 1 tablespoon of Polish pink salt , 1 tablespoon of apple cider vinegar and a drop of tea tree oil (make sure you are not allergic to tea tree oil, if yes, use lavender or rose oil). Add to 1/2 cup of spring water, mix and you have your home made toner to provide an all natural, drug free way to treat acne.
