Find Out Why Himalayan Salt Massage Balls Are Amazing:
Long touted as a cure-all by lifestyle influencers and naturopaths, pink Himalayan salt contains a multitude of vitamins and nutrients like potassium, iron and calcium that work wonders topically.
What are Himalayan Salt Massage Balls for?
Salt therapy has been long known as halotherapy and is an alternative treatment that involves breathing in fine salt particles that improve breathing issues such as bronchitis, asthma and your regular cough but also halotherapy can involve using salt as a whole body treatment for issues such as dermatitis and eczema.
There is also Thalassotherapy that first became known in the late 18th century for its health benefits when Doctors would prescribe people to swim in the ocean or relocate closer to the coastline due to the fine ocean mist helping relieve multiple health concerns and that swimming in the ocean would help relieve skin conditions and make people feel more relaxed.
Taking these therapeutic approaches and making them available for an at-home spa treatment, Himalayan Salt Massage Balls are a great addition to your pregnancy skincare regimen.
