Moms, in particular, are in need of all the skincare help they can get. While the glow of pregnancy can do wonders for the skin, all of the hormonal changes of pregnancy symptoms and new mom life add up quickly.

Dead Sea Salt

Dead sea salt, as the name implies, is derived from the Dead Sea. Unlike other types of seas, the Dead Sea has an extremely high density of salt compared to other bodies of water. 

Dead sea salt has shown to reduce skin roughness, inflammation, and redness. You'll find dead sea salt in body scrubs, face masks, and even bath products.

Lava Salt

Hawaiian black lava salt is a type of Hawaiian sea salt that blended with activated charcoal and coconut shells. Though it's known as lava salt, it's not actually from a volcano. The name simply draws a connection between the color of lava salt and the dark rock of volcanos found in Hawaii. 

Hawaiian lava salt is perfect in a facial scrub. This salt helps slough off dead skin cells, unclog your pores, and deliver some powerful minerals. Because lava salt has so many natural ingredients, it's a great detoxifier. It's not only a powerful exfoliator, but it helps clear up acne.

Epsom Salt

If you recently gave birth, you've probably heard about Epsom salt. Rather than the typical sodium-based salt, Epsom salt is magnesium-based. This means it's a great source of magnesium, one of the most important minerals. 

While you'll find Epsom salt in beauty and skincare products, it makes the best bath. Adding Epsom salts to your bath water or using a specifically designed Epsom salt bath is a great treat for your skin. For mamas healing after giving birth, it could even aid in the recovery process. 

For postpartum mamas, our SOS Labor Recovery scrub and bath offers the best Epsom salt benefits. 

Pink Himalayan Salt

Pink Himalayan salt is sometimes considered the purest salt available, and it's been used for thousands of years for its health benefits. Found in Pakistan near the foothills of the Himalayas, this salt also has minerals like potassium, magnesium, and calcium. That's what gives it the pink tint. 

Why is pink salt so powerful? Its mineral content makes it especially therapeutic, especially for tired mamas. Using it in a scrub or bath soothes aches and pains, and it also reduces overall inflammation. 

Our Bikini Bottom scrub mixes grapefruit and pink salt to fight stretch marks and blemishes.
