Description

Used for their health-giving properties for hundreds of years, Epsom Salts are well-known as a bath additive to help relax tired muscles and recover after sport and exercise. But they can also help people with dry skin, sunburn, and insect bites, and can even be used as spa treatments and for pedicures.

The rich mineral compound found in Westlab Epsom Salt is magnesium sulphate, which occurs naturally in select places around the world. It creates a soothing and detoxifying bath that aids general skinl health and wellbeing.

The salts are pure, pharmaceutical grade standard, with no additives. They can be used for a foot bath as well as for a full body bath.

Ingredients

Westlab Epsom Salt contains only magnesium sulfate – no additives.

Directions

For a standard bath, around ½-1 cup (approx 100g-250g) of Westlab Epsom Salt should be dissolved into bath water of temperature 37-39°C. Soak in the bath for around 20 minutes, once or twice per week. Pat the skin dry with a towel.

For a footbath, add ½-2 cups (approx 100g-500g) of the salts to 5 litres of warm water and dissolve. Relax and soak the feet for 20 minutes. If required, add more warm water to the tub.  Rinse off and pat dry afterwards.

For bee stings, mosquito bites, mild sunburn, and other summer ailments, soak a cotton washcloth in cold water that has been mixed with 2 tablespoons per cup of Epsom Salts. Then apply as a compress to the skin.

You can even use these salts as an exfoliant by massaging them over wet skin after your bath or shower.

Precautions

Westlab Epsom Salt should be used by adults only and kept away from children, like all medicines. Store them in a dry place, as they absorb moisture easily.

Keep away from the eyes and, if there is contact, flush out with clean water. If irritation persists, medical attention may be needed.

If you are suffering from a medical condition or have very sensitive skin, consult with a medical professional before using these salts. Do not use if your skin is broken or weeping.

Pregnant or breastfeeding women should also check with their doctor before use.

Side Effects

The use of Westlab Epsom Salt is not associated with any major side effects, unless you are allergic to magnesium sulfate. There are no reported interactions with other medicines.

Research & Evidence

For people with Psoriasis

HelloSkin's experts were unable to find clinical data on the use of Westlab Epsom Salt in people with psoriasis. However, bathing with a magnesium-enriched Dead Sea salt solution has been shown to significantly improve measures of the skin barrier function in volunteers with atopic dry skin (1).
