It has been observed that sea salt can make the skin healthier and in some cases can help heal small and superficial wounds and injuries. As it acts as a natural and gentle "peeling" the chances of skin infections are reduced.

As for the children, pediatricians report that many children with acne on the face and body improve their clinical appearance thanks to sea salt. Other children who suffer from skin allergies most often improve during the summer with sea baths. All of this shows that sea salt increases the resistance of skin cell membranes and makes it more durable.

Therefore, one can leave the salt on body and not rush to rinse it immediately, not requiring washing with soap, but simply using water.

The salt should not remain on body for many hours, as it causes dehydration.
