GENERAL DESCRIPTION:

Bathe away the bad stuff by treating yourself to a bath containing Epsom salts, which contain magnesium that’s deficient in many of us, and baking soda, which is a pH balancing agent. To perform a toxin elimination bath:

1. Run a bath as hot as you can tolerate

2. Pour in a one-pound bag of Epsom salts and a one-pound box of bicarbonate of soda

3. Use a natural loofa to open up your pores by gently scrubbing the solution all over your body

ROLE FOR ANTI-AGING:

Toxin elimination baths help to remove toxins from the body, while cleansing and revitalising the skin at the same time. They also improve circulation and stimulate the growth of new cells. Some studies have suggested that salt baths may also improve cellulite and aid weight loss, however neither of these benefits are proven.

THERAPEUTIC DAILY AMOUNT: Some experts recommend taking a toxin elimination bath once a week.

SIDE EFFECTS/CONTRAINDICATIONS:

People with high blood pressure should not take toxin elimination baths.
