Hi promiseland and Icthy82- You guys should try the salt baths, they work great.We are having snowy,cold weather here now. Usually, by this time,my skin would be at it's worst.Because of taking regular salt baths,my skin is more in it's summer time condition. I used to use regular table salt and I thought it worked well, but Pauline and some of the others said sea salt was better. I tried the sea salt and they were right- there's a silkiness to the skin that wasn't there with the regular salt. I don't think I'll ever go back to bath oil, because this works better. Promiseland, I don't think that salt baths will dry out your skin.You can actually feel moisture in the water with sea salt in it.
