Salt is the basic ingredient for every food. The quantity might differ but eating saltless food seems impossible. Especially in countries like Pakistan and India, people can never imagine cooking without it. However, it is a misconception that it is just for food. No, it has other benefits too. Here is the list of reasons why salt is not just for cooking;
Solving under eyes problem
Salt and honey are known for their anti-inflammatory properties. It prevents irritation around the eyes. To do so, take two teaspoons of sea salt and four teaspoons, raw honey. Give it a good mix and apply it for 15 minutes around the eyes. Then take cotton pads and soak them into warm water. Wring out the mask gently using the soaked cotton pad.
Part your hair and sprinkle some salt on your scalp. You can take one or two teaspoons. Then massage it wet fingers for 5 to 10 minutes. Once you are done, wash your hair with your regular shampoo and conditioner. You’ll get instant results.
Whitens your teeth
A combination of salt and soda has been known as an old school method for brushing teeth. If you are willing to make your teeth brighter, mix one teaspoon and two teaspoons baking powder. Once mixed, dip a damp toothbrush into the mixture and brush your teeth for 1 minute. The results are immediate.
A mini version of manicure
If going salons look like a huge task for treating your nails, grab it, and do it. Take one teaspoon, one teaspoon baking soda, one teaspoon lemon juice, and a half-cup of lukewarm water. Mix it and soak your hands into it. Make sure the bowl is neither too big nor small. Then wash your hands with lukewarm water.
