Exfoliating Facial Sea Salt Scrub

From the WebMD Archives

You can use sea salt as an exfoliant. Don't try this with table salt -- you need the coarser granules of sea salt for this recipe. Apple cider vinegar acts as an astringent. Mint may help with inflammation.

1/8 cup sea salt (table variety, not coarse grain)

Drizzle of apple cider vinegar (non-filtered organic is best)

1 to 2 teaspoons finely chopped mint, preferably fresh

Combine salt and mint in a small bowl. Drizzle in enough vinegar to soften the mixture and stir to form a thick paste. Gently massage into skin. Rinse well with warm water. Refrigerate any remaining mixture for up to 3 days.
