This Cult-Favorite Facial Uses Natural Sea Salt!

By Steph Esguerra-Olarte for Belo Medical Group on December 23, 2020

We all know salt is a tasty universal seasoning—that’s why it’s a staple in any kitchen. Just a pinch of this mineral can instantly elevate any dish and make it delectable. The sodium it contains also helps maintain the body’s fluid levels.

But did you know that it also has several skin care benefits? Because natural salts have a high amount of minerals like calcium, magnesium, and potassium, it can help brighten the skin, lessen inflammation, as well as boost the skin’s strength. It also helps stimulate good blood circulation in the scalp, soothes puffy eyes, whitens teeth naturally, and works as a natural mouthwash. 

The perfect all-natural beautifying agent

Because natural salts have so many beautifying properties, it’s also a perfect component in facials. Belo is actually the exclusive provider in the Philippines of the popular treatment called the Salt Facial, an imported treatment popular in Beverly Hills, which can address multiple skin problems like acne, eczema, fine lines, stretch marks, and signs of aging. Natural salts make great exfoliators, and what’s great is that it can get rid of dead skin without causing bruising or hyperpigmentation.

Here’s how the Belo Salt Facial works. A machine first distributes natural sea salt on the skin using positive pressure, which helps to let the air flow out to prevent infection-causing bacteria. The sea salt, which is naturally coarse in texture, is used to perform micro-exfoliation by creating a minor injury on the skin. As salt is inherently alkaline, it makes the skin more alkaline, promoting faster skin healing.

After the distribution of all-natural sea salt, a high-frequency current is used to cleanse the face. Mandelic or Glycolic acid is then used to treat inflammatory acne and hyperpigmentation. Next, a stem cell-rich gel is applied, deeply penetrating the skin to deliver antioxidants via ultrasound. The ultrasound helps to enhance blood and oxygen flow, along with the absorption of products. Lastly, high-intensity LED light therapy is briefly applied to the skin to speed up its recovery.

Quick, painless, and effective

All of these components work together for a fast and pain-free treatment. Customers who avail of the Belo Salt Facial immediately experience improved skin texture after the session, plus, they don’t have to deal with any irritation or any downtime afterwards. It’s recommended to get the facial done every one to two weeks.

The Belo Salt Facial is safe for any skin type. But since it’s naturally antibacterial, it’s perfect for acne-prone girls. It reveals a rejuvenated inner skin layer, removes deep-seated dirt, and leaves the face ultra-hydrated and bacteria-free. It’s important to note, though, that micro-exfoliation is not the same as microdermabrasion. Microdermabrasion is a non-invasive procedure that helps rejuvenate skin tone and texture using a special abrasive applicator. The removed dead skin is then suctioned off. 

It’s no wonder celebrities and personalities like Lovi Poe, Jane De Leon, and Sue Ramirez swear by the Belo Salt Facial. It uses natural sea salt, the session is fast and painless, plus, there’s no downtime! With fresh, hydrated, and nourished new skin, it leaves customers with an unmistakable glow and dewy face.
