    I KNOW MANY POST WERE PUT ABOUT THIS.
    I'M GOING TO GET EPSOM SALTS FROM MY PHARMACY TODAY. THEY HAD TO ORDER THAT BECAUSE THEY DON'T SELL IT.
    A FRIEND OF MINE TOLD ME THAT SHE USED EPSOM SLATS A LONG TIME AGO AND SHE HAD VERY BAD SKIN PROBLEMS.
    ANYONE EXPERIENCED SKIN PROBLEMS WITH THAT?
    PLEASE LET ME KNOW SOMETHING ABOUT IT.

    AS SOME OF YOU KNOW I CAN'T TAKE PAIN KILLERS SO I'M TRYING TO FIND OTHER WAYS TO EASE THE PAIN.

    LOVE,

    The salts have caused no problems for me. It is supposed to be good for skin problems, psoriasis, etc.

    I always rinse off in cool water after the soak is finished.

    I really hope this helps. It has been a life saver for me.

    Hi, again, Olga,

    I've used Epsom Salts for soaking in warm water for aching muscles and pain in my back and legs. It doesn't bother my skin at all. As in the other posts, just rinse off well.

    If you experience any skin problems, I hear one of the best things you can use is to massage Olive Oil into your skin. My hair stylist gives a lot of perms and uses chemicals in mixing colors, and he gets rashes and rough places on his hands. His doctor told him to use Olive Oil, and it cleared it right up!

    Lots of hugs,
    Lew

    I just had one last night!

    I have always had dry skin, ezema, psoriasis...I find that the salts pull water up to the surface (kind of like going to get a salt scrub at a spa, or even swiming in the ocean) After my bath, I may give myself a cool rinse, or just get out of the tub...then put on a good moisturizer while my skin is still damp, to lock in the moisture...I use lanolin, but olive oil, or coconut oil is good too.

    good for skin problems is calcium bentonite clay. Here's a link to a good resource page for learning about clay therapy.
