Epsom Salt? Huh?

Yesterday's Chicago Tribune had an article Tanya forwarded to me as appropriate for BFF Beauty Bag.

It's titled, "If It Works Well for Heidi Klum" and goes on to say that epsom salt can provide pre- and post-party relief.

Read the article by clicking on the title above. First person to try one of the three ideas gets a prize AND a guest blog here!


  1. This is one of my mom's beauty secrets. She picked it up in England and has been a big fan of Epsom salts for EVERYTHING ever since. I used to bathe in them after a tough soccer game and they seemed to help me relax and not be as sore the next day. Now I always use them after a long run in a nice warm footbath. If your feet are sore, mix epsom salts with a few drops of tea tree oil and it can't be beat! The fact that they're extremely cheap at the local drugstore is just an added bonus.

  2. COME ON! Really?? Have you tried it on your face?

  3. Seriously. In fact, I was inspired by this yesterday and I had a bath with epsom salts last night... and it was awesome! As for on my face, not so much. I don't think that would be very good for my face. Too grainy and my face is super sensitive.
