At BSC we offer a number of various treatments for teenagers sffering with this affliction.
It could include a teen facial, nutritional evaluation and a treatment plan that consists of salt soap. Solay ( a salt and water solution that is made at home, and which helps to clean out the lining of the digestive system) Very often salt baths, salt halo therapy and a change of diet could help hormones to settle, the digestive system to clean itself and the skin to clear.
We understand that this ia a very emotional time for young teenagers, however we do encourage a natural approach before resorting to extreme medication. In our experience a
drug free approach using HaloTherapy and dry salt therapy is the best. This is a well known holistic and natural alternative. Salt itself is one of the oldest natural anti-bacterial methods of killing bacteria and drawing out toxins which helps to dry out pimples while still soothing the surrounding skin. Exposure to the salt air in our cave can help to reduce inflammation of the skin soothing while reducing redness and calming itchiness.

The function of the integumentary system
Our skin is a very complex and intelligent organ that has many important functions. It is the largest organ and, like the respiratory system, it has a major role to protect and defend the body against bacteria, viruses and other microbes. It also excretes wastes, regulates temperature and prevents dehydration by controlling the level of perspiration. It houses sensory receptors that detect pain, sensation and pressure.
Why dry salt therapy for skin care
Quality and aesthetic appearance of the skin has an important aspect of how we are viewed by others and can have a profound psycho-emotional impact on how we feel about ourselves. As we age, our skin is the first organ to show the impact of time and life. Dry salt therapy is an excellent solution to improve the overall quality and appearance of the skin. Regular Halotherapy can be the most important tool that aids the healthy aging process of the skin. The truth is that healthy and glowing skin is beautiful at any age.
How dry salt therapy improves the integumentary system
Scientific research has confirmed that the micro-particles of salt have a beneficial influence to the integument system (skin protective layer) and hairs providing healing and cosmetic effects. This increases activity of skin cell ion channels and activates electrophysiological activity that determines the skin’s protective properties. The salt provides pH normalization and induces reparative and regenerative processes in derma, increases skin rigidity, stimulates growth and improves hair health. The dry salt impacts the skin microcirculation and assists cellular membrane activity used in dermatology and cosmetology and enhances their effectiveness.
What type of skin conditions might improve Regular and consistent dry salt therapy may help people with the following various skin conditions:
• Swelling & Inflammation
• Dry & Flaky Skin
• Skin Aging
For skin conditions high concentration and aggressive administration of dry salt and consistency of the sessions are the key elements for successful results.
