The sulfur helps to synthesize oxygen whereas potassium maintains the water balance for cell metabolism, thus enabling the absorption of nourishment to get rid of impurities. Calcium cleans your pores, making your cell membranes stronger and magnesium removes dirt and toxins from the skin.

For treatment of puffiness of eyes, lie on your back and apply pads soaked in a solution of one teaspoon salt and hot water.
