Of course, the majority of salve users all benefit from the most common intended use of a salve, which is to heal dry and worn out skin. Salves are great at restoring moisture.

For the use it is a simple process of putting a pea-sized amount of the salve on your fingertip and gently spreading it on any area of your body that could use a bit of moisture.

The Medical Assistant

The Cleanser and Acne Bully

Salve BenefitsI’m sure there’s a few of you teenagers out there reading who are struggling to fight off their stubborn acne on their face, back, among other areas.

What acne-sufferers need to know is that many of the traditional creams, cleansers, and prescription medications they are currently using to treat their condition are actually drying out the skin further and making the acne worse!

To effectively allow your skin to rid itself of acne, you must use products that are incredibly gentle, free of harsh chemicals, and that retain the moisture in the skin. Luckily for you, salves fit these criteria in every way! Salves have been shown in countless studies to be great at fighting oils and bacteria within the pores of the skin.

To experience these wonderful benefits, simply apply your salve immediately after cleansing with a gentle water-based cleanser. Don’t forget to wait a few minutes to lie down in bed if you are applying at night, as salves tend to be a bit thicker than the typical moisturizer and take a bit more time to dry.

Have you ever wished that you could turn back time and teleport to your younger years when your skin was so smooth, clear, and hydrated? Salves can give you quite a close experience to this, as they have been shown in many studies to have anti-aging effects.

Simply apply a fingertip amount to the affected area and watch the redness and irritation go away!
