Even Elle Macpherson is reportedly a fan, and when you look as good as Elle, with access to the best products in the beauty industry, we have to trust that they might be a little bit magical.
What are Epsom Salts?
They are a naturally occurring mineral, found in Epsom, Surrey (hence the name!). They are mainly made up of Magnesium, Sulphur and Oxygen which are formed into little crystal like lumps that look a lot like the salt we would put on our food.
