Pink is in this season — but not in the form of wrap skirts and platform shoes.
Pink salt is also hitting the spa circuit, with salt caves opening in nearly every state. These sodium-packed chambers are coated walls-to-ceiling with Himalayan salt, and piled inches deep on the floor. Visitors relax in them for about 45 minutes, reading books, napping, and even bringing their kids along to play. Some salt caves also disperse a fine pink saline mist into the air. Supposedly, breathing in while inside these oases improves your skin and helps sinus and respiratory conditions such as asthma and allergies.
But do all these supposed health claims of pink salt hold up? We grilled dietitians and MDs to find out whether the trend is really worth its salt.
