Pretty much anyone who has met me knows that I react pretty badly to mosquito bites.
After many attempts at trying over-the-counter meds and at-home remedies, I have only found one thing that soothes an itchy bite: kosher salt.
Seriously, that’s it!
Mix about a teaspoon of kosher salt with a little bit of water (enough to make a paste) in the palm of your hand and rub the scrub into the area of the mosquito bite. Leave the scrub on your skin for a minute or 2 then rinse away. Kosher salt acts as an abrasive and dries out the bite – The itch should stop almost immediately!
On days when I am dealing with a lot of bites, I bring a mug of salt into the shower with me and apply the scrub there for easy clean-up.
If you have particularly dry skin, try mixing a little honey with the salt before applying.
Give it a try – Let me know what you think!
