Epsom salt (magnesium sulfate) is a naturally-occurring mineral salt compound that helps to relax muscles, loosen stiff joints, and make the water feel "silkier". Magnesium in the body can enhance brain neurotransmitters that are responsible for inducing sleep and reducing stress. Magnesium may also promote melatonin production, a sleep-inducing hormone.
Citric acid is a weak organic acid (alpha-hydroxy acid) that is found naturally in citrus fruits. It lowers pH, which helps strengthen the acid mantle on the skin if it is within a specific pH range. The acid mantle is the thin barrier on the skin that helps to keep moisture in, and it fights bacteria too.
Baking soda (sodium bicarbonate) is a salt with a pH of 8, is antibacterial, antiseptic, and has anti-inflammatory properties- so It can help fight acne breakouts. It reduces/balances the acidity of the citric acid, so it is not overly acidic and works with your acid mantle. It can help detox your skin and calm irritation from eczema.
