Well, one can't feel pretty or look pretty is one's eyes are puffy and his/her teeth are yellow. Read this article to learn how salt can help eye puffiness and yellow teeth along with other salt remedies.

For starters, I depend on a salt solution to clean my sinuses before administering an allergy spray. It’s much more effective and I don’t need to use the whole bottle of the allergy spray. The saline solution brand I use and recommend is in the link below:

Now, there are those individuals who simply use a saline solution to avoid any possible sinus infection or to feel relief from post-nasal drip. For those who would like to make their own saline solution, need to boil their tap water for 3 to 5 minutes and then cool until lukewarm before using. It is recommended to sterilize one’s water for any solution one plans on using.

I can still remember my grandmother boiling the water she used for drinking purposes and that’s because she didn’t trust the tap water she was using. I always thought that was one of the smartest things she taught me.

Not only is salt used in helping one deal with a sinus infection, but it is also used in an eyewash, reducing under-eye puffiness, and in cleaning teeth.

As an Eyewash
Dissolve ¼ teaspoon of salt in a cup of warm water and used it as a wash for tired, irritated eyes. Be sure to boil your tap water for 3 to 5 minutes and then cool before using.

Reducing Under-Eye Puffiness
Dissolve ½ teaspoon of salt in a cup of hot water; soak a washcloth or cotton balls in the solution, and apply to the puffy areas.

Cleaning Teeth
Try a mixture of salt and baking soda for your “toothpaste.“ Pulverize sea salt in a blender or crush it with a rolling pin, mix with an equal amount of baking soda, shake, and store in a small glass jar. Mix with a bit of water, and brush as usual. Both salt and baking soda have antimicrobial properties that kill many of the pathogenic bacteria that cause cavities and gum disease.
