Normal saline solution (0.9% sodium chloride solution) is isotonic to the body fluids. It is used for all general cleaning, washing and rinsing purposes, such as wound cleansing, nasal irrigation, and facial cleansing after acne treatment. Its isotonic property provides a gentler, more balanced hydration to the skin than regular tap water. When choosing normal saline solution for your saline facial mask, be sure to look for “sterile” solution.
