*2023 10 outfits* What to wear to a salt cave & salt therapy? (+AVOID!)

People, let’s get salty! If you are looking for what to wear to a salt cave or salt therapy, this comprehensive visual guide is here to answer all of your questions.

I don’t know about you but going to a salt cave and enjoying a therapy session in a grotto has always been on my bucket list. 

I did it last year on my 26th birthday and the whole experience is so soothing and divine.

It just works wonders for me.

In a broad sense, halotherapy (or salt therapy) is a natural remedy that involves inhaling pharmaceutical-grade dry salt particles to improve your breathing and reduce inflammation.

By sitting in a raw salt grotto and being present with nothing but yourself, a visit to a salt cave just freshen you up in the most distinctive way.

That said, to get the most out of this wonderful experience, picking the right outfit is key. Ahead, I’ve gathered 10 real-life outfit ideas together with what NOT to wear.


1. What to wear to a salt cave?

Featuring the discrete music and elegant atmosphere in the spa-like salt room, you definitely want your outfit vibes with this relaxing setting.

As you are not required to take off the clothes throughout the therapy, it’s best to wear something loose that makes you feel the most comfortable.

These ladies just demonstrate the perfect outfit to wear in the salt cave. A billowy tunic top or poncho top will be perfect in this setting.

While it’s totally optional, I’d say pick the pastel or neutral tones like baby blue, white, and beige that add a dash of calmness to the get-up.


As you will be sitting in the salt cave, make sure your pants are not too tight. Avoid structured fabric and go for lightweight fabric like cotton and linen instead.

2. Wear regular clothes to a salt room

But seriously, there are no specific rules when it comes to the salt cave dress code. Want to wear your regular graphic tee and jeans? That’s totally doable too!

As long as you feel carefree in what you dress, they are the right outfit.

These days, more people wear leggings or yoga pants to the salt cave for a good reason, they are very stretchy and help you enjoy the therapy wholly with all the moves.

Actually, harem pants are another nice pick for salt cave – super lightweight and comfy.

4. Wear a bikini to the salt spa

Spoiled yourself for a salt cave spa? I’d say throw on your favorite bikini to enjoy this dreamy place!

5. When in doubt, bring outerwear to the salt grotto

In case you wonder, the average temperature of the salt room is around 16-18 Celsius so that’s pretty cool.

If you can’t stand the lower-the-room temperature, feel free to throw on your hoodie and pants!

Most of the halotherapy wellness centers also provide blankets for the guest in case they didn’t bring outerwear.

So don’t worry!

6. Wear a robe for halotherapy

Besides the blanket, some wellness centers will provide a robe. Not only it’s practical but that’s also aesthetic for an Instagram-able shot.

For gentlemen, a comfy tee and khaki shorts are ultimate failproof.

When you are with besties, you can dress up literally e.v.e.r.y.w.h.e.r.e. And yes, that includes a salt cave!

Of course, this is not a common case but I thought it’s fun to include! Well, I guess now you know what to surprise your partner with next time!

9. What shoes to wear to the salt cave

Depending on the policy, shoes may not be allowed to wear inside the salt room and you should wear white socks instead.

In other cases, some centers will provide you the disposable shoe covers.


If you are doing the salt cave for skin treatments, it’s best to go sleeveless so the salt particles may be absorbed through your skin as much as possible.

10. Can you wear make-up to the salt room?

Inside the salt cave, the air is dry and cool. Plus, you don’t need to get super active during the therapy so feel free to wear makeup.

That said, you want to keep it natural and minimal if you want the salt particles in touch with your face. 

The dry salt will speed up cell rejuvenation and improves skin rigidity overall.
