Disolve the salt in water first. As a general rule never add salt crystals to a tank that has livestock in it. One easy way of rasing the SG is to use saltwater for your topoffs instead of freshwater.

How many points to you want to increase it?

You could take out a few pints of tank water and add a few pints of higher salinity saltwater. Or you could just add saltwater to replace the evaporated water. Or on your next water change you could add water of a slighly higher salinity than your target salinity.
