2012 JKU rust

I went beach driving in Galveston the other day. Hosed off the undercarriage and ball joints pretty generously. However I've noticed some rust starting around the castle nuts and on the steering knuckle. Any ideas? I doubt it is anything worth stressing about. But I do live at the nj beach. And obviously salt is ever present. Wondering if it will continue to get worse

To add. Basically the wheel joints have some rust starting. I'm not too worried because obviously the drive shaft is rusty as well. Pretty much from day 1
