Skin Healing by the Sea

The benefits of going to the beach range from overall relaxation to skin regeneration.

Ocean water is known to clear conditions like acne, psoriasis and dryness, or simply dull and deteriorated skin by internal and external factors. In 4th century B.C. Hipprocrates, known as the father of medicine, was the first to introduce the medical benefits of seawater for healing purposes. Thalassa is the word for sea in Greek and for thousands of years people have known about its healing properties.

Seawater is known to improve skin hydration, elasticity and comfort as it increases moisture in the skin. While the salt acts as a natural exfoliant the magnesium in seawater helps with redness, irritation and inflammation. Salt water also heals cuts, sores and other skin conditions and it offers detoxifying effects and cell regeneration. Seawater is also more effective to treat cases of dermatitis (allergic skin rash) than using sodium lauryl sulphate, a salt compound commonly used as treatment, as it helps the skin to seal and heal naturally.

The overall health advantages of being by the beach, breathing ocean salt air and swimming in seawater boost circulation, enhance the immune system, relax the mind, improve sleep and promote a more active lifestyle. Greater wellbeing translates into better skin. Sand, sea and sun (even with SPF) will enable the skin and body to regularly absorb further health benefits from vitamin D.

After a vacation, the skin is more hydrated, clear, soft, elastic and well nourished due to exfoliation, hydration and rejuvenation effects. Splash in and enjoy the benefits of seawater as natural ocean therapy for radiant skin. Seawater is not only for skin rejuvenation. It’s also good to revive the heart and soul.
