People choose their vacation destinations based on many different reasons, from historical landmarks to areas of natural beauty to the range of outdoor activities available. However, for a vacation that guarantees to be a treat for your skin, and thoroughly nourishes your mind, body and soul, take a look at OROGOLD’s favorite skin soothing vacation destinations.
The Dead Sea, Jordan/Israel
Being 1200 feet below sea level makes the Dead Sea the lowest point on earth, which means that you can safely soak up the sun without having to worry too much about UV damage. Sunlight is a known treatment for many different skin conditions, and can also give a huge boost to your mental and emotional state. In addition to this, the water in the Dead Sea is packed with essential minerals, as well as plenty of salt, all of which bring many different benefits to your skin. Since bathing in the Dead Sea is free, it is completely up to you whether you choose to make it the focus of your vacation, or simply a stop-off point on a day trip, although OROGOLD would highly recommend the former.
Punta Cana, Dominican Republic
In addition to its gorgeous sandy beaches, which bring with them a variety of skin benefits, Punta Cana also has one of the best spas in the Dominican Republic. Rock Spa, at the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino, is 60,000 square feet of pure skin indulgence. In addition to its huge hydrotherapy center, complete with its own lagoon and ice room, the spa also has a clay steam room, a sensory expertise pool, and many other innovative treatments. Since the spa is located in a fantastic beach resort, this means that you could easily spend every day of your vacation enjoying luxurious skin-soothing spa treatments.
Blue Lagoon, Iceland
This is a common destination for those looking to treat their psoriasis, as the chemical and bacterial composition of the Blue Lagoon can’t be found anywhere else in the world. The water is rich in minerals, and has a noticeably positive effect on both healthy and problematic skin. In addition to the healing benefits from the geothermal water, the white silica mud that is found in the lagoon has also been seen to have significant anti-aging effects, making this a regular vacation destination that many visit each year. If that wasn’t enough to convince you, the Blue Lagoon is also an area of outstanding natural beauty, and one that should be on everybody’s bucket list.
Although your idea of a great vacation may be one that allows your mind to relax, don’t forget that your skin could often do with a vacation as well. Whether you feed it with essential minerals and plenty of sunlight in Israel, let it indulge in a world-class spa in the Dominican Republic, or bathe in the unique waters of the Blue Lagoon in Iceland, your skin will thank you for the unforgettable treat.
