The Fijian seaside has plenty of health benefits, especially for your skin.

Fiji is one of the best places on Earth for a relaxing escape. There's little to debate here – the twinkling golden sand and warm island breeze makes this location the perfect paradise to recharge in, especially with a calming dip in the South Pacific Ocean. Swimming in the ocean isn't only good for exercise and recreational purposes – the natural salts and minerals of the Fijian waters are a treat for your skin.

Fiji oceanA trip to the Fijian seaside isn't just beneficial for the mind and soul – your skin will thank you for diving in the mineral rich waters.

Natural exfoliator

For soft and lush skin, a trip to the seaside will do the trick. The minerals in sea salt paired with coarse sand gently scrub away at dead skin. It's a great idea to commence your skin care routine after a swim in the sea – salt water opens your pores, meaning it'll absorb cleansers and moisturisers more efficiently for a deep clean.

Reducing inflammation

Salt water has incredible benefits for those who suffer from skin ailments, such as eczema or psoriasis. This is because the ocean is loaded with skin-loving minerals such as calcium and magnesium. These minerals – particularly magnesium – are anti-inflammatory, perfect for reducing redness and preventing itching. Salt water on its own is known for keeping bacteria at bay. For acne sufferers, a rinse in the sea helps in warding off bacteria that hides in your pores, creating a cleaner base to apply treatments and cleansers.

Blood circulation

Swimming in the ocean helps in promoting blood circulation. This is thanks to the combination of physical exercise and nutrients you're exposed to while diving between the waves. An improved blood cycle helps in reducing stress and removing toxins such as air-pollutants absorbed by the skin.
