Sand is a Natural Exfoliant
Tired of walking around your home? Doesn’t walking along the beach sound so much better? Well it’s better in more ways than one. Studies have shown that walking on wet sand has many health benefits. Wet sand acts as a natural exfoliant that can peels off dead skin cells from any part of your body creating renewed and softer skin.
More Sun Can Help With Depression
Let’s be real we are are experiencing cabin fever and the only time we really get sun is when we are running to get groceries or traveling somewhere “essential.” This lack of sunlight can cause depression. Did you know sunlight releases hormones in your brain.? Exposure to sunlight increases the brain’s release of a hormone called serotonin. Serotonin helps boost your mood and can help people to feel calm and focused.
Seawater Helps With Anti-Aging
We all probably aged a good 5 years during this quarantine with the added stress of our work and social lives being impacted. So why not get some of those years back? The ocean’s water is chock full of anti-aging minerals that can counter the decline of your skin’s elasticity. Seawater’s rich minerals like magnesium, zinc, iron and potassium are also anti-inflammatory, helping to heal and protect the skin barrier.
Studies Show You Sleep Better After a Day at the Bach
Lost track of time lately? Don’t know what day it is? Let’s face it our sleep schedules have been screwed up. So if you’re looking for a great natural way to get better sleep, hit the beach!

The Beach Can Actually Help Fight Internal Infections
