4 reasons why your body needs a trip to the beach

With this nice weather we're having, we all need to be making the most of it. Here are four reasons why going to the beach can benefit your health.

While we have the nice weather, you should make the most of it. Even though the sun can be dangerous, it is vital for the human body. Our bodies need Vitamin D, and while it is in some foods, it is easier and better to get it from sun exposure. We need Vitamin D for stronger bones and healthy skin. All you need is a pair of sunglasses and a cute little bikini, Penney’s lets be havin ya!

Sand is a natural exfoliant. This will get rid of dead skin cells, resulting in soft, rejuvenated skin. There are also nerve endings in your feet that are stimulated when you walk on a beach barefoot. This is why we all love the feeling of walking on a beach barefoot.

Seawater has many benefits. This is due to the various minerals in the water- iodine, magnesium and potassium are examples of these. These can fight infection de-stress you and have anti-ageing effects. Plus, let’s face it, how many of us still hold onto that little bit of childhood hope that we could in fact be a mermaid?

Peace and quiet
