Best Travel Destinations to Rejuvenate your Skin

"The real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new landscapes but in having new eyes.” – Marcel Proust. Well yes that and even having new Skin-cells. Lol. But on a serious note, travelling can have a serious side-effect on your skin that includes dew-drop freshness. All you have to do is select the trail that leads to happiness, de-stress and a state of Nirvana. It could be a week's retreat in an apple-orchard. A massage-holiday in Kerala. Or just an escapade in the lap of nature, away from the world of technology, advancement and technology advancement. I recommend the following travel destinations if you are looking for a good skin-care holiday along with some adventure:

So forget the opulent salons and the extravagant Spas, just hop onto a flight to any one of these destination for an awesome beauty and skin-wellness treatment.

Rome-For Royal Roman Baths
You don't really need a beauty bath with donkey milk as the  Queens of Rome enjoyed. But of course the Roman baths where hot water packed with minerals was used in still considered an effective concoction for well-being and superior skin-care. So get that Visa and head straight to experience the bliss of Balneotherapy. This is a popular therapy where mineral enriched hot water massage is used to treat common ailments like itching, dryness, allergies etc. It relaxes the body muscles, and helps to relief the stiffness of frozen joints. It will give you the glow of a newly-wed really because the massage increases the blood flow to your skin and body parts, leaving you skin visibly ablaze. Go get your passport stamped now.

Israel - For the Dead Sea Therapy
Just surrender yourself to the weightlessness of the Dead Sea and you will feel more alive than ever before. Exposing your skin to the healing waters of the Dead Sea, is like signing in for a luxurious Spa Therapy. Rich with minerals like sodium, potassium, magnesium, chloride, bromide, iron and calcium, this is the most natural way to increase your blood circulation. Magnesium in this sea water rehydrates the skin  and bromide helps in fighting skin allergies. A dip in this water can reduce and heal acne, psoriasis and reduce any signs of skin-skin-inflamation. Hope this radiant-skin holiday plan is now floating in your head.   

Thailand- For Thai Massage

Think of yourself as a dough ball in the hands of a food connoisseur and just lie back and relax. Believe me, Thai massage sends the blood rushing to the upper layer of skin in a matter of minutes. The traditional oils and herbs used by them like Kaafir Lime, lemongrass, Mandarin Orange Essence, Coconut Oil, Jojoba Oil are nutritious food for your skin. They replenish dry and tired skin & muscles and deep nourish your body, fighting any traces of ageing. The techniques adapted by the typical Thai masseurs is based on traditional and ancient science and hence this is a complete detoxifying holiday destination. So check into a beach facing resort and return home feeling and looking much younger.

Switzerland-For its ‘ Stimulating climate’

A combination of a cool climate, high UVB radiation ( Heliotherapy ) and reduced oxygen content strengthens the immunity of your body. And the same reflects on your face as a new found sparkle
If you have ever wondered how the people from the mountains enjoy such smooth and clear complexion, then just breathe in more of the crisp high altitude air. Yes when the air is thinner, the body is set into an overdrive to function. This helps in  producing younger & more powerful blood cells that transport oxygen into cells. This further pumps up your heart, strengthens muscles and improves skin elasticity. Not to mention the benefits that you can derive from the Swiss chocolates and wine. Wink wink. 

India –For Inner peace through Yoga

Honestly you don't really have to stand upside down on your head for that blush on your face. Deep breathing Asanas and Surya Namskars can treat your skin to the same yoga-goodness. And when you practice this in the lap of the Himalayas where the Adinath, lord Shiva himself attained this powerful knowledge, you can only rise to the occasion. Even in the ancient scriptures of India like Rig Veda, practicing Yoga has been defined as the way of healthy living. Add to this the Ayurveda potency of Indian spices, herbs and even tree-barks and you have the best skin-care served to you. Try Saffron milk for digestion, Brahmi for healthy hair or just an ubtan made of Turmeric, Gram-flour, Milk and Saffron and your skin will shed its dullness in a second.

Don't forget to load up on your favourite music tracks and a selfie-high phone or camera. After all you don't want to miss clicking pictures of a new, radiant and refreshed you.
