Swimming in the sea has long been an activity enjoyed by people at the beach, but did you realize that bathing and soaking in seawater was actually a practice revered by the ancient Greeks for its numerous benefits? Far more than taking a refreshing dip to cool off, they considered the mineral-rich water of the sea to be extremely powerful in the realms of health and beauty. They commonly soaked in pools and hot tubs that had been stocked with seawater, but in modern times, most people choose to go straight to the source with a swim in the sea. It is a terrific activity to enjoy while on vacation for a number of reasons: it has the ability to hydrate the skin, improve circulation, boost your immune system and put you in a better mood.
Here are some of the great benefits of bathing in the sea while you are at the beach:
Thanks to its high levels of magnesium, seawater has the ability to hydrate the skin and give it a radiant look. Bathing in seawater can help bring a greater level of moisture to the skin while it decreases inflammation-related skin issues such as redness and a rough texture because of its richness of magnesium. After swimming in the sea, skin is positively glowing!
When you swim in the sea, it helps your blood circulation because the activity carries more oxygen-rich blood from your heart via the arteries, capillaries and veins through the rest of your body and circuits back to your heart. Seawater therapy that involves swimming or bathing in warm seawater has the ability to improve circulation because it restores essential minerals that are depleted from the body through environmental toxins, unhealthy eating habits and high stress levels.
Countless devotees of swimming in seawater enjoy it for its wide-reaching general health benefits and positive impact on overall wellness. The effects of swimming in warm seawater can help fend off many conditions such as asthma, inflammatory disease, bronchitis and arthritis as well as general aches and pains. Due to its rich levels of magnesium, seawater can help decrease stress, relax the muscles and promote more restful sleep. Magnesium is also praised for its ability to soothe moodiness and calm frazzled nerves.
Strengthen Your Immune System
With a natural concoction of vitamins, mineral salts, vital elements, living microorganisms, trace elements and amino acids, seawater can promote antibacterial and antibiotic effects in the body that can give the immune system a healthy boost. Similar to human blood plasma, the elements of seawater are easily absorbed and utilized by the body when you are swimming in it. Sea mist contains negatively charged ions that attach to your lungs and strengthen your immune system. Your pores are able to open more when you swim in the sea, which causes your skin to absorb healthy sea minerals as it flushes out disease-causing toxins.
