I have unofficialy opened this summer season - with my first swim in the sea! I must admit - a remarkable feeling! The sea is perfect and refreshing, especially when you go to the beach after a busy day at the office. Most people who work in closed spaces, in offices, where they spend 8 hours a day sitting behind a table, usually have problems with circulation, but also with fatigue. Swimming in fresh cold water affects the tightness of the vessel, which temporarily raises the pressure and speeds up blood flow. Cold water otherwise causes a slight stress that causes the body to increase its own temperature. In addition, internal warming accelerates metabolism, which improves calorie burning and weight loss - another great thing for all those who want to lose some weight this summer!
Today, in wellness centers, after the use of the sauna, cold pools and ice fountains are recommended, and there are special cabins and showers with different possibilities such as ice rains, cold fog and snow. But, those who have the opportunity to swim at sea each day, have a great advantage for better health and do not have to go to expensive treatments in the wellness center. Bathing in the cold sea spreads the lungs as much as an intensive exercise. Increased oxygen intake provides less exhaustion throughout the day and contributes to greater stamina in sports activities. Cold sea water has a positive effect on the skin. While hot water dries out our skin and hair, cold helps it to look shiny and healthier. Cold water also contributes to detoxification, so it stimulates the release of toxins and waste materials from the body. Sea salt is rich in useful minerals, containing potassium, magnesium and sodium. Aside from helping accelerate metabolism, sea salt minerals clean the skin, relieve inflammation and surface wounds, the skin becomes tighter. So, a combination of sea salt and cold water make an exceptionally healthy effect for our body and skin. The feeling after swimming in the cold sea is fantastic, you feel healthier, fatigue disappears, energy is lifted, skin regenerates, and what I'm also looking forward to is sunbathing with Alavi Quick Tanning organic cream with which I got a super bronze color after the first sunburn.
My day ended with a sip of freshly squeezed oranges and a sunset view. Yess, a real summer feeling! I believe that this summer you will enjoy the benefits of nature, healthy fresh sea and a deserved vacation after a successful working day! I'm writing to you soon and I'm sending kisses! xoxo
