Did you know that salt water actually has a healing effect on the body?
“Hippocrates first used the word ‘thalassotherapy‘ to describe the healing effects of seawater, according to Pacific Naturopathic. Ancient Greeks appreciated the health and beauty benefits of this mineral-rich water and bathed and soaked in seawater-filled pools and hot tubs.” (Live strong)
Salt – Also known as Sodium Chloride, did you know that it acts as an incredible clearing, and cleansing agent. Switch from your harsh chemical based products, and introduce a morning swim in the ocean to help cure your skin issues!
Water Fitness – Whilst it may seem obvious, swimming at the beach will help you keep fit. You use an array of muscle groups such as your arms, legs, shoulders and other unique muscles that aren’t really used in other forms of physical activity.
TIP: If you’re short on time, simply tread water at a fast pace for 1 minute! The more reps you do, the more calories you’ll burn! It’s incredible for toning too…
Whose waking up at 6am for a morning swim tomorrow? I know I am…
