Sea Swimming Helps to Heal Skin Conditions

Sea water is extremely rich in minerals and can improve your skin condition and help treat those who are suffering from debiltating skin problems.


Research published in the medical journal Skin Research and Technology found that sea water is good for some skin conditions such as psoriasis.


It’s thought the salt and potassium chloride found naturally in sea water ‘seals’ the damaged skin and speeds up the healing process.


The British Association of Dermatologists had also found that eczema in children improves when parents introduce sea swimming into their excercise regimen.


A study conducted by the organisation into children with eczema caused by allergies found that sea water baths reduced their symptoms.
