You Need To Visit These Beauty Destinations

Go the extra mile for beauty

One of the things people look forward to when they are travelling is the shopping. In fact, there are some who travel just to buy things that are not readily available where they live. There are also some who go overseas to get cosmetic procedures done, but going to a different country to enjoy beauty treatments is not that common. Yes, raiding local drugstores for skincare gems is nice. But there are actually unique beauty treatments you can go to specific countries for.

Here are just some of the beautifying things you can do during your trip to these equally beautiful destinations.

Inkaterra Machu Picchu

A hotel in Machu Picchu, Peru called Inkaterra offers a one-of-a-kind service. They have a body treatment where guests are given a coca leaf mask. You don’t have to worry about getting addicted to it, (even though coca is the main ingredient for a drug) because coca in itself do not have addictive properties. What it does have are moisturising and soothing properties, so you’ll be sure to have a relaxing time.

Puning Sand Spa

This treatment is exactly what you think it is. You’ll get buried under volcanic sand and ash from Mt. Pinatubo in Pampanga, Philippines. The thermal properties of the sand will soothe and relax your muscles. After that, you’ll be given a mud pack containing volcanic ash, which is great for addressing rashes, cellulite and other skin blemishes.

Beitou Hot Springs

There have been studies in different countries about the effectiveness of bathing in hot springs in alleviating different kinds of ailments. While there’s still no definitive answer to our question on whether hot springs are as miraculous as the Japanese say they are, accounts of people who have tried them are enough to convince us to try them. The Beitou Hot Springs in Taiwan are especially great for when you have flaky and hyperpigmented skin because of the minerals found in them.

Dead Sea

Many beauty products have been created with ingredients sourced from the Dead Sea. They all have been given rave reviews, which got us dreaming of actually experiencing the ingredients in their purest form. While diving in the Dead Sea is impossible because of its exorbitant salt content (you’re only gonna float), we’ll surely immerse our bodies as much as we can to soak in the goodness the body of water can give. The water has reportedly been effective at helping treat psoriasis and skin allergies. Meanwhile, the sand from the Dead Sea has become quite a popular ingredient in body scrubs.
