After-Sun Facial Repair Treatment and why It Is Essential After a Vacation in Aruba

Vacations in Aruba are all about living your best life and creating new memories. However, sometimes these memories are reflected into your face in the form of dark spots and wrinkles because of the sun exposure. When this happens the most pleasant memories become a little overshadowed, don’t you think?

And you don’t want this! You want to remember your trip to Aruba with the feeling of the silky white sand over your feet, and the breathtaking view of the bright turquoise water in front of you.

The best beaches in the Caribbean come with a strong sunlight

Aruba is well known for having the best beaches in the Caribbean, some would even dare to say that it has the best beaches in the world, including Eagle Beach, Palm Beach, and Andicuri Beach.

The Happy Island is also the perfect destination to escape from winter because it is known as the island that shines all year round, even though it’s quite windy, there’s rarely a storm. In fact, Aruba’s sky is the clearest and bluest from all the Caribbean Islands one of the reasons behind its beauty.

Keep in mind that being relatively close to the equator, Aruba’s sun is strong.

So as beautiful as these beaches are they might come with some extra price if you are not careful enough. We aren’t talking about money, we mean the side effects that the brightest star above can cause over your skin after exposure.

¿How do sun rays actually affect your skin?

You probably think you already know all about sun damage, but there are a few things that you might be taking for granted.

There’s UVA and UVB radiation coming from the sun, both penetrate your skin’s layers: the epidermis (top layer) and the dermis (deeper layer), and both affect your skin in different ways.

For example, UVA rays penetrate into the dermis, where your skin’s collagen and elasticity lives, this causes loose skin and premature aging.

While UVB affect your epidermis, generating unpleasant sunburns and eye problems.

You won’t even notice part of the damage immediately because sun damage is also cumulative, which means it builds up over time starting when you were just a baby However, it sure shows up as you get older.

This is just one of the reasons why an After Sun Facial Repair Treatment after a vacation in Aruba is a must!

Before getting there, you have to be aware of the ways in which your skin is affected, especially your face, not only because you only have one for the rest of your life, but because it is the most exposed and vulnerable area of your body.

The results of accumulated sun damage on your skin


Sunburns are the most common negative effect of excessive sun exposure.

If you have experienced sunburn before, and to be honest, who hasn’t? You’ve probably noticed that symptoms don’t usually appear until four or five hours after you’ve had too much fun at the beach.

Some of those symptoms are: redness, swelling, pain, headache and blisters.

Loose skin

This is one of the sun exposure damages that manifests with time.

UV rays cause damage in collagen and elastic tissue which leads to sagging and premature aging.


Wrinkles are associated with aging, but sun exposure is a significant factor to determine how early they appear.

As we just explained, the sun damages collagen and elastic tissue , which is the cause behind the premature appearance of wrinkles and deep lines.

If you don’t do something about it soon you are very likely to develop more wrinkles in the future.

Now you know why two people the same age can look like they are completely different ages depending on the amount of sun exposure they have had, and many other lifestyle choices.

Dark and white spots

UV light exposure damages the cells in the surface of your skin which causes white and dark spots on the skin. It also makes acne hyperpigmentation worse, so for the ones suffering from acne, sun protection is a must.

Dry Skin

The sun can parch your skin, causing rough patches, this is almost inevitable. But keep in mind that drinking plenty of water during the day and after sun exposure will help you hydrate.

I. What is a Lymphatic Drainage?

It's essential to have a good understanding of what the lymphatic system is and what it does. It’s a complex network of vessels and tissues that work together to remove waste and toxins from the body, regulate fluid balance, and support the immune system.

But wait, there’s more! It plays a critical role in maintaining the health and functioning of many other systems in the body. The lymphatic vessels are responsible for carrying lymph, a clear fluid that contains white blood cells and other immune system components, throughout the body. The lymph nodes, located at various points along the lymphatic vessels, act as filters, trapping bacteria, viruses, and other harmful substances, and allowing the immune system to destroy them.

If you're considering a lymphatic drainage session, you may wonder what to expect during the massage.

Depending on your specific health concerns, the massage can focus on particular areas of the body where lymphatic congestion is an issue, such as the legs or arms.

Lymphatic drainage is a massage technique that stimulates the lymphatic system to promote the movement of lymph fluid throughout the body. This technique uses gentle, rhythmic strokes to push the lymph toward the lymph nodes, which can be filtered and processed more efficiently.

Looking for a lymphatic drainage experience like no other? Clinical Massage Aruba & Spa offers the best one to meet your health needs.

Hang tight and learn about the benefits of this treatment.

II. Benefits of Lymphatic Drainage Massage

  • Boosts the immune system.
  • Filters out toxins from the body.
  • Enhances the body's ability to fight infections and diseases.

This massage can also help balance fluids and remove toxins from the body, so it’s normal to feel an increased need to urinate. With the powerful detoxification effect also comes increased energy and mental clarity.

Whether you want to improve your physical health or simply relax and unwind, this technique is worth considering.
