Essential skin care tips for your next trip to Aruba
Aruba is famous for being an island where the sun shines every day of the year; this attracts thousands of tourists who love to have fun under the golden rays of the Caribbean.
If you are on an island like Aruba the sun will follow you wherever you go, whether it is snorkeling on the reefs of Mangel Halto, feeling the soft white sand in Eagle Beach, or chilling on the beautiful Baby Beach. the that’s why it’s important to be aware of skin care in Aruba.
Everyone talks about the wonderful benefits of the sun and vitamin D which give us stronger bones and has antidepressant effects. However, they seem to skip the small print that mentions that 10 minutes a day is enough to get all these benefits, otherwise, ultraviolet rays have harmful effects on the skin.
The sun is kind of like the bad guy we’ve all fallen in love with, at first we feel how nice and warm he is, but after a while, he becomes toxic for us. Once the fun is over, we end feeling messed up, tired, and looking almost unrecognizable.

Does this Sound familiar?
In case your grandmother or aunt hasn’t told you yet, sun exposure is the main reason for aging, so wearing a spectacular tan today could cost you in a few years.
Sun overexposure can cause lack of skin elasticity, dark spots, and even skin cancer. Another thing we must take into account when we are enjoying a vacation in Aruba is that not only the sun can cause damage to our skin, so does seawater.
When In excess, and depending on your type of skin, salt water can cause irritation, dehydration, and dryness.
In case it isn’t clear yet, let me explain why is it so important to take care of your skin when you are constantly exposed to the sun and the sea.
Your skin speaks for you before you even say a word.
It has happened to all of us, the morning after a night of unrestful sleep our eye bags give us away. The first thing we hear when we run into someone is: “are you okay?”, “you look tired”.
The skin of your face, in particular, is like your business card. If your skin looks stained, worn out and tired, it seems like you’re telling the world that, indeed, that’s how you feel.
Maintaining a clean, well-groomed skin not only means good looks but also good health. Although sometimes we forget, the skin is a living organ that is capable of reflecting any internal health problem.
After you read about the next UV damages to your skin, you’ll think twice before you decide to lie back and tan for hours.

These are the consequences of overexposure to the sun:
– Typical sunburns
You have no idea how much damage you do to your skin every time you expose yourself to the sun for too long.
The redness, swelling, itching, and pain may go away in a few days, but the damage is already done. Once the UV rays penetrate the skin, there’s no going back and you’re exposed to their long-term effects, including skin cancer and premature skin aging.
– Premature aging
Everyday women accept with more attitude the processes of aging, some let their gray hair shine, and others stop covering the signs of aging with makeup.
But wait a minute! The fact that these signs appear much earlier than they should because you exposed yourself to the sun (irresponsibly), is unforgivable.
Exposure to UV rays without any protection causes the skin to become thick, wrinkled and stained prematurely. So watch out for this!
– Uneven skin tone
Uneven skin tone is almost every girl’s nightmare, we look at ourselves in the mirror hoping that the unevenness ness has magically disappeared, but disappointed, we end up covering it with makeup.
The small and dark spots in areas such as the mustache or the forehead are produced by the over-stimulation of melanin coming from the sun’s rays.
That’s when we wish we had touched up our sunscreen, but it’s too late now.
– Acne breakouts
If you’ve ever heard that the sun is good for curing acne, don’t get confused.
The sun can be beneficial for people with mild acne since parts of the ultraviolet rays have anti-inflammatory effects, but this is not always the case. In more sensitive skin the sun can create a rebound effect, generating more acne.
In addition, when acne lesions are exposed to the sun without protection, they can leave scars on the face.
– Skin Cancer
Can you believe that 80% of skin cancer cases come from UV exposure?
Skin cancer usually appears in very light skin and can be spotted in different forms. If you see rare lesions on your skin, such as dark spots or moles that grow, itch, bleed or change color, visit your dermatologist A.S.A.P.
We’ve heard dermatologists talk about how important it is to use sunscreen before you go out, and we agree that we HAVE to use it, but this isn’t the only way to protect ourselves from the potent UV rays.
There are many other ways to take care of your skin both before and after being exposed to ultraviolet rays, especially if you’re on an amazing island like Aruba.
How to take care of your skin during your vacation in Aruba?
First, we go with the basics before going outside:
– Plan your activities according to the most convenient hours of sun exposure
Keep in mind that UV rays are the most potent and harmful between 10:00 am and 4:00 pm.
– Apply sunscreen correctly
Just because your face looks like Casper the Friendly Ghost, definitely doesn’t mean you applied sunscreen correctly.
Make sure the sun protection factor is more than 50, then apply it evenly, 20 minutes before going out and retouch every 2 hours.
Oh! And don’t forget to apply it on the areas that receive the rays directly, such as the neck, never, face and ears.
– Don’t be fooled by a couple of clouds
The lack of heat sensation can make you forget about the sun, but you should know that 90% of solar radiation manages to cross the clouds and reach you in the same way.
It is rare to see cloudy days in Aruba, but if so, do not pay much attention, use your sunscreen anyways, and continue enjoying a delicious cocktail in front of the sea.
– Don’t forget your hat and sunglasses
Besides making you look fashionable and cool, a big hat and a good pair of sunglasses will help you fight UV rays all day long.

– Protect your hair too
If you take the time to take care of your skin, you can also do it with your hair. Too much sun and salt water cause dryness, fragility, and hair loss. So before starting your activities on the island, apply UV treatments or plenty of styling cream.
Imagine you’ve been on the beach all day, now the damage is already done, how do you repair it?
– Hydration inside and out is essential
Just like the sun tans your skin quickly, it also dries your skin. This leaves burns that are not pleasant at all, neither for you nor for those who see how you change your skin and transform yourself like a chameleon.
To restore your skin, the first thing you should do is drink plenty of liquids, and then apply plenty of body lotion, you can cool it 1 hour in the refrigerator so that it feels more refreshing.
There are many home remedies that we could recommend you, but we know that skin damaged by the sun and the sea really needs special care that you will only have in a Spa, and not exactly any Spa.
After sun exposure, you need to take care of and moisturize your skin so that it regenerates naturally, it’s not a quick process, but it’s definitely much easier and more enjoyable at Aruba’s tourists and locals favorite place: Clinical Massage & Spa Aruba.
These are just some of the best skin care treatments on Aruba.
Healing treatments for your skin in Aruba
The Mud Wrap is used to moisturize and relax the skin cells that have been altered by the sun. Dare to feel the burning diminish in the mud.
Aloe Vera therapy is one of the most recommended treatments to heal the skin after sunburn.
Aloe Vera is the famous magic plant of Aruba that has soothing effects that produce a great relief to the skin inflamed by sunburn, it also rejuvenates the skin. We love Aloe!
Now let’s focus on the most important thing, rehabilitating facial skin.
After-sun Facial Repair Treatment is like an anti-aging formula, with no needles or botox needed, everything at Clinical Massage & Spa Aruba is natural.
Facial repair consists of nourishing the skin to reinforce the natural defenses against sun damage. This treatment hydrates and protects your skin, leaving it naturally luminous.
To make everyone happy, you’ll also find a special facial for the gentlemen who need it so much (since they are usually the ones who take the least care of their skin).
The special gentlemen’s facial includes all the care a man’s skin needs, after spending a day or a week under the sun., The facial ends with a fresh seaweed mask to leave the face completely refreshed.
After your vacation in Aruba, you don’t have to get scared in front of the mirror after turning red as a shrimp, nor will you spend hours trying to cover unsuccessfully the different tones your skin may have.
If you take the necessary precautions to protect yourself from ultraviolet rays, and if you also give yourself at least one day at Clinical Massage & Spa Aruba, not only will you achieve the dream tan, but you will also make your skin look and feel more radiant and healthy than before.

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.

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.

Have you ever felt like you're carrying a heavy burden around you, both physically and emotionally? No worries! A Lymphatic Drainage can help you feel renewed and energetic.
