Many people dream of taking a tropical vacation, but often that dream is never realized. Whatever the reason is that you have not gone yet, forget about it, because if you really want to, you can make it happen. It’s simple. Make a decision, save your money and go. Even if you just go for a few days, you will discover that tropical places are amazing. They are often romantic and beautiful places to visit that can soothe your soul and give you a new perspective on life.
Whether it’s Hawaii, St. Martin, Bali, Jamaica, Costa Rica or Thailand, there is guaranteed to be a tropical destination you’ll fall in love with.
Here are six good reasons to visit the tropics on your next vacation:
1. Skin health
A tropical climate has health benefits that most people are not aware of. One surprising perk is the humidity. The combination of consistently warm temperatures and high humidity can be very good for your skin.
Naturally, you should remember to take precautions against getting sunburned, and those with serious skin conditions many not benefit from a tropical climate. In general, however, being in a warmer climate helps your pores to stay open, so more bacteria and skin toxins are released, which cleanses and rejuvenates your skin.
Your skin – especially your face – will be clearer, healthier and glowing. This is why dermatologists often recommend humidifiers for homes located in dry climates. Some of the most beautiful people in the world live in tropical locations. People in these areas don’t generally have as many skin problems as those who live in drier, harsher climates.
2. Fresh fruit
One of the best ways to improve your overall health is to eat more fruit. Doctors and dieticians have been saying this for years because of the essential fiber, vitamins and phytochemicals that fruit provides. Including more fruit in your diet can reduce the risk for stroke, heart disease, diabetes and cancer.
Some of the best fruit available is grown in the tropics, like bananas, coconuts and pineapple. Plus, fruit that is picked fresh off the tree and eaten on the spot can be consumed at the perfect time of ripeness. Fresh fruit tastes so much better than the fruit sold in most grocery stores because there is no storage time or refrigeration involved.
