Even a Short Vacation Holds Great Potential
Some may think that in order to truly enjoy the benefits of treatments available at Dead Sea spa hotels you must spend at least two weeks at the Dead Sea. This is most certainly untrue, even a short stay of a day or two is enough to generate substantial physical, emotional and mental improvement. Of course, longer vacations at the Dead Sea offer a chance to enjoy more treatments and greater benefits.

We have all been taught to beware of the sun's harmful U.V (ultra violet) rays. It is well known that overexposure may damage our skin. We have learnt to be careful, to use sunscreen lotion, hats and sunglasses, to sit in the shade etc. But sunlight is very important and lack of it caressing our skin leads to lack in several very important vitamins such as vitamin D, E and C.
The Dead Sea is situated at the very lowest point on the earth's surface. This means that the sun's rays pass through an extra filter. Sun baths are included in lists of recommended Dead Sea treatments because the sun light at the Dead Sea has less harmful U.V rays than anywhere else on Earth.
The Dead Sea for psoriasis treatment is just an indication of the benefits we can all enjoy from vacationing at a Dead Sea spa hotel.
