Skin and hair care are very important in summer, that’s why you need these 5 tips for the beach recommended by Elba Hotels
When we think about the care for a day at the beach, the use of sunscreen before and after sun exposure always comes to mind. This is basic to protect us from UVA rays and maintain skin care in summer, but many times we forget other necessary practices. Here are five simple tips to enjoy the sun in a healthy way:
Water temperature changes activates the blood and lymphatic system. Discover this and the other benefits of going to a SPA thanks to Elba Hotels.
Beyond the relaxation that a day in a spa brings, many are unaware of the benefits of a water circuit. This system is part of hydrotherapy, a method that is based on the therapeutic properties of water on the body, which increase when the water is thermal or marine, as is the case with our Thalasso Spa.
But what advantages does a water circuit have for the body? The change in pool temperatures, the intensity and localized impact of the jets and bubbles of the jacuzzi or hot tub stimulate blood circulation, reduce muscle and joint pain, and promote skin hydration. Hydrotherapy also acts as a barrier to the immune system and opens airways.
Other spa services such as sauna or Turkish bath complement the benefits of this therapy. Among the most striking are the elimination of toxins by opening the pores of our skin, headaches relief, joints relaxation, skin elasticity increase or the opening of the respiratory tract, helping with nasal obstruction.
We’re celebrating World Water Day. Today it has become even more important to learn about the benefits of water for human beings, as well as in in our daily lives.
We use it daily, and, at least in Europe, is easily accessible. But how often do we stop to think about the vital importance it has for human beings and other living things? Water is the essential element for life on Earth. 70% of our body is water and, interestingly enough, the same goes for the planet we inhabit.
We’re sure that now you can better understand why we’re celebrating World Water Day.
World Water Day 2019
The official date of this holiday was proposed at the United Nations Conference on Environment and Development held in 1992 in Rio de Janeiro. At the end of that year a Resolution was adopted declaring 22 March of each year as World Water Day.

Sometimes your routine makes it hard to think beyond work, the kids’ school or the next getaway which is always around the corner. We take care of each other, but we do not always have the time to take care of our own body and mind, something fundamental in being able to continue caring for those around us.
This is why Elba Hotels brings you three treatments based on age-old techniques to help you recharge your batteries.
Ayurveda, traditional Indian medicine, is increasingly popular among Westerners. It is the oldest traditional medicine still practised. Its philosophy is prevention as opposed to a cure, treating the patient and not the disease, using massage as its essence.
Based on traditional ayurvedic medicine, Elba Costa Ballena offers the Hindu Massage, a soothing massage using essential oils and pindas, ancient techniques for your well-being.
At Elba Hotels we are focused on taking care of you— both your body and mind. Lose those kilos or relax with these tips.
When our bodies begin to notice and show signs of excess, we tend to take care of our diet but don’t increase our sporting activity. The same happens when our minds are not at their best, and often we don’t stop to think about how to deal with it.
We tend to solve problems as quickly as possible, without making severe changes in our daily routine, the key to a fully healthy body and mind. With just a few changes to our day to day lives we can start off the summer stronger than ever!
Here are some tips for a healthier lifestyle.
The benefits of yoga
A total state of well-being is experienced when the mind and body are in full harmony. This is the goal of yoga, a physical discipline that is increasingly attracting more followers thanks to its enormous benefits.
We’ll tell you how to relax thanks to certain beauty and wellness treatments hailing from distant, exotic cultures.
A treatment for each ailment and massages born from the age-old knowledge of other cultures that become therapies to help to alleviate certain pain and discomfort. People are becoming increasingly interested in alternative treatments to address their health problems or, simply, to pamper themselves.
The Hindu cranial massage comes all the way from India to the Thalasso Spa at Elba Estepona. An age-old relaxation technique that focuses on the shoulders, upper arms, neck and head. You can benefit physically, emotionally and mentally with this treatment, which is also based in aromatherapy. But if you are one of those people who like to leave the spa with your batteries recharged, the oriental bamboo massage is for you. It favours energetic rebalancing, and lymphatic and blood circulation.
Find out the spa’s benefits and counter-indications. We’ll also tell you the rules you should follow to enjoy it to the fullest.
A spa is a place of rest that we all need to visit at one time or another, a sanctuary of peace where we must respect the well-being of the other people, just like at any other special place. You know how to act at the cinema or at a restaurant, but do you know how to at a spa?
Enjoy the spa
Towel or robe? The doubt is real. It is best to put on the bathrobe and leave the towel folded under your arm.
We use the latest technology at the Thalasso Spa, so don’t worry if you don’t know how something works. Just ask us— we’re here to help!
Remember, it’s not a pool. You must not swim or race and you must move around calmly. And as for your tone of voice, speak quietly— it’s impossible to disconnect with noise!
Sunlight is beneficial for our health: it stimulates blood circulation, the production of vitamin D, it strengthens our bones, and improves our immune system. However, poor sun protection can lead to serious consequences. As today is the European Day for the Prevention of Skin Cancer, we wanted to share some advice.
Many people do not protect their skin from the sun, with excuses such as being in a rush to get to the water for a quick refreshing splash. This results in many not using any sun cream, or using expired products that no longer work.
Skin cells have memory. This means that sun damage accumulates daily. It all starts with sunburn, which may simply hurt a little, but which can cause premature aging of the skin, allergies, and sunspots and patches that can lead to melanomas.
If you read our blog article about the benefits of Thalassotherapy and the properties of sea water, you will know that it contains all of the essential minerals found, naturally, in the human body; such as copper, zinc, magnesium, sodium, iodide, potassium, calcium and so on. Knowing that, you can imagine what properties a plant growing in the sea must have.
When it comes to sea plants, the most renowned is seaweed or Alga, but when someone mentions seaweed, what ideas come to your mind? Do you think of a weed washed up on the beach? Do you think of health food shops or sushi? Or, do you picture fish feeding on the sea bed somewhere?
No doubt, the idea of seaweed probably makes everyone think of something different. However, if you’ve never an article about Alga and its benefits, you may be surprised to discover that it is one of the oldest living foods to be used, internally and externally to the body, for medicinal purposes; especially throughout China. You may also be surprised to learn that there is a large selection of different types of seaweed; all with their own beneficial properties.
