Stay Out of the Sun When Travelling

The purpose of any travel is to experience new countries and their cultures, and perhaps enjoy some much-needed hot weather. However, if you are unprepared for the ferocity of the sun, being used to the damp and dreary weather of the UK, you may be in for a shock. Not only can you suffer sunburn, but the after-effects can result in long term damage. If you are actually caught up in the excitement of travelling, you may forget the necessary use of skincare.

When packing your case in preparation for that exotic destination, don’t forget to include a good moisturiser and after sun lotion. The area around the eyes is particularly susceptible to damage. While exploring tourist sites, you will need to ensure your sunglasses are close at hand. Having returned to your hotel, it is definitely a good idea to use a specific cream, such as the anti-ageing Verso super eye serum to combat any unwanted wrinkles.

Travelling can undoubtedly be an exciting adventure, but it is wise to invest in your skincare, even if it takes time away from your itinerary. That way, on your return, you will have a healthy glow with no lasting damage, ready to plan your next vacation.

Travelling With Osteoarthritis

Everyone likes to go on holiday, but if you suffer from a medical condition such as osteoarthritis, you will need to plan your trip carefully to avoid undue stress. Some holiday destinations may not be suitable for your condition. If you plan to go away for any length of time, you must ensure that you take your osteoarthritis medications with you.

Visiting Great Britain

Travelling in Great Britain can be very rewarding for people with osteoarthritis since there are areas such as York which are mostly flat, and wheelchair-friendly. Visit the cathedral and the various museums, and you are sure to have a great time.


Undoubtedly, this condition can be challenging to manage. Still, with the right treatment using a combination of drugs and exercise, there is no reason why you should not consider a welcome holiday. Also, consider travelling abroad to visit many of the foreign destinations famous with tourists. It is well-known that a warmer climate can benefit all forms of arthritis, and as long as you choose the right place to visit, “the world is your oyster”. Don’t let the condition hold you back from taking a holiday!

Travel Agents

Before booking any holiday, consider if your travel agent is knowledgeable about osteoarthritis and what accommodation and destinations are best suited to you. If you have trouble with stairs or need wheelchair access make sure the travel agent

is aware of your needs before you book your holiday. Some companies may specialise in holidays for less-able people, and, as such, could offer valuable advice about suitable places to visit and stay.

With careful planning and research, there is a place for everyone to experience a great holiday.
