Going on planned spa trips and vacations can do more than just provide you the much-needed relaxation. It can also help treat your skin condition that is called psoriasis. Did you know that there are different spa enters around the world that offer psoriasis treatments? Aside from having a great spa, you also have the chance to sunbathe and or enjoy relaxing and stress-relieving salt water and mineral baths. Here are the five places where you can have your vacation and at the same time have your psoriasis treatment.

Soap Lake, Washington

Soap Lake has no centres for psoriasis treatment. It is also located in the desert. However despite these heartbreaking facts, a lot of people still come here to have do-it-yourself treatments. For one, between the months of June and August, people go there to give themselves a bath in the lake - when the temperature is between 80 and 90 degrees.  The lake, experts say, has 25 minerals all in all. What do-it-yourself enthusiasts can do is apply mudpacks on the part of their skin that needs the treatment. Then, they can lie on the east or west beach. Others pack some of the mud home for future use. 

The Dead Sea, Israel

This has been the most famous place where you can have your psoriasis treatment. There are numerous hotels, spas, and clinics around the place where you can have your psoriasis treatments. People usually go to this place with the hope of having a better skin condition afterwards. It is known that the Dead Sea's salt content and light exposure can help in the treatment.

Avéne Spa Center, France

This centre provides psoriasis treatment by using natural water from a nearby thermal spring in all their mineral baths and sprays. A patient can also drink their mineral-rich water, having body wraps that are rich in emollient, and getting massages underwater. However, you have to plan your visit to this centre as it only opens from April to October of every year. Avéne Spa also has a 21-day psoriasis-treatment program. 

The Blue Lagoon, Reykjavik, Iceland

Somewhere in the capitol of Iceland lies a centre that was especially built for patients with psoriasis. The Blue Lagoon opened in 2005 with the goal of treating psoriasis. You can swim and take a bath in the lagoon which is filled with minerals and geothermal seawater. You also have the power to apply psoriasis-specific skin-care products. Lastly, you can have for yourself some ultraviolet (UV) light therapy. Since you are on a spa-vacation trip, stay in the place for about four weeks and get the most out of what Blue Lagoon and Iceland have to offer.

La Roche Posay Spa, France

Another option you might want to check out while in France is the La Roche Posay Spa. This spa centre also offers psoriasis treatments that are rich in minerals. Like Avéne Spa Centre, they also have mineral-rich water, baths, and showers. They also offer detoxification and natural sunlight treatments. They also have a 3-week or 21-day treatment programs. They have been considered to be the most important spa centre in Europe as they accept both children and adult with the skin condition. Here, you will also find shops, casinos, entertainment and recreational centres, and other stress-relieving places. Studies show that relieving stress can also help in treating your psoriasis flares.
