7 Reasons the Beach is Good for You - Book a Beach Holiday and wear Kaftans all day on holiday
1 Vitamin D from Sunlight = Vitamin Sea
The essential vitamin for healthy bones, recent research also suggests that sunny star nutrient vitamin D can also help prevent depression and protect against colds.
The most natural way to boost your vitamin D is to expose bare skin to sunlight (obviously with the appropriate level of sun-tan lotion!)So how much more enjoyable can it get than strolling along the beach, paddling in the surf with the knowledge that you are boosting this essential nutrient; #Sunshine is the best medicine!
2 Sand is Nature's Exfoliant
We all long for skin that is polished to perfection, and spend a small fortune searching for the perfect exfoliator. However, why not wait until you arrive beachside and indulge in nature’s very own free exfoliator… sand?
A barefoot walk on the beach is not only hyper-restorative for the soul, but also incredibly beneficial for the soles of the feet.....Afterwards you could sit on the beach, and using handfuls of sand, gently exfoliate your skin using small circular motions. Rinse with plenty of cool water, and make sure that you apply a good moisturiser and sunscreen post scrubbing. You will have the smoothest, glowing skin in no time! Try combining sand with #CoconutoOill or #OliveOil for a super indulgent 100% natural body scrub.
3 Soothe the Soul
One of the miraculous benefits of being close to the sea is that it inspires contemplation and creativity, giving you time to reflect – with no agenda, no goal and no specific purpose; just utter tranquility that will allow your mind and soul to recharge.
Whilst lying on the beach or lounging beside an outdoor pool, the warmth of the sun positively affects our endocrine system - the part of our body which secretes endorphins. These naturally occurring chemicals relive stress and enhance pleasure, producing spontaneous feelings of happiness, and even euphoria.
4 Sleep - A Cure All
“Sleep is the best meditation.” – DALAI LAMA
If you've ever wondered why we always sleep more soundly after spending the day on the beach, it really is due to the sea air. Sea air is charged with healthy negative ions that accelerate the body’s ability to absorb oxygen. These same negative ions also balance our levels of seratonin, a natural body chemical that is linked with mood, appetite, depression and insomnia. During and after a holiday you feel more alert, relaxed and energized, and it’s all down to the wonder of serotonin.
5 The Wonder of Anti-Ageing
Salt water has long been renowned for its healing properties, but what is perhaps less commonly known is that seawater is packed with anti-aging minerals that can help protect against wrinkles, sagging skin and maintain elasticity. It may not be as transformative as chemical or invasive procedures, but a regular swim in seawater will help keep your body noticeably tighter and firmer – and all for free!
Seaweed is also full of nutrients, including vitamins C and E, which moisturise, boost collagen production and help prevent UV damage. Its anti-inflammatory properties are particularly beneficial to rosacea and acne sufferers.
6 Beach Fit
This one is not exactly a scientific fact, but tends to be a rule of thumb. Whilst at the beach we all tend to move around a lot more than whilst sat at a desk, in a car, or watching TV at home.
Walking on the beach is proven to give you a better workout than walking on the pavement, grass or other hard-surface. “Walking on sand requires 1.6-2.5 times more mechanical work than does walking on a hard surface at the same speed.” – THE JOURNAL OF EXPERIMENTAL BIOLOGY.
That is besides all the extra fitness activities that we often only indulge in at the beach; surfing, jogging, horse-riding, frisbee, and beach volley or football are all great ways to tone up whilst soaking up the sun.
7 You May Not Know...Walking barefoot is a real feelgood experience that is also known as earthing. Skin is a natural conductor, and in days gone by, when people walked barefoot, the ball of the foot, a natural acupuncture point, was in direct contact with the ground, therefore essentially grounding the body.
Whilst grounded, the earth’s free electrons transfer to the body, these free electrons are the most naturally occurring antioxidants known to man – their benefits perhaps unrivalled, boosting the immune system, preventing inflammation and aiding antiaging.
In today’s society, we pretty much always wear shoes, even in the summertime, whether it be sandals, jellyshoes or flipflops… except when we’re on the beach, so kick off your shoes, and feel the sand between your toes, you’ll be improving your health far more than you realise.

SPOTTED 🌴 the lovely Courtney Green of ITVBE Towie wearing her Marrakech Cotton Kaftan on the beaches of Mauritius. See Courtney's photos @CourtneyMGreen on twitter.

Top 4 Last Minute Holiday Beauty Tips
Here are our quick tips to get gorgeous and beach ready for your next Beach Holiday. Whether you are off island-hopping, cruising around the Caribbean or just planning to lounge poolside, you will want to look your most glamorous so here are some ideas to quickly fit your beachwear preparation into everyday life.
Exfoliation really is key, and something that is best done year round. But if you have been neglecting this, fear not, a few applications in the shower will help your skin in no time. Follow up with a good, intensive moisturiser, concentrating on any really dry areas such as knees and elbows. Weleda Rose Body Oil is a great natural product for intensively moisturising and believe us, it works, your legs will be gleaming in no time.
2. Self-Tan/Spray Tan
Everyone feels more confident with a subtle glow but we don't always have the time to to apply self-tan. Which is why the new St Tropez Gradual Tan In Shower (£14.50) is a breath of fresh air. All you need to do is lather it on mid-shower, leave it for three minutes and then rinse it off again. The concept sounds incredible but the MyaBlueBeach team have tried it and can completely recommend it!
If this sounds too much like hard work, make like the celebs and book in for a spray tan a couple of days before you leave. This way you can achieve a beautiful even all over bronze, before you even set foot on the beach.
3. Lash Extensions
Inspired by celebs, eyelash extensions are one of the most straightforward ways of ensuring holiday glamour. Wake up looking wide-eyed and luscious, with no concerns about the dreaded panda-eyes. One of the very best is suemarsh.com who has gained a global reputation for her work with everyone from celebrities to beauty editors.
Glossy, gleaming nails are a must on holiday, what else is there to do but gaze at the gently lapping waves behind your coral toes? However, the last thing you want to worry about, no matter how long your vacation, is chipped nail varnish. So invest in Urban Retreat’s Everlasting Manicure and Pedicure, a steal at £55 as it can last up to a month. Our favourite colour this season is bright coral.
Hope you enjoy your holidays, the MyaBlueBeach team xx

Georgia Jones wears MyaBlueBeach
Georgia Jones wears MyaBlueBeach on honeymoon with Danny Jones of McFly.
Georgia Jones became friends with the MyaBlueBeach team after modelling for their 2013 beachwear campaign and considering MyaBlueBeach designs the best cover-ups, we decided to made Georgia a special dress as a honeymoon gift. The beautiful couple jetted off to two exotic honeymoon locations, Dubai and the Maldives after their stunning wedding seen in this week's Hello Magazine.
The dress is hand tie dyed in shades of pink and aqua with a honeymoon heart motif running down the front and back. Hundreds of black and white beads were hand sewn to decorate the back and neckline of the dress.
The cap sleeves can cover the shoulders to protect from too much sun and can also be drawn to create a sleeveless dress. Both the sleeves and the back tie have matching back and white beads.
The Georgia dress is perfect for every holiday occasion and destination, wear in the daytime for a stroll to the beach, for apres beach cocktails and Ibiza sunsets, and exotic honeymoon getaways.

Jemma Cotton Tunic featured in Yorkshire Post
Jemma is a 100% Fitted Cotton Tunic in several colour options with robe embroidery. The Short sleeves are cut to define the waistline and the side splits make the style easy to take off and wear as a beach cover-up or by the poolside. The neckline detail draws the eye away from the tummy and hips, creating a strong lean silhouette.
Jemma can be worn on its own as a beach dress, and as the style is slightly more fitted than most beach kaftans, Jemma also looks great with slim fitting trousers. For a looser fitting style, if the tummy and hips are trouble areas we suggest increasing a dress size.
Jemma comes in several colours: Pistachio with White, Lime with White, Orange with White, Pink with White, Royal Blue with White, Turquoise with White, Violet with White, Turquoise with Pink embroidery.

Barbados Beach Ready
MyablueBeach has just landed back in the UK from an amazing trip to Barbados. The beaches are white and the sky is most definitely blue! The sun is so strong whatever your shape and size you really do need to cover up.
For breakfast I would suggest a dress or tunic such as Tahiti, Kirti or Olympia, simple styles to cover up for a dining room. For the walk to the beach a strapless dress such as Safa Atheni or Marley is a great choice to avoid strap marks. Roll up a long sleeved kaftan in your beach bag such as Medina or add a touch of tropical colour with Alexa in cool cotton.
Whatever your dress style you will need these styles for Carribean holidays

Mya Blue Beach says Embrace Autumn ...Book a Holiday
The sudden drop in temperature has been a bit of a shock to the system in England. With more and more people taking holidays outside of traditional summer time, October to January sees a rise in Exotic locations being booked and a need for beach cover-ups and beach dresses all year round.
Grab some winter sun such as a spa weekend in Southern Spain, or a longer weekend in five star luxury in November in Dubai and spend New Year in St Bartz or Vegas
Mya Blue Beach has the perfect pieces for each destination.
Inject some colour with a cotton strapless dress like CoCo or a beach kaftan like Marrakech. We suggest Amore for long haul places such as Dubai to cover up whilst walking through the hotel, an Atheni dress for the beaches of St Bartz and for that quick hit of sun in Spain or the Canaries an Electra Kaftan is a great tunic for that transeasonal piece to take you through daytime to evening.
Happy Holiday !
