You're Less Likely to Get a Sunburn
With an elevation of -1,410 feet below sea level, the Dead Sea's shoreline is literally the lowest point on dry land.
"Because of this, ultraviolet exposure is not that bad, which means you can spend a lot of hours in the sun without getting burned," says Zaken. "This is why people with psoriasis and skin problems are coming to the Dead Sea. They are actually not in the water, but are instead sunbathing."
To be clear, you can certainly get burnt at the Dead Sea if you're outside without sunscreen all day long. However, the extremely low elevation does make the sun less potent.
