Intercontinental Fiji Golf Resort & Spa Is Mainland Fiji’s Most Luxurious Hotel

Fiji is a beautiful island nation comprised of more than 300 islands, only two-thirds of which are inhabited. There are hotels on Fiji for all kinds of travelers, and those on the outer islands require taking an additional flight (perhaps a seaplane) or boat after arriving at Nadi airport. But there are a handful of luxury properties on Fiji’s main island, Viti Levu, and the Intercontinental Fiji Golf Resort & Spa is the most luxurious of them all, less than an hour’s drive from the airport.

Set on Natadola Bay, Viti Levu’s best swimming beach, the Intercon (as it’s fondly referred to) is positioned to offer the ultimate beach vacation — literally. Oceanfront rooms allow you to step out your door onto the beach, while up on the hillside, a private club awaits. Whatever your travel M.O., the Intercontinental delivers on world-class service in the friendliest, most Fijian of styles (singing is often involved).

Walking around the grounds — or taking the “Bula Bus” that continuously encircles the large property shuttling guests from their rooms to restaurants, the spa, or the beach — you’ll have your choice of multiple venues at which to spend your time. There’s an adults-only pool right on the beach (and a beach activity stand where you can book all watersports), a family pool across the way, and beachfront loungers right on the sand, all of which offer food and beverage service throughout the day. The club has its own dedicated pool that’s open until 5pm. At cocktail hour, it becomes the backdrop for live music.

7 Ways CBD Can Fight Acne

Acne is a four-letter word to most everyone. It’s the most common skin ailment. According to the National Institutes of Health (NIH), about 80% of people between the ages of 11 and 30 have outbreaks of acne at least occasionally. For some people, however, the disorder continues to rear its ugly head into their 40s and 50s.

Acne is a disease of the pilosebaceous units (PSUs), which are found just under the skin and contain sebaceous glands that are connected to hair follicles. The sebaceous glands empty onto the skin via hair follicles. When the glands become overactive (because of hormones and other factors), blockages of sebum and dead skin cells happen. That, in turn, triggers an immune reaction, which causes inflammation and sometimes infection.

Although acne is not usually a serious health condition, it can cause significant emotional distress and permanent scarring of the skin. Fortunately, products with cannabidiol (CBD) can help. Research has concluded that CBD can be beneficial for various skin problems, including acne.

1. Helps Regulate Skin Functions

CBD penetrates the skin readily and affects the body’s endocann­abinoid system (ECS). Besides the ECS’ role in regulating physiological processes (such as pain, mood, sleep and digestion), research has indicated it also helps maintain balance across certain skin functions.

2. Decreases Skin’s Sebum Production

Shown to reduce sebum production, CBD can help minimize acne outbreaks. CBD inhibits secretions by the cells that secrete sebum (called “sebocytes”). It does this by activating the cells’ ion channels, which facilitates the flow of calcium to the sebocytes. That, in turn, suppresses lipid synthesis (a process with a known connection to causing acne).
