The World’s Coldest Location to Visit

Would you like to experience the opposite to a tropical vacation spot? The Oymyaokn village, known as the Pole of Cold, in Russia, is considered to be the coldest inhabited place in the world.

Therefore, whether you are bored with warm and relaxing resorts or you just met the man or woman of your dreams on a Russian dating website like https://bridesdating.com/ and plan to visit Russia, you will be satisfied with this trip and will have a unique experience.

 

 

While U.S. kids are riding horses, Russian kids in Oymyaokn are busy riding deers. Don’t think the Oymyaokn residents are doing nothing but sit indoors and keep warm. Not even close! They live their lives just as other people around the world do.

It is obvious that Oymyaokn is not an agricultural village, so people mostly eat meat and fish. Their local milk is really nutritious, so locals don’t get that cold in Oymyaokn and easily substitute fruits and vegetables.

So here are some fun facts you should know about Oymyaokn –

  • Once you are in Oymyaokn, you won’t have a great variety of malls or stores to go shopping, sorry Fashionistas. There is only 1 single shop in the village, providing locals with all the necessary stuff.
  • Power works perfectly well.
  • The station also uses coal and wood. It is really important for the station to work constantly. If the power ceases, all the utilities and pipes get frozen and crash in about 5 hours.
  • Most locals still use outdoor toilets.

 

So why is Oymyaokn so attractive to tourists?

The main attraction is Oymyaokn’s freezing temperature. The constant frost makes the village look like a fairy tale. Everything – from trees to cars – is covered in hoarfrost. Thus, every little spot is sparkling in a sunny weather, which is a beauty to behold!

Another attraction is Oymyaokn’s thermal spring. The thermal springs is so popular because the average temperature is -52 C. It is the only place where farmers can graze cows actually. The thermal spring for locals serves as a kind of oasis in a desert.

One more spectacular thing to view in Oymyaokn is the Road of Bones. You can view this beautiful spot right on your way to the village. The thing is that the fir trees are totally covered with a thick layer of graze, which makes them look like white bones of some huge prehistoric animals on the white snow.

It would amazing to experience the freezing lifestyle of Oymyaokn’s people. It sounds and looks like a scene from the Frozen movie. I can see myself loving it.

 

 

If you are in need of a frozen holiday, go to Oymyaokn or Yakutsk, the nearest city, and have a feel of how the locals live their lives. Where else on earth will you see owners running their cars all the day long for fear not to be able to restart them? I can only imagine.

4 top tips to keep a great complexion as you approach 30

Although ageing slows down the collagen production that keeps our skin looking healthy and young, there are a few ways that you can help to slow this natural process down. Here are 4 top tips that will make sure your complexion stays fresh as you begin to approach the big 3 0.

 

 

  1. Moisturise twice a day

The older we are, the harder it is for our skin to retain mositure. This is why it’s vital to moisturise your skin in the morning and at night. For your morning routine, use an SPF moisturiser under your primer before you apply your makeup. This will lock in moisture throughout the day. At night, it’s best to use a thicker cream as it is during this time that your skin repairs itself. As you are moisturising, ensure you massage your face as this will boost the production of collagen, which will make the skin look plumper and stimulate the lymph glands that help you achieve clearer skin.

 

  1. Be friends with SPF

You would have probably heard how important it is to keep your skin protected from the sun. Sun damage is the single biggest factor in premature ageing and leaving your skin unprotected can lead to problems such as hyperpigmentation, wrinkling, sagging and poor skin tone. There are a lot of foundations and moisturisers on the market that contain an element of SPF which means that you don’t have to apply a thick layer of sunscreen to your face every day.

 

  1. Eat the right foods

It’s certainly true that your diet directly affects the health of your skin. Eat foods that are rich in nutrients and amino acids and, if you haven’t already, introduce fibrous produce such as kale, sprouts and apples into your diet. Reduce your alcohol intake and cut back on the amount of sugar you consume as this can cause premature ageing through a process known as glycation. During glycation, excess sugar in the blood attaches itself to lipids, nucleic acids and proteins which advance the ageing process and lead to wrinkly skin. You can also pick up these nutrients through certain skincare products. Vegan skincare products in particular often include many natural ingredients such as chlorophyll, kale and maca root extracts that deliver essential vitamins to your skin.

 

  1. Take care of your eyes

The skin around our eyes is the thinnest and delicate on our face, and it is often the area that shows ageing the most. Keeping that part of the skin hydrated is important and can be done by using a serum or eye cream before bed. As you sleep, the formula sinks into the skin and decreases the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Plus, a good quality eye cream can protect the area from further damage, especially if it includes natural ingredients such as cucumber, arnica and ginseng, that can instantly hydrate and reduce puffiness.
