Mind Body Relaxation
The warm feeling from tanning helps relax core muscles therefore releasing built up tension, which automatically relaxes the mind.
“Calm mind brings inner strength and self-confidence, so that’s very important for good health.”
Indoor Tanning naturally enhances protection against sunburn. Melanin literally enshrouds skin cells protecting them from getting too much UV exposure. Additionally, as the skin tans the outer layer thickens, which also is nature’s design to make tan skin naturally more resistant to sunburn.
As most tanners know, a suntan multiplies the effectiveness of sunscreen in outdoor sunburn prevention. For example, an SPF 15 product applied to the skin of a person whose base suntan has already made her two-to-four times more resilient to sunburn creates a “net SPF” of about 30-60.
Vitamin D is “The Sunshine Vitamin” and most sunbeds, just like sunlight, emit enough UVB light to trigger natural vitamin D production in your skin. While you may not need to become tan to make vitamin D, and while vitamin D supplements are another option, you should know that most people who tan in equipment that emits UVB will make vitamin D.
There’s a reason we look forward to the coming of spring and sunny summer days. Exposure to UV not only makes you look better, it makes you feel great. By looking better, we naturally feel better about ourselves. Sunlight exposure can also lift our spirits in ways that go beyond a beautiful tan.
