Benefits of Getting Your Tan On

Jul 11, 2019 | Blog

Even though having a nice dark tan can look and feel great, there are so many other benefits to getting your glow on – than just having tan skin.

Vitamin D

Most people know that we need Vitamin D for energy and for daily function, and while humans make 90% of their Vitamin D naturally from sunlight exposure (UVB light), but recently people spend less time in the sun than any other time in history. This is why over 1 billion people worldwide are Vitamin D deficient. Vitamin D keeps your bones strong as well as prevents osteoporosis, cancer, and heart disease. Using a UV Tanning bed with a high rate of UVB rays will produce 200x more Vitamin D in a 10-minute session than one glass of milk. Get your glow on and feel great about it!

Helps Treat Skin Conditions

Using a tanning bed regularly can help treat Eczema and Psoriasis with light therapy. These skin conditions can be helped, especially as light therapy can soothe the itching, scaling, and swelling! Schedule a visit with your dermatologist for prescriptions and learn more about light therapy, as the combination with medication can help alleviate the symptoms. UVB light has been proven to clear large areas of psoriasis and calm the skin. Using alternative treatments and systemic medications can possibly be extremely harmful and toxic to the body – the natural use of light and sun exposure could be a much better solution.

Did you know even Kim Kardashian has used tanning beds to help clear her psoriasis – as it is one of the only things that has worked? 

Reduces Symptoms of SAD

Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD), is a type of depression that occurs due to the change of the seasons and progresses to become more severe. Although it is most apparent in fall and winter if begins to manifest in the spring and summer months. The symptoms of SAD can include: Irritability, oversleeping, lethargy, losing interest in activities you used to enjoy and participate in, change in appetite, and other things. One of the greatest factors in SAD is the lack of Vitamin D – which can be helped with the exposure to sunlight and light rays.

Look Good & Feel Great!

Tanning will always make you look good, as it helps even out skin tone and gives you more of a ‘healthy glow’. When tanning, this also releases endorphins that help trigger the brain to say “this feels great” which will boost your confidence and make you feel incredible.

Tan in Moderation

Although there are wonderful benefits to tanning in a tanning bed, it is always recommended to take the advice of our tanning consultants about the length of session, which lotions to use, and how to improve your tan even more.
