Benefits of Being Bronzed!
So yes, having a tan looks fantastic, and projects a healthy and attractive skin complexion, yet few realize the great number of benefits that tanning can bring you.
There’s something to looking good equating to feeling good, as it has now been scientifically proven with research showing that tanning stimulates the release of beta-endorphins, our body’s “feel-good” hormones. Which translates to positive psychological effects and well-being, as well as that great sense of elation that comes from an awesome tan.
Meanwhile, an indoor tanning salon carefully regulates the ideal amount of “sunlight” that your body receives as we base your time spent in the beds on your complexion, to assure your skin is safe from damage, burning, and too many harmful rays.
Obviously in the winter, tanning is all the more significant. With the reduction of amount of sunlight available, many people lack vitamin D, a compound that is critical to good health. Vitamin D is produced when your body is exposed to UV rays, which usually come from the sun. Shorter daytime in the winter coupled with most people staying indoors, vitamin D becomes scarce. Research shows that too little vitamin D leads to premature aging, low bone density and possible even cardiovascular disease! Stopping in to Rayz Tanning for less than 20 minutes a few times per week will give you that boost of UV that your skin needs to start making vitamin D.
While we are on the topic of winter, it is wise to mention SAD – season affective disorder – also known as the “winter blues”. This is no joke! The US National Library of Medicine writes “some people experience a serious mood change when the seasons change. People tend to sleep too much, have little energy, and may also feel depressed. If you’ve experienced these symptoms, tanning is a proven way to tackle SAD. Visiting us for a tanning session will give you a summer boost, energize your body with sunshine and give you the power to beat the dead of winter.
In addition to all the fabulous benefits mentioned above, research has shown other advantages to tanning, it has been shown that tanning reduces outbreaks of acne, may lower blood pressure and cholesterol, reduce the skin’s susceptibility to infections and reduce stress.
