Boost your well-being and happiness by increasing your levels of Vitamin D. One 10 minute tanning session can give you all the vitamin D you need for that day.

Did you know the UK is one of the cloudiest countries in the industrialised world. Very little to no UV rays are able to reach us when there is heavy cloud cover or the angle of the sun is too low (Oct-March). This means its very difficult for your body to generate enough Vitamin D for a healthy life. This can leave you feeling low and less motivated (commonly known as Seasonal Effective Disorder) and sometimes lead to depression.

Vitamin D is essential for healthy bones and teeth and also benefits your repository system, nervous system and cardio vascular system. Vitamin D is an essentially vitamin to a healthy and it has been reported that 9 out of 10 Brits are vitamin d officiant (see links below). Other benefits of controlled indoor tanning include;

  • Vitamin D - Responsible tanning increases your natural level of vitamin D, which is produced by your body when your skin is exposed to ultraviolet light. In the UK we get very little vitamin D from the sun and next to non from mid-October to mid-April due to the angle of the sun. This is known as SAD seasonal Affective Disorder.
  • Reduces Heart Disease - There are strong indications that responsible tanning increase the metabolism, which causes blood pressure and levels of cholesterol to decrease.
  • Feel Good - Responsible tanning can increase the feeling of well being. It boost serotonin levels, the body’s happy hormone. The warmth also relaxes body and mind and therefore is an excellent tool against stress and exhaustion.
  • Lose Weight - Higher levels of serotonin in your body not only make you feel happy, but it also suppresses the appetite so you will eat much less in warmer weather or after a sun session.
  • Bone Structure - Vitamin D helps the body to absorb calcium. Calcium strengthens bones and teeth and helps to reduce the risk of osteoporosis.
  • Relieve Pain-  Responsible tanning makes muscles more flexible and eases stiffness. It works as a pain reliever for cases of rheumatism and muscular pain.
  • Boosts Your Immune System - Responsible tanning stimulates the production of white blood cells, which fight bacteria and viruses, causing the immune system to improve significantly.
  • Skin Disorders Responsible - tanning may improve some skin disorders e.g. Psoriasis acne and certain allergy types.
  • Prepare for Summer Holidays - A tanned skin is the bodys own protection mechanism to limit the risk of over exposure of the sun during the summer. Pre tanning in the controlled environment of a salon will give your skin the best protection.
