The Positive Effects of Tanning

The Positive Effects of Tanning

As spring approaches, it seems there is one question on individuals' minds: why do people go tanning? What about all those negative aspects of tanning? Do individuals who tan realize the danger involved? Well, looking at the positive aspects of tanning, one might be able to understand better. If you choose to visit a tanning salon please make sure the owner has taken out adequate tanning salon insurance should any accidents occur.. 

The warning about tanning beds has been poorly understood in the past. For instance, all of the cancer horror stories (especially skin cancer) that you hear about all came from individuals who went about tanning outdoor under the sun. 20 to 30 years ago almost everyone that went out in the sun for tanning would get burnt. This is what causes cancer, the repetitiveness of getting sun burnt.

Now for the Positive Side To Tanning 

Of note, moderate sunlight exposure as sunbathing for a limited time or as delivered by tanning beds has never been attributed to cancer. Burning and overexposure have been linked to skin cancer. However, with Sunoco Tanning Beds you can adjust the optimal exposure to minimize the potential risks and therefore attain the only positive effects of the sun.

Sunlight is a rich source of Vitamin D, which is important to absorption of calcium. Calcium is the main ingredient in maintaining healthy teeth and bone structure. Your body synthesizes vitamin D when you are exposed to the ultraviolet B rays in sunlight. You probably need from 10 to 30 minutes of exposure to the skin (without sunscreen) two times every week. Traditionally, this important vitamin deficiency has been linked to rickets, a disease in which the bone doesn’t properly mineralize, leading to fragile bones and skeletal deformities. Symptoms of muscle weakness and bone pain can mean you are deficient in vitamin D. However, for many individuals, the symptoms are subtle. Even without symptoms, too little vitamin can induce health risks. Low blood levels of the vitamin D have been associated with the following symptoms:

Say yes to a scrub

The first step to the spring-ready skin is to shed your winter skin! Before you lament over your lack of pre-summer soft skin, go DIY. You can quickly make an at-home body scrub to slough off the last of winter’s dull skin. Choose either salt or sugar (sugar will be slightly gentler on the skin) and an organic oil of choice. We suggest olive and coconut oils for their richness. Coconut oil sugar scrub does a great exfoliating job, as it slough off all dead skin cells and give you a new, fresh look.

    Mix one part oil (of your choice) to two parts sugar or salt in a container. The contents will separate, which is entirely normal. Add two to three drops of your essential oil of choice. We love grapefruit or lavender. Now you have a pure and divine DIY body scrub to enhance your experience of next shower.

At-home hydrotherapy

Several spa treatments either start or end with some kind of hydrotherapy. Usually, it involves starting off in a warm pool and then plunging into a cooler one to boost circulation. You are left feeling relaxed yet energized, but you do not have to hit the spa for that to happen. All you need is hit the showers at your home.

    Start with a hot shower (not too hot but pleasantly warm) for one minute. Now, switch to cold water for 15 to 30 seconds. Repeat three to five minutes. Emerge feeling ready to face the long spring day!

Make it a mask

Treatment masks, whether applied at a spa or purchased from a beauty store, can be pricey, but you do not need to dip into your purse to treat your skin.

    For an effective and cheap dry skin solution, add one tablespoon of yogurt in a mashed avocado. Mix well, apply and leave on for five to ten minutes. Rinse well and use your regular moisturizer.

Steam and tone skin

Instead of wasting hard-earned money on products meant to get your skin glowing, do it all on your own. Steam your skin (you don’t even need a steamer) to open the clogged pores and boost circulation.
