Most people agree that a tan makes a person look more healthy, more successful, and just overall gives a person a better look. So aside from the cosmetic side of tanning are there some other reasons why you should tan specifically in a tanning bed? Yes, as a matter of fact there is!
UV light put off by both the sun and indoor tanning beds has been shown not only to increase vitamin D production in your body but has also been shown to have other benefits to your mental and physical health.
With depression so rampant nowadays everyone is looking for other ways of naturally treating it. So many times doctors just want to throw pills at everything when there are more natural ways of treating diseases and mental illnesses that often have far less side effects.
UV light like the light put off by tanning beds has been shown to help people suffering from depression not only by boosting vitamin D production but from the experience of it as well. Many people say that tanning makes them feel comfortable, relaxed, and that they really do enjoy just kicking back and enjoying the warmth while they tan.
Another common ailment tanning can help with is SAD (seasonal affective disorder). SAD is very similar to depression but it typically occurs during the winter months when daylight is less. Tanning is a great way to bring back some of the summer during winter months to help treat SAD.
