There are many positive results from tanning. Both indoor and outdoor tanning utilize the same two kinds of ultraviolet light, UVA and UVB rays. Some of the positive benefits of tanning are:
- Improve Self-Confidence by using Twilight Teeth to whiten your smile while you get a healthy glow at the same time! Twilight Teeth is quickly absorbed during your tanning session and whitens effortlessly while you tan. For best results teeth should be clean before treatment and do not eat or drink for 15 minutes after tanning session.
- Increases Serotonin levels. The increase of serotonin, a mood-enhancing hormone, is a positive effect of tanning. Serotonin aides in memory, appetite, and sleep patterns, and improves your mood. Serotonin also reduces carbohydrate cravings and controls appetite.
- Increases Vitamin D levels. Vitamin D is essential for absorbing calcium to prevent osteoporosis and for bone health in general. UV rays are essential for the body to produce vitamin D. Sunlight and sun-tanning beds that emit UV-B are reliable sources of vitamin D. We need about 4,000 units of vitamin D daily. You can get this in about 40 glasses of milk, or multiple vitamin tablets taken daily, or only 4 minutes of UV ray exposure – less than 5 minutes in a tanning bed! This vitamin is found in few foods. Your skin produces vitamin D naturally when exposed to sunlight.
- Improves stress management by forcing you to relax and do absolutely nothing while you are in the tanning bed. Exposure to UV rays helps relieve muscle aches and tension.
- Can improve your sleep; tanning helps the body to regulate the hormones serotonin and melatonin, which aid in healthy sleep cycles. Having well-synchronized circadian rhythms, results in a better quality sleep, daytime alertness, and optimal health in general.
- Can alleviate Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD) symptoms; exposure to UV rays increases the serotonin and melatonin hormones. Sunlight and simulated sunlight doses are a successful treatment for SAD, also known as the “winter blues.” Sunlight exposure has been found to improve low winter moods. Indoor lighting, on the other hand, is generally perceived by the brain as near darkness.
