GET YOUR TAN ON – 10 Benefits of tanning
Oh yes, time to get your tan on! Did you know that there are a lot of healthy benefits to responsible tanning? Whether you’re going to relax in the outdoor sun or under an indoor tanningbed, taking in sufficient UV light is important!

In todays article, we’ll be listing no less than 10 benefits of responsible tanning.
1. It increases your vitamin D intake
Properly exposing your skin to UV light is the most natural and efficient way to increase your vitamin D intake. Vitamin D is also called the ‘sunshine vitamin’. It is the only vitamin that the body can produce under the influence of UV light.
2. It improves your bone structure
Sunlight ensures that calcium can attach to your bones up to 40% better. This gives you less chance of problems such as erosion and fragility and your nails and teeth will become stronger!
3. It reduces heart problems
Dr. Krause from the Benjamin Franklin University Hospital in Berlin has conducted research into the positive effects of sunlight on cardiovascular diseases. What turned out? The chance of thrombosis, heart attacks and strokes is severely less when you use the tanning bed responsibly!
4. It makes you happy
Happy thoughts only! UV light acts as a natural antidepressant method. It increases serotonin values, which is the body’s own happiness hormone!
5. It helps with weight loss
Wait, what? Yup, UV light stimulates the thyroid, this boosts metabolism which causes more calories to be burned. Good reason to tan occasionally!
6. It prepares your skin for the outside sun
A tanning bed session in preparation for your holiday? A very good idea! The UV radiation from the sunbed ensures that your skin thickens. This thickening provides better protection against the outside sun. This means that you will burn less quickly!
7. It soothes pain
Did you know weak muscles and muscle cramps are among the very first symptoms of a lack of vitamin D? Responsible tanning-behavior ensures the production of this vitamin. As a result, the sunbed works to relieve pain in muscle aches and cramps.
8. It improves your immune system
Are you easily susceptible to colds or the flu? Chances are that your body makes too little solitrol. This hormone, which is activated by UV light, gives a boost to your immune system. This allows you to build up additional resistance against viruses, parasites and bacteria.
9. It treats skin diseases
Do you suffer from acne, psoriasis, allergies or impure skin? UV light is the solution! It is a widely used method to combat skin diseases and skin problems. Go to a professional Ergoline solarium in your area for customized advice!
10. It reduces the risk of cancer
Last, but not least! The KWF Kankerbestrijding recently concluded the following: “exposure to sunlight is associated with a lower risk of breast, colon and prostate cancer”. It has been proven that sufficient vitamin D significantly reduces the risk of these forms of cancer.
