Did you know that indoor tanning has benefits beyond making you look and feel great? Many of the benefits of controlled UVB exposure can improve how you feel, and your overall health!
We encourage our clients to be educated on the practice of smart tanning and the benefits of regulated exposure to UV light in our tanning units. Benefits linked directly to smart tanning unit use are:
• excellent source of Vitamin D;
• light therapy for seasonal depression;
• helps with multiple skin ailments, including acne, psoriasis, eczema;
• creates a base tan as a barrier against intense UV rays from the sun
The Silent Epidemic
There is mounting evidence that Vitamin D deficiency is becoming an epidemic in North American society. Reality is, many of us work indoors in our modern world, and being as we are situated so far from the equator, the number of months where we can get significant UVB exposure from sunlight outdoors is limited. The benefits of indoor tanning, beyond the obvious cosmetic ones, are helping to solve this problem in our sun-lacking world!
Tanning is D-Lightful
Indoor tanning exposes the skin to two different types of radiation: UVA and UVB. UVB exposure induces the production of vitamin D in the skin. It has been estimated that tens of thousands of premature deaths occur in North America annually from a range of cancers due to vitamin D deficiency. Another effect of vitamin D deficiency is bad absorption of calcium which can lead to bone diseases. Since we can't possibly get enough UVB exposure through sunlight, or vitamin D through food consumption, indoor tanning is the best way to stay healthy and looking great year-round!
The most important things to remember to keep your indoor tanning experience a safe one, are how long you tan for, how frequently, what lotions to use before and after tanning, and what type of protective eyewear you should use. All of our beds are rated to a maximum tanning time, and our staff will ensure that you start off slowly depending on your skin type. We can provide you with advice on which lotions and creams are best for your skin type and tanning goals. In addition, wearing goggles is mandatory in our salon.
