Indoor Tanning Bed Benefits

Some people have negative opinions about indoor tanning beds, but they often neglect to understand the benefits that come with indoor tanning.

In this post, we will discuss some of the benefits that make indoor tanning such a popular modaility in the beauty industry.

Vitamin D Production

Everyone knows that Vitamin D is the sunshine vitamin. It is naturally produced in your body through exposure to UV rays from sunlight.

It is imperative that you get your daily dose of Vitamin D because it is critical to supporting your bodily functions. Vitamin D promotes Calcium absorption to prevent diseases like Rickets and Osteoporosis.

Times have changed dramatically and now it’s more common than ever to spend your entire day in a building or office setting. Indoor occupations reduce your exposure to natural sunlight and can negatively affect your health.

Using an indoor tanning bed can help your body produce the Vitamin D it needs to maintain a strong and healthy lifestyle.

Preventing Overexposure

We know how important sunshine is for our health, but too much exposure to UV rays from the sun can cause more harm than good.

Overexposure to sunlight can lead to potentially dangerous skin cancers, heat exhaustion, heat stroke, and inflammation on parts of your body that aren’t protected by clothing or sunscreen.

At a dedicated tanning salon like Westside Tan, you will have access to state-of-the-art equipment that is designed and programmed to protect your from the dangers of overexposure.

The tanning beds will provide an even tan over your entire body for the appropriate amount of time. Some tanning beds can even detect your skin tone and automatically adjust the lights and temperatures to give you the optimal tan for your skin.

Avoiding Sunburns

Sunburns come from overexposure to the sun and are not only painful, but harmful as well. They can produce blisters, swelling, tenderness, itching, headache, fever, and nausea.

Skin cancer is also linked to repeated sunburns and overexposure. It is more common in women than in men, especially on the leg areas due to differences in dressing for the outdoors.
