Not long ago, those who were in search of glowing golden skin spent hours outdoors soaking up the sun’s rays to achieve their desired look. While this method of tanning is certainly effective, it is not always as safe as indoor tanning. Although there are many misconceptions about indoor tanning, there are many benefits related to spray tanning and tanning in a bed.

Five Indoor Tanning Benefits

Reduce Your Odds of Overexposure

Everyone is familiar with the increased risk of skin cancer that comes from spending too much time out in the sun, and there is nothing worse than a lobster-red sunburn. When tanning outdoors, many people risk overexposure to UV rays. This is because it is all too easy to lose track of time and forget to re-apply your sunscreen. When you choose to tan at a reputable tanning salon, the FDA’s recommended guidelines for UV exposure will be explained to you, and there are strict policies in place to prevent dangerous overexposure.

Boost Your Mood

Lack of UV exposure not only prevents you from getting the tan that you desire, but it turns out that it can actually affect your mood. Conditions like Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD) can leave us feeling down and lethargic, and more people experience this condition during the winter months when the hours of daylight are limited. This is because we need UV light to maintain adequate levels of vitamin D. Indoor tanning can help stimulate the production of this vitamin, which may help improve your mood.

Soothe Your Skin

If you have undesirable skin conditions such as acne, psoriasis, or eczema, you may find that indoor tanning helps these conditions, as they have all been known to respond positively to UV exposure. This is likely because UV rays help curb excessive oil production, soothing skin that is dry and irritated. Additionally, tanning has been found to help reduce the appearance of other skin imperfections, such as scarring and stretch marks, as these conditions are likely to be less visible when your skin tone is darker.

Increase Your Vitamin D Levels

As we mentioned earlier, UV rays are known to aid in the production of vitamin D, a vitamin that is essential to your body for many reasons. Low levels of this important vitamin have been associated with heart disease and heart attacks. Other conditions, such as osteoporosis and premature aging, have also been linked to vitamin D deficiency. We aren’t going to go so far as claiming that indoor tanning can help you prevent these health conditions, but getting adequate amounts of UV light may be beneficial for maintaining healthy levels of this vital vitamin.

Stimulate Your Thyroid

As we age, our metabolism gradually slows down more and more. This is why it can be more difficult to lose weight as you get older. Sometimes, all your body needs is a little UV exposure to give your thyroid the little push it needs to be more active. UV light has been known to motivate the thyroid, and for some people, that can translate to a more efficient metabolism. With a proper diet and moderate exercise, an efficient metabolism is often the key to weight loss, and indoor tanning may help with the process.
