Besides being a mood booster, tanning has many benefits. First of all, tanning gives you a healthy glow, which automatically makes your skin look fresher and healthier. Indoor tanning also provides many of the same benefits that getting actual sunlight give you. There is strong evidence that sunlight/tanning aid in building the resistance strength of the immune system, as well as providing and helping us naturally produce vitamin D. It also increases the body’s ability to absorb calcium, and helps to combat depression, fatigue, and the general sense of malaise.
Additionally tanning can also increase the supply of oxygen to the blood, help to combat and treat acne, psoriasis, and eczema, and stimulate the thyroid gland. Stimulation of the thyroid boosts your metabolism and in men, helps to stimulate the male sex drive.

It is important to know as much as possible about tanning before you begin so that you can do it in the safest way possible and still receive all the benefits. First, protective eyewear must be worn at all times while the tanning bed is on and your eyelids do not provide protection against ultraviolet rays. It is recommended to buy your own eyewear so as to prevent the spread of any transmitted infection. It is also recommended to purchase and use the specially formulated indoor tanning lotions. They provide moisture to your skin during and after tanning and can help speed up the tanning process. Finally, remember to allow your skin to work up to the desired tan level. Start with just a few minutes in the bed and gradually increase your exposure times 1-2 minutes per session.
