Did You Know: Sun Is Good For You!

7 Jun

You may have heard or read reports of people (particularly tanning salons) claiming that tanning is actually good for you. And guess what? It is true! HOWEVER, and that’s a big however, only in moderation. UV Rays do give you vitamin D, which is of course good for you, but you don’t need that much, and getting some vitamin D from Mr. Sun isn’t so important that you shouldn’t protect your skin. It is recommended that you apply your SPF, lotions, etc. about 10-15 minutes after being out in the sun. This gives your body time to absorb the good things the sun provides before burning and other damage sets in. Just make sure you remember to apply your protectant after that. Use your head, though. If it’s a particularly sunny day, it’s not worth the risk. You can always get vitamin D elsewhere! A lot of the time you can check the news or weather in your area to see if the sun is particularly brighter and stronger than usual. 🙂
