Indoor tanning isn’t just about the gorgeous camel-brown glow you get on your skin, it also has a range of other health benefits.

Reduces Visibility of Scars & Stretch Marks

While tanning doesn’t completely erase the scars left behind by illnesses and stretch marks, it does make them much less visible. Scars tend to stand out and be more prominent on certain skin tones. Having the pigmentation of the skin darkened through tanning diminishes the appearance of the scars, making them less visible.

This especially works for thinner scars on the body. Apart from that, tanning also helps manage the side effects of jaundice which causes the skin to appear yellowish. This effect is countered through indoor tanning by gradually darkening the skin tone.

Fortifies the Skin

In addition to being the largest organ of the human body, the skin also acts as an external layer of protection. Unhealthy skin can leave the body susceptible to infections and ailments caused by contaminated environmental conditions.

In an indoor tanning session, you receive controlled dosages of UV rays which trigger the production of excessive oils, hormones, and Vitamin-D. This keeps the skin healthy and smooth, and keeps conditions such as acne, psoriasis, and eczema from progressing.


Helps with Weight Loss

Exposure to UV-rays impacts the body’s metabolism, increasing it considerably. The thyroid gland becomes a lot more active causing the metabolic rate to rise, and ultimately aiding weight loss.

For individuals who find it hard to lose weight due to their body’s slow metabolism, indoor tanning can have a dual effect. In addition to getting a healthy and glowing skin, they are also provided with an opportunity to be able to lose weight quicker and in an easier way.

Improves Mood

Ever notice how some individuals just seem to be gloomy during the winter? A severe lack of UV rays can often lead to a Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD), which impacts one’s mood and motivation.

Deprivation of UV rays also reduces production of Vitamin-D in the body. This can cause individuals to feel lethargic and depressed for long stretches. To a certain extent, indoor tanning sessions can help with this as they stimulate the production of Vitamin-D.

Stimulates the Production of Vitamin-D

If your body is deprived of Vitamin-D, this can lead to serious health issues. You are at a higher risk of heart disease, osteoporosis and even various types of cancers affecting the lungs, ovaries, and kidneys. Indoor tanning sessions maintain the required dosage of Vitamin-D needed by your body by stimulating its production.
