The health benefits that artificial sunlight has on our bodies applies to people of all ages.
Vitamin D is an essential part of our bodies natural processes – it allows our bodies to process calcium, to make, and keep, our bones strong.
Vitamin D is created when our skin is exposed to UV-B rays. When exposed, the cholesterol in the skin is transformed into provitamin D and within 12 hours, your body heat turns this into vitamin D.
However, from October to March, the sunlight in the UK contains hardly any UV-B at all. Most of it gets lost in the atmosphere. As a result, the body’s own vitamin D production comes to a complete standstill.
This is where modern sunbeds lend a helping hand with their UV-B light component.
Although, when applied correctly, the dosage is so low that it prevents you from getting sunburned, it is high enough to re-trigger the body’s own vitamin D production.
This way, you can do something for your tan – and strengthen your bones at the same time.
We also believe we are the only salon left in Hemel Hempstead with lay down sunbeds, and we’ve got two of em!
