Positive Effects of Tanning Tanning makes your skin have a healthy glow, as everyone knows. There are numerous other positive effects tanning can have on your body though. Tanning can conceal blemishes, prevent sunburn, and manage pre-‐menstrual syndrome (PMS). When dealing with acne, it seems like there is no great so lution. Cover-‐sticks, creams, and other makeup solutions clog your pores and aggravate your skin even more, making the situation worse. This acne can be present on your face, back, neck, or shoulders. The healthy glow you get from indoor tanning beds reduces the contrast between red spots and the rest of the affected area without causing additional problems. Of course, you don’t want to overdo the healthy glow. Balance when tanning is essential so you do not burn your skin. Five to ten minute sessions are the best way to start with sessions once or twice a week. The goal is always to blend your complexion, not to over-‐tan. Tanning is also not a complete cure for acne
because the benefits are superficial. Tanning only reduces the visibility of the acne. You should still listen to your dermatologist regarding UV exposure, tanning, and skin product usage to determine what is best for your acne. The dangers of UV rays occur from continuous over-‐exposure and burning. Burning is actually the worst cause of damage to the skin and you are more likely to get sunburn from tanning outside than from tanning indoors. This is due to the fact that indoor tanning allows you to control how much direct light you are exposed to. Tanning can help manage PMS due to its various effects. Tanning helps increase the production of serotonin in the body. This hormone is known for enhancing moods, but it also reduces carbohydrate cravings and controls appetite. Exposure to the UV rays in tanning helps reduce muscle aches and tension and the rays also stimulate thyroid function and metabolism. This helps combat exhaustion and weight gain.
