Tanning Guide

Facts about tanning:

The four main elements we rely on for our lives and well-being are air, water, earth and sunlight.

Take any of these forces away and we quite simply could not exist.

Natural sunlight is the source of all life on earth. It provides energy, warmth and light and has done so for millions of years.

The sun also gives us a sense of well-being, a tan and a healthy feeling about ourselves, which is often associated with good looks, health and success.

Experts claim that sun and sunbeds enhance physical well-being, strengthen the immune system, can lift depression and increase the body's defences. It is also the only source of vitamin D, which improves the body's absorption of calcium, particularly into the bones and can help prevent Osteoporosis. 80% of Psoriasis sufferers show improvement with UV exposure and 70% of patients with SAD (Seasonal Affective Disorder) show improvement after light treatment.
