"You lie back blissfully into your sun lounger and feel the warmth of the sun on your skin as you dig your toes into the sand. A wave washes up and tickles your feet. A bird soars high up in the sky. You take a long sip of your ice-cold drink. Relaxation engulfs you and in this moment life is absolutely perfect…"
We all know the gorgeous feeling of basking in the sun! And did you know that sunlight is actually incredibly good for you? Sunlight, in moderation, does wonders for your health, and regular exposure is not only recommended, but is essential for happiness, health, and even for fighting illnesses such as cancer and skin disorders. Best of all, you don’t have to do anything to gain these benefits but lie back, relax, and soak up some rays! Want to know more? Read on...
High cholesterol in the blood can be converted into steroid and sex hormones after sun exposure, not only leading to weight loss but also an increase in fertility! It also increases oxygen in the blood, which mimics the effects of exercise. Working out while you’re lying down- can you think of anything better?
Although skin cancer has been associated with sunlight, it is actually over-exposure that is the cause of it. It is important to note that moderate exposure to sunlight, without burning, has not been associated with skin cancer. In fact, a lack of exposure can result in other types of cancer. Sunlight has been found to fight colon, kidney, and even breast cancer!
Sunlight kills bad bacteria on our skin and has disinfecting and healing effects on open wounds.
It has also been found to decrease pain after surgery, which means patients don’t need to take as many painkillers due to its beneficial effects.
People with acne, eczema, psoriasis, and fungal infections all benefit from sun exposure, which helps to treat all these disorders.
While you’re in the sun, you will also get the benefit of tanning, which gives a healthy-looking glow, hides skin imperfections, and gives a slimmer appearance. We recommend using Carrot Sun tan accelerators whilst tanning, as they have been made with safety in mind. These products speed up the tanning process so that you are able to tan with only moderate sun exposure! Don't forget to use it over your preferred SPF lotion. Check out Carrot Sun products out here.
So grab your beach towel (and your Carrot Sun!) and get sunbathing!
