Supposedly, natural light helps mood disorders. I may be happier, in addition to hotter, if I tan in one.
Any personal experiences?
I did a lot of tanning last year. It definitely made me look hotter, slimmer, healthier.
OTOH, it did quite a number on my complexion. I moisturized like crazy, but I have may have aged myself prematurely.
It's a trade-off, OP.
I live in Seattle and one or two dark winters I tanned. It help my seasonal depression.
tanning beds are dangerous - don't use them
only if it's Tanning Chatum.
Or Channing Tatum.
Buy a light with the natural spectrum or whatever they call it. "Healthy" light. NEVER USE A TANNING BED. They make specific lights to battle SAD (seasonal affective disorder).
