Does tanning in a tanning bed help depression?

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.

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).
