Sun Bathing, Sun, Sun Lounge, Sun Tan

Sunlight isn’t limited to tans and good moods it is a vital part of our biological system and is an integral part of maintaining existence on earth. It is constantly delivering many UV rays to the earth, from light, to heat and of course UV (ultraviolet).

When the skin is exposed to UV-B rays this induces the creation of Vitamin D which we need to keep our bones, teeth and muscles in good health. Without the sun we are unable to produce this on our own. However, too much of a good thing can have its side effects, which is why it is crucial to limit your unprotected exposure to the sun as solar radiation can stimulate a number of types of skin cancer.
