The sun
The four fundamental elements for our life and our prosperity are air, water, earth and sun. If one of these elements are missing, then is quite simply that we do not exist! There would be no life without the sun - but too much sun can be harmful. The "ultraviolet rays" - UVC, UVB and UVA - are emitted by the sun. UVC rays, the most harmful to the human body, are filtered from the highest ozone layer, but some UVB rays (which can cause burns and damage to the eye) and UVA reach the earth's surface. The intensity of these rays depends on the angle of incidence of the solar rays with the earth, the geographical location, season and time of day. The ultraviolet (UV) rays are invisible. Outside, we are exposed to various levels of UV and often we are not aware of the intensity of these rays. The tanning equipment simulating the rays of the sun and emit only UVA and UVB, also control their emission and balance the UV to minimize the risk of sunburn and at the same time optimize the tanning action. As everyone knows, you can not control the sun! The tanning equipment are constantly subject to inspections and technological innovation programs to keep pace with the results of research on the effects of UV.

How we get the tan
The natural color of our skin is determined by the pigment: melanin. The presence and the amount of melanin in an individual are due to hereditary factors. When our skin is exposed to UV, the deeper cells - called melanocytes - increase the production of melanin. The skin 'darkens' gradually while the pigment emerges to the surface, which results the tanning effect . UV also cause the thickening of the outermost layer of the skin: this is how the body protects itself from UV and prevents sunburn. Each of us reacts differently to UV rays - those with darker skin produce melanin more quickly. Some people have such a clear complexion that their skin contains very little melanin and, when exposed to UV rays, they can not produce another, and thus they don’t get the tan. If the tanning process is accelerated, there might be cases of sunburn. Our skin has a natural repair mechanism, but when this is stimulated too frequently, it can run out and even result in permanent damage of the skin itself.

What is your skin type: it will be easier to adapt your behavior and into the sun without risk.

Vitamin D is the vitamin of the sun
Vitamin D is very important for our health. Much of the European population is deficient in this important vitamin, especially during the winter months because the sunlight does not contain enough ultraviolet . Numerous medical studies show that vitamin D has beneficial effects on:

• The health of cells: including breast, colon and prostate cancer;

• Bone health: including osteoporosis, osteo malacia and hip fracture; 

• The health of organs including high blood pressure, hypertension and heart disease;

• Mental health: including Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD), premenstrual syndrome (PMS), depression and mood in general;

• Autoimmune diseases, including multiple sclerosis, type 1 diabetes and rheumatoid arthritis;

• The skin pathologies including psoriasis;

• Obesity and psysical exercise;

The light, the most natural and effective way to get vitamin D
The scientific community fully agrees to the affirmation that man usually receives 90% of vitamin D through the skin, which is due to sunlight with its UV. Only 10% of the vitamin D can be normally assimilated by food supply, that’s why the sunlight is crucial to increase the intake of vitamin D that we so desperately need. Nowadays, many of us work and live indoors, where the artificial light reigns ,and therefore we are not exposed to sunlight during the day like our ancestors who naturally received it outside.

This prevents us to maintain an optimal level of vitamin D, and even create a "supply of vitamin D" that can cover the entire duration of winter, when the sun is too weak. Due to our modern lifestyle, many of us also suffer during the spring and summer the consequences of vitamin D deficiency, not to mention the lack of stocks for the winter. That's why the greatest experts of vitamin D recommended moderate exposure to sunlight at least twice a week and consider of great importance as an element adjuvant the use of tanning equipment controlled and programmed. It also stimulates the production of endorphins that are linked to mood and give us a sense of general wellness.

Questions and answers

How many times a week do I use a tanning bed?
People with type 1, children and young people under 18 years, those who follow photosensitizing therapies and people with a history of severe skin disorders in their family should never use the tanning bed or expose themselves to sunlight skin. Sessions of moderate tanning 2-3 times a week is appropriate in all other cases, but you must let the skin stand for at least 24 hours between sessions and the other (at least 48 hours for Type 2 skins). The European Standard should not exceed the 60 annual sessions.

What a tanning session?
It is the time needed to reach the minimum dose for erythema (MED). That is the point that precedes the sunburnt, which must always be avoided. The time of a tanning treatment (bed, face or shower) depends on the type of equipment used, the type of skin of the person who is exposed and the conditions of the existing tanning. It's good to rely always on the advice of the aesthetic operator,the unique professional licensed in this important aesthetic service. Do not expose yourself to the sun never on the same day after a session of tanning bed.

Am I risking skin cancer by using a tanning bed?
Medical and scientific research indicates too much exposure to UV rays in general (natural or artificial can increase the risk of formation of skin melanomas, especially if excessive exposure occurs during childhood. The responsible use and under the strict control of the aesthetic operator of UV allows to reach the right degree of tanning and to receive vitamin D in a coherent manner, avoiding misbehavior such as undermining the benefits of the treatment itself.

What are the benefits of artificial tanning?
The UV devices offer the possibility to submit to cosmetic tanning treatments in a controlled manner and with modern technology for high security and also promote the formation of vitamin D. It is well to remember that when you get a tan in the sunlight, the body can be exposed to different levels of UV radiation, according to the time of day, geographical location, month, year and so on. With the tanning bed, you can develop a specific program of tanning according to the skin type; the latter, as well as the type of bed used, are elements which are taken into account to avoid excessive exposure and the possibility of burns.

Johan Moan, world-renowned expert in the field of research related to UV rays and vitamin D receives the award for research at the University of Oslo for his pioneering studies in the field of sun exposure.
Professor Johan Moan, one of the most known world experts in the field of research related to UV light and vitamin D. Prof. Moan is director of the research department in biophysics and photodynamic therapy and the University Hospital in Oslo. Professor Moan recommends the use of the sun especially in the winter to ensure regular production of vitamin D by the human body. In the winter months, the level of vitamin D decreases considerably, because the sunlight contains an insufficient amount of ultraviolet irradiation to stimulate the production of vitamin D in human skin. If in this season you attend a solarium, you can prevent this sharp decline and maintain a constant level of vitamin D.

The rays of the increase life expectancy!
This is demonstrated by an observational long-term study conducted in Sweden. Exposure to the rays of the sun and light skin are the main determinants for the production of vitamin D, but also risk factors for cutaneous melanoma. In a twenty-year study of 30,000 women, Swedish researchers have studied the influence of sunlight on all-cause mortality. The scientists found that all-cause mortality was inversely related to sun exposure habits. With women who avoided exposure to sunlight, the mortality rate was twice that found in women who spent most of their time in the sun.

The vitamin from the sunlight prevents the flu, the level of vitamin D is one of the determining factors for the onset and the course of influenza epidemics. A study reveals that the risk of an influenza epidemic can also be influenced by the levels of vitamin D. The winter is the season of greater spread of the influenza virus. This is also due to the fact that viruses multiply especially when humidity levels are around 50% and, in winter, heated rooms represent the most favorable conditions. The flu shots help protect against these viruses. However, Norwegian scientists have shown that it is much more important to maintain adequate levels of vitamin D in the blood. In one of their studies it has been shown that the rates of infection and mortality during influenza epidemics increase in parallel with a reduction in exposure to sunlight, with a consequent decrease in the levels of vitamin D. In winter, in fact, when the rays of the sun are too weak to synthesize vitamin D, these rates can even grow from 20 to 600 times. In this case, a moderate use of the solarium can constitute an excellent preventive measure. A study by Norwegian and Danish researchers together has shown that tanning beds stimulate the production of vitamin D through the skin exactly the same way as natural sunlight.

The sunlight can increase sexual performance?
Some Italian researchers found that men with erectile dysfunction often have a deficiency of vitamin D. According to the researchers demonstrated, even the sunshine vitamin plays an important role in erectile dysfunction. To examine the correlation between serum levels of vitamin D and erectile dysfunction, the team of researchers led by Dr. Alessandra Barassi University of Milan, conducted a study on 143 male subjects suffering from erectile dysfunction in stages different. They found that nearly half of the subjects had a deficiency of vitamin D and that it was more frequent in patients with severe erectile dysfunction. The researchers argue that insufficient levels of vitamin D may increase the production of superoxide ions that deplete the nitrogen oxide. The nitric oxide is critical for erection, because it does relax the blood vessels, thereby increasing blood flow.
