The sun is good for your health. Now that the spring is finally here on our doorstep we can start to climb out from hibernation and enjoy the sunshine which graces us. Sunshine is a powerful thing which can help us to produce vitamin D for our bodies, it helps us feel happier and is just fun to be around.
Whether you decide to travel across the world and stay in a fancy hotel like AC Hotel Queretaro Antea In Mexico, or simply sit in your local beer garden with a pint of cider: make sure you take the time to get out in the sun this spring, and here are the reasons why.
It’s great for your hair
As we have mentioned above, exposure to the sun helps our body to produce more vitamin D. Vitamin D is a substance which is integral in keeping out bones, our nails and our hair strong and healthy. Therefore, more sun equals stronger hair. If you can spend an hour in the sunshine every day for a month you will see a huge difference in the strength and overall health of your locks.
It’s great for your mood
Do you ever feel sad in the winter? This is not just a case of you being grumpy: it is a real medical condition known as seasonal affective disorder. SAD for short, is a mental condition which says that in the winter we are sad because we cannot spend time out in the sun. This is the perfect excuse to get out this weekend and go for a walk in the sunshine, because it is good for your brain! If you are having a stressful week, take the time to spend an hour relaxing in the sun. It will greatly improve your mood, relax you and get you ready to tackle the rest of the day.
It makes your teeth stronger
The sunshine is an incredible thing. It is the lifeblood of all living things and serves as the first link in the food chain. It has many amazing properties for all species, but for us it can help with strengthening out teeth, vitamin D is just as important as calcium when it comes to tooth strength, therefore it is important for us to take in enough every day to keep our teeth healthy. Although you can eat supplements to up your vitamin D intake, it is much more fun to sit out in the sun for a while!
It clears your skin
When we sit out in the sun for a long period of time with no protection this can cause out skin to mutate and skin cancer can eventually be born. However, if you always wear your sunscreen when you are outside, the sun can do more good than harm to your skin. When we are hot our pores open up and we sweat to cool ourselves down. The act of sweating is amazing for flushing out those clogged pores and therefore leaves out skin feeling much clearer.
