There is no accurate statistics of attendance of tanning salons. But it is in America. It is estimated that in the United States they regularly swim nearly 30 million people, of which 2.3 million are teens. Supporters of tanning salons around the world vote for dark skin is beautiful and uplifting. Opponents of same stubbornly reiterate that soak up the artificial Sun is harmful and dangerous. Who is right?
THE ARGUMENTS FOR
PROMOTES VITAMIN D SYNTHESIS
This vitamin is essential for maintaining immunity, and also affects the nervous system, heart function and blood coagulation. It is synthesized by ultraviolet rays. Recent research confirms that vitamin D deficiency, particularly in women, leads to premature aging: wrinkles appear early, dull complexion, occurs before menopause. Sessions in the cockpits of the artificial Sun 2 times a week for 5-7 minutes will help bridge the vitamin deficiency.
STRUGGLES WITH DEPRESSION
According to who data, lack of sunlight, especially in autumn and winter, leads to depression. To avoid this, consider how you can spend more time in the Sun. Under the influence of ultraviolet rays produced endorphins – hormones of pleasure “. All this is especially true for the residents of northern regions, where there is a shortage of light in winter. In Scandinavia, Siberia and Arctic doctors often prescribe solarium and light therapy for the prevention and treatment of depression.
PREPARES THE SKIN FOR TANNING ON THE BEACH
Because in the solarium we get strictly dosed UV rays, the body adapts to it gradually and without stress. During several sessions of the skin becomes a golden hue, and when we finally go to relax, have much less risk of burns in the southern sunshine. Of course, this does not replace the need to use Sun-protection cosmetics on the beach and sunbathing just before 11 a.m. and after 5 p.m.
USEFUL WITH SOME SKIN DISEASES
For example, uses a limited exposure to ultraviolet light is very useful: often the skin visibly cleared after just a few sessions. However, in this case the dermatologist recommends above all not normal solarium and PUVA therapy course-combined treatment using medicines and long-wavelength ultraviolet radiation (UVA). But when PUVA therapy is complete, useful and solarium: you can walk after the treatment to make the invisible traces of psoriasis.
RESPONSIBLE FOR PHOTO-AGING
Today it is absolutely proven that tanning is a kind of addiction, like cigarettes and alcohol. This phenomenon is called tanoreksiej. Characteristic signs: not once on the regular session, one begins to get nervous, angry, rapidly deteriorating mood. Are especially prone to this disorder of adolescents and young people up to 30 years. Experts are unanimous: from tanoreksii to be treated, both psychotherapy and medicamental agents.
“The range of the rays in the solarium is different from the natural sunlight,” says PhD Katja Warnke, NIVEA Sun, head of the Laboratory in Hamburg. – To quickly achieve the effect of tanning, ultraviolet rays used in solariums type a (UVA) in high doses. They penetrate into the deeper layers of the skin than radiation type (UVB), and negatively affect the elastin and collagen, the main structural protein of the skin that are responsible for the skin’s youth. ” As a result of the premature aging process starts, increasing the risk of wrinkles and the formation of free radicals and increases the risk of allergic reactions.
After years of research, experts have concluded that the use of UV lamps increases the risk of melanoma. According to the latest scientific data, especially risk 75% of young people aged under 30 years, regularly visit the solarium. In addition, scientists at the University of Albany found that frequent visits to tanning beds can lead to violations of various systems of the body.
If you take hormonal drugs, such as contraceptives, as well as certain antibiotics and diuretics, with solarium it is necessary to be especially careful. UVA-irradiation can very quickly lead to spots on the skin. The same applies to pregnant women: because of hormonal adjustment in high probability of Chloasma – so-called pigmentation during pregnancy.
CAUSES OF ACNE
Contrary to popular belief, the solarium is contraindicated for inflammation and rashes on the skin. At first it may seem that the improvement comes from it: under the influence of ultraviolet rays skin local immunity is suppressed, which reduces inflammation, sal′nost′ disappear. But this is only a temporary effect: in a few sessions there comes a counter-response, acne shows up with a bang and worse than is treatable. Solarium shows only after a course of therapy to make acne less noticeable scars and scarring from acne.
THAT’S THE BOTTOM LINE?
The downsides of the solarium have still more than pluses. But who cares, if you face a long winter of Tan or want to get plenty of sunshine, albeit artificial. It’s like with high heels: everyone knows that they are harmful, but no one is going to leave with them. The reasonable thing would be to minimize the risk.
First, observe the optimal schedule visit the solarium: 1 time per week for 5-7 minutes.
Secondly, be sure to use the strap on your nipples, birthmarks, fresh plaster band scars or lesions (including tattoos and piercings), as well as the areas of skin with pigmentation or vascular mesh.
Thirdly, sunbathing in goggles, a kerchief, and close hair lips protect moisturizing balm.
Categorically cannot be sunbathing in the solarium, mastopathy, miome, polyps, cysts, violations of the thyroid gland and numerous rodinkah on the body.
