Just like they say a glass of red wine a day is good for you, sunlight in moderation can be good too… Here’s five ways you can benefit from staying safe in the sun.

Happier Mood

In the cold dark days of winter, we can start to feel lethargic.  Once the sun starts shining, we feel more energetic, and our mood improves due to the sun’s ability to help our bodies produce endorphins and the feel-good neurotransmitter, serotonin

Boosts Your Immune System

Getting your daily dose of sunshine will enhance your immune system. It increases the number of white blood cells in your blood. It also helps them be better fighters as they destroy infection.

Drop A Dress Size

Higher levels of serotonin in our bodies mean that not only do you feel happier but it also suppresses the appetite, so you’ll eat less in warmer weather.

Improves Skin Conditions

Sun exposure can help to heal skin conditions such as psoriasis, acne and eczema. Regular controlled sun exposure is often prescribed for sufferers. But remember wear SPF, the higher the better.

Gives you more energy

O.K… Maybe not this much energy but melatonin also regulates sleep, so having lower levels of this hormone in your body gives you more get up and go. This is why you need less sleep in summer but still feel livelier.
