The benefits of sunbathing


Summer arrives and the first though we have is the beach and spending a few days in the Balearic Islands to achieve that tan we like so much. Nevertheless, sunbathing with caution and protection has multiple benefits for our health, as you will see in this article.

Healthy and Tan

During the summer months, we rest more and that improves and strengthen our immune system. This is not only because of your vacations, but it has to do a lot with the Sun too.

The sun emits UV rays, which in turn increase the production of a neurotransmitter, serotonin, which is responsible for increasing our sense of well-being.

In addition, these months, the heat influences positively in our hearts, and not only because we have drawn a smile almost 24 hours a day, but because the heat lowers our blood pressure.

If we have to highlight one of the main benefits of sunbathing, it would have to be the amount of vitamin D we get when we expose ourselves to the sun. This vitamin helps to reduce cholesterol; on the other hand, during the summer we eat more fruit and perform many physical activities. This again helps to improve the health of our heart.

Sun with caution

Although the sun provides us with many benefits for our health, we must not forget that we need to take care and protect our skin. From Insotel Hotel Group, we want to give you a few recommendations:

  • Avoid exposing yourself to the sun during 12 and 16 o’clock, as this is where UV rays are more aggressive.
  • Always use sun protection. Especially for the face, nec, head, neckline and ears as they are the most vulnerable areas of the body.
  • Always apply sunscreen 30 minutes before exposing to the sun.

These are some benefits you can obtain when sunbathing with caution. Now you only need to book your room in one of our hotels, what are you waiting for?
