Get your Vitamin D at Tropical Tan

As summer approaches, many people are looking for ways to achieve that perfect tan. While tanning can make us feel more confident and attractive, it’s important to remember the health benefits of vitamin D.

In this blog, we’ll explore the benefits of vitamin D and how it relates to tanning. Vitamin D is a vital nutrient that helps our bodies absorb calcium, which is essential for strong bones. It also plays an important role in supporting our immune system, regulating mood, and reducing inflammation.

Unfortunately, many people don’t get enough vitamin D from their diet or sunlight exposure. One of the best ways to get vitamin D is through sunlight exposure. When our skin is exposed to the sun, it produces vitamin D. However, it’s important to be safe in the sun and avoid getting a sunburn. Too much sun exposure can increase the risk of skin cancer and premature aging. This is where tanning comes in. Tanning can be a safe and effective way to get vitamin D. Tanning beds are designed to mimic the sun’s natural rays, which can help your body produce vitamin D. Tanning beds also allow you to control your exposure to UV rays, which can reduce the risk of sunburn and skin damage.

In addition to the benefits of vitamin D, tanning can also improve your mood and mental health. Sunlight exposure has been shown to increase serotonin levels in the brain, which can boost your mood and reduce symptoms of depression.

At Tropical Tan, we offer a variety of tanning options to help you get the perfect tan while also getting the benefits of vitamin D. Our Smart Tan certified staff can help you determine the best tanning plan for your skin type and needs.

Repeal the Tan Tax

During this COVID-19 pandemic when there is more talk of relief packages coming through Congress, help us out by joining our friends at the American Suntanning Association by writing to our elected officials to repeal the Tan Tax.

COVID has undoubtedly affected small businesses, and this repeal (along with any additional relief bills) would be a relief in and of itself.

Please consider writing our elected officials by contacting so that they can help you submit letters with ease.


Get Your Vitamin D!

November 2 marked World Vitamin D Day. Dr. Michael F. Holick helpfully notes “Vitamin D made in the skin lasts at least twice as long in the blood as vitamin D ingested from the diet. When you are exposed to sunlight, you make not only vitamin D but also at least five and up to ten additional photoproducts that you would never get from dietary sources or from a supplement.”

We are Smart Tan certified, and during your time with us we control the UV light to where it is practically the same as sunlight. Our light trigger your body to make vitamin D – come get your “Sunshine Vitamin” with us today!
