*YOU ARE MY SUNSHINE*

     Yay for spring! Spring is technically here, but there is still snow on the ground and temperatures under 5 degrees. All that I care about is whether or not the sun is shinning and boy is it ever shinning! :D  Everything brightens up with sunshine! The world becomes more colourful and the sun rays seems to reflect off faces transforming frowns into smiles, if only for the simple reason that the sun is shinning! :) 
      Yes, the sun is beautiful and it is healthy to get a certain amount of sun exposure so that our bodies can naturally produce vitamin D. When the UVB rays from the sun hits our skin our body can get to work and make us some essential vitamins. Vitamin D is important for the maintenance of good health and helps keep our muscles and bones strong and healthy. Not everyone needs the same amount of sun exposure to produce the amount of vitamin D that they need for their body. The right amount of sun exposure for you depends on factors such as UV levels, skin colour and lifestyle.  An important fact is that prolonged sun exposure does not mean more vitamin D but rather it means damaged skin and an increased chance of skin cancer. Therefore it is important to protect yourself from getting too much sun either by staying out of it or covering up with clothes or sunscreen.
 Stay protected! --- "Light, hydrating formula with SPF 30 blocks out the sun's UVA (ultra violent aging) and UVB (ultra violet burning) rays, infused with nutrients such as Argan Oil, Rosehip Oil, Green Tea and herbal extracts to soften and nourish the skin. In addition to protecting against the sun's UV rays, antioxidants provide protection against environmental damage, skin cancer, fine lines, wrinkles and dark sun / age spots."
After much research I would have to say that this is the 'healthiest' tanning lotion on the market. This tanning lotion uses 100% natural ingredients and is certified organic. I would say no tanning lotion is obviously healthier than using tanning lotion but if you really want a summer glow and do not want to harm yourself with tanning beds, over sun exposure, or tanning creams full of chemicals then True Natural is the way to go :)
