Vitamin D Benefits – “Sunshine Vitamin”

Vitamin D Benefits – The Sunshine Vitamin

Hey There, Sunshine Seekers! 😎🌞 Guess what? There are some incredible vitamin D benefits! There’s a reason why vitamin D is called the “sunshine vitamin” – it’s your ticket to a world of awesomeness! First up, let’s talk bones. Vitamin D is like the 🦸‍♀️superhero sidekick🦸‍♂️ to calcium and phosphorus, making sure your bones stay strong and dance-ready. 💃🕺

But wait, there’s more! Your immune system gets a high-five✋ from vitamin D too. It’s like giving your body an immune-boosting hug, helping you fend off those pesky bugs and feel your best.🤩  And get this, vitamin D isn’t just about bones and bugs; it’s like a backstage VIP pass to the health show. It’s been known to team up with you against heart disease, diabetes, and even certain types of ninja-like cancers.

Hold onto your sunhats, because vitamin D also moonlights as a mood magician. It’s like a sunshine hug for your brain, helping those feel-good chemicals groove and keeping your spirits high. 😁 Ever hear of the winter blues? Ever want to head out to sunnier climates with the sun, sand & sea in the dead of winter??? Sunshine is an instant mood booster!

So, how do you get this sunny goodness? Well, start to embrace some 🌞sunshine🌞 and soak up some rays, all while savoring vitamin D-rich foods like yummy fish🐟, fortified goodies🥛, and sunny-side-up eggs🍳. And if you’re a bit low on Vitamin D, don’t fret! Your trusty healthcare squad can also hook you up with supplements💊 to keep the sunshine vibes flowing.

Humans make 90 percent of their vitamin D naturally through sun exposure to the skin (without sunscreen). For those of us who live in our northern climates means UVB levels in sunlight are too weak 4-6 months of the year to make any vitamin D naturally. read more

History of Memorial Day & Why We Celebrate It

Memorial Day is a federal holiday in the United States that honors and remembers the military personnel who died while serving in the country’s armed forces. The holiday is observed on the last Monday in May each year.

The origins of Memorial Day can be traced back to the aftermath of the American Civil War. In 1868, General John A. Logan, the commander-in-chief of the Grand Army of the Republic, a Union veterans’ organization, declared May 30th as Decoration Day, a time for the nation to decorate the graves of the war dead with flowers. The first national observance of Decoration Day was held at Arlington National Cemetery, where both Union and Confederate soldiers were buried.

Over time, Decoration Day became known as Memorial Day, and its focus expanded beyond honoring Civil War veterans to include all American military personnel who had died in service. In 1971, Congress declared Memorial Day a national holiday and established its observance on the last Monday in May, in order to create a long weekend for federal employees.

Today, Memorial Day is observed with solemn ceremonies, parades, and the decoration of graves with flowers and flags. It is a time for Americans to reflect on the sacrifices made by those who died in service to their country and to honor their memory.

Red light therapy is a non-invasive treatment that uses red light wavelengths to promote healing and rejuvenation in the skin. This treatment can help to improve the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and uneven skin tone.

Prom Specials 2023

Hey there, fellow prom-goers! With prom season around the corner, we all want to look our best. One way to achieve that is through tanning or spray tanning. Let’s chat on the benefits of tanning and sunless tanning for Prom!

First and foremost, a good tan can make you feel more confident and boost your self-esteem. It can help you look and feel healthier, giving you a radiant glow that will turn heads at Prom. In addition, tanning can help alleviate symptoms of certain skin conditions such as psoriasis, eczema, and acne.

Moreover, exposure to sunlight can also boost vitamin D production in the body. Vitamin D is essential for strong bones and teeth, and it also helps regulate the immune system. A healthy dose of vitamin D from sunlight can benefit your overall health and well-being.

If you’re looking for a quick, easy, and instant way to achieve that perfect glow for prom night, spray tanning is a great option. Spray tanning can give you that same radiant glow in as little as ONE session! We recommend doing a trial session 1-2 weeks before Prom and using your final session 1-2 days ahead of time. Just make sure you always prep your skin before a spray tan by showering, shaving & exfoliating and arrive to the salon free of any lotions, oils or deodorants.

So, whether you choose to tan or spray tan for prom, remember that feeling confident and beautiful is what your end result will be. So go ahead, rock that golden glow and enjoy your special prom night!

Walk-ins ALWAYS welcome – no appointment needed.

That golden glow can elevate your prom look to new heights! Luckily, you don’t have to sit out in the sun for hours to achieve that bronzed, sun-kissed look.

Sunless spray tanning is the way to go! In this blog post, we’ll dive into the facts about why teens should opt for a sunless spray tan for prom. Not only will you look amazing, but you’ll get a huge confidence boost & FEEL amazing too! So let’s get ready to glow!

1. Natural Ingredients

Sunless spray tans are a quick option if you can’t sunbathe or use tanning beds. Sunless spray tans are an easy and effective way to achieve that dreamy glow in as little as one session. Spray Tan Booths use a natural ingredient (FDA approved) called dihydroxyacetone (DHA) that interacts with the outer layer of your skin to produce a gorgeous, natural-looking tan.

2. Instant Results
Building a base tan using traditional tanning methods can take 1-3 weeks of consistent sun exposure to produce a noticeable tan. With sunless spray tans, you don’t have to wait that long! Our spray tan will give you an instant bronzed look in minutes, and your tan will fully develop within 24 hours. This rapid transformation means you can get your tan the day or two before prom and be good to go for the big event.

3. Customizable Color
Worried about turning too orange or ending up with a tan that doesn’t suit your skin tone? Fear not! Our sunless spray tan can be customized to your desired shade, ensuring that your final tan looks natural and flattering on you. Our professional spray tan consultants will assess your skin tone and discuss your personal preferences to find the perfect shade, to get a gorgeous, personalized result for prom night.

4. Even, Streak-Free Finish
One of the most significant advantages of sunless spray tans is how evenly they cover your skin. Using strategic positions, 3 Spray Nozzles and heated air dry passes, you’ll have a smooth, streak-free finish that complements your stunning prom attire. There’s no need to worry about uneven tan lines, patchy spots or streaks that sometimes come with off brand self-tanners.

5. It’s NOT Just for Girls
Guys, we didn’t forget about you! No matter your gender, achieving a sunless spray tan can give you the confidence-boosting glow that you want for prom night. It’s not just for gals in fancy dresses – guys can benefit from the natural-looking, sun-kissed tan and enjoy the prom with a polished and well-groomed appearance.

Choosing a sunless spray tan for your prom is a smart, easy, and fabulous way to complete your look for the big night.

Collagen Red Light Therapy at SunWerks

Collagen building red light therapy is quickly becoming one of the most popular treatments available to people of all ages. This easy and non-invasive treatment has a range of benefits that make it appealing to many. By stimulating the production of collagen, it can help improve the appearance of skin and reduce wrinkles and fine lines. It can also help reduce inflammation, improve wound healing, and strengthen hair and nails.

Collagen is a protein found in the body that plays an important role in the appearance of our skin. It helps to keep it looking youthful and allows it to remain elastic and firm. As we age, our natural collagen production slows down and our skin begins to lose its elasticity, leading to wrinkles and sagging. Red light therapy helps to stimulate new collagen production in the skin, giving it a more youthful and vibrant appearance.

The light used in our red light therapy booth is a low level, non-thermal light that penetrates deep into the skin. It helps to stimulate the production of collagen and elastin, which makes it the perfect service to add to your daily anti-aging regimen. Red light can also help to reduce the appearance of scars, discoloration, and stretch marks.

The best part about red light therapy is that it’s quick, easy, and requires no downtime. You can get the full benefits of red light in just a few minutes a day. So come on in and see for yourself what red light therapy can do for you!
