Sunshine is Golden: Health Benefits of Sun Domes & Winter Sunbathing

Sunbathing in our Sun Dome boosts your body’s immune system.” — Pacific Domes

Exploring why sunshine in a Sun Dome is golden

When was the last time you ventured outdoors to enjoy a revitalizing sunbathing session when it was cold outside? What if you could enjoy sunbathing as a way to get your daily dose of sunshine all year long under a Sun Dome’s natural sunlight?

Modern research supports that there’s no better place to tan than under natural sunlight. While we’d all love to escape to a tropical beach, that’s no always within our reach. So are there any alternatives? Yes, sunbathing in the privacy of a Sun Dome has proven to be an excellent way to, not only tan – but to reap the sun’s beneficial rays, even during winter months.

Here’s just a couple of sound reasons why Sun Dome sunbathing and tanning might be right for you:

  1. Sunbathing helps your body reap the sun’s beneficial rays by producing Vitamin D naturally
  2. Sunbathing is a great way to boost your immune system and stay ahead of the winter flu season

While just knowing about these great health benefits might motivate folks to explore investing in a Sun Dome, recent studies by Homeland Security and the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) takes this conversation to a whole new level. Lab results determined that UV light, not only provides protection against diseases, it also, kills coronavirus ‒ yes, natural sunlight destroys Covid-19!

Our most striking observation to date is the powerful effect that solar light appears to have on killing the virus, both, on surfaces and in the air.” — William Bryan, Dept. of Homeland Security

Offering hope that sunlight may ease the spread of the pandemic, William Bryan, science and technology advisor to the U.S. Department of Homeland Security secretary, told reporters at the White House that government scientists had discovered ultraviolet rays had a potent impact on the pathogen (4-24-20).  

Addditional benefits derived by spending time sunbathing

In this technological age, it’s estimated that Vitamin D deficiency has reached a worldwide crunch due to people spending more time indoors than outdoors. Scientists suggest that the health benefits of moderate sun exposure outweigh the risks. Exposure to sunlight is responsible for:

  • Vitamin D production and boosting the immune system
  • Fighting illness and skin disorders
  • Lowered blood pressure
  • Improved brain function and lowered risk of Alzheimer’s
  • Strengthening bones ‒ improved growth and bone health in children and adults
  • Enhancing moods ‒ eases depression and improves sleep quality
  • Prenatal care ‒ protects against pre-term labor and infections associated with pregnancy

People with sensitive skin may already be aware that you shouldn’t sunbathe longer than your skin can create melanin – that’s the pigment responsible for tanning. It goes without saying that you should choose your sunbathing time wisely ‒ even in a Sun Dome.
