It feels like winter has arrived, with shorter days, colder weather, and less sunshine. You may be feeling the effects of this on your mood, skin, and overall health.

Sunbeds are not only a great way to get a beautiful tan, but they also have many benefits for your well-being. Here are some reasons you should use a sunbed this winter.

Boost Your Mood

Sunlight positively impacts your mood, as it stimulates the production of serotonin, a hormone that makes you feel happy and relaxed. Sunbeds can mimic the natural mood-boosting qualities of the sun.

Strengthen Your Bones

Sunlight is also essential for your bone health, as it helps your body produce vitamin D, a nutrient that helps your body absorb calcium and phosphorus, which are needed for strong bones. Sunbeds can help you maintain your vitamin D levels over winter when there is less natural UV light.

Treat Your Skin

Sunlight can also help improve some skin conditions by reducing inflammation and promoting healing. Sunbeds can offer a similar benefit, as they expose your skin to UV radiation, which can help control the symptoms of these conditions.


Sunlight can also help you relax, lower your blood pressure, and improve your heart health. Sunbeds can provide a similar effect, creating a calming environment. iSunn’s state-of-the-art sunbeds feature air conditioning, voice guidance and an inbuilt music system, making it easy for you to enjoy some much-needed ‘me time’, unwinding away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life.

How to Use a Sunbed Safely

At iSunn Tanning Salon in Portishead, we promote safe tanning.

iSunn Tanning Salon is a proud member of the Sunbed Association (TSA).

By using a TSA member facility, you can be confident of receiving all the advice, information and support you need to achieve your tan in a responsible and controlled environment with staff properly trained in the responsible use of sunbeds appropriate to your skin type.

iSunn Tanning Salon complies with all British and European consumer safety regulations which govern the maximum UV output of sunbeds. This is generally referred to as 0.3 and is approved by the EU.

A 0.3 tanning session delivers the same tanning effect as the mid-day Mediterranean summer sun but without the risk of burning.

You should always follow our safety tips when using a sunbed.
