Looking Great Should Also Involve Feeling Great

The link between mind and body

It’s often said that a healthy body implies a healthy mind. This can be a bit of an exaggeration. Obviously there’s things which will affect one which occur in isolation from the other. But for the most part there’s a far more solid link between the two than people realize. In general that’s why it’s so important to focus on the health of the entire person rather than just a single part of it. Working with any aspect of a person in total isolation from everything else tends to have unfortunate consequences. A good example of this can be found from the traditional approach to tanning.

A healthier approach to tanning

It’s a practice that most certainly provides an initial boost to someone’s appearance. A nice tan will almost instantly build upon someone’s natural looks and push them into the next tier of beauty. But that tends to only be a temporary thing. Traditional tanning involves laying in the sun for an unhealthy amount of time. This takes a toll on the body. One’s skin will start to become leathery from the sun damage. And eventually this can turn into skin cancer. But it’s really the mood that suffers the most. It’s not good for someone, and people are aware of what they’re doing to themselves. The damage to skin also creates offputting frowns and worry lines.

But it doesn’t have to be that way. A tan is just the end result of skin cells releasing melanin in response to sun exposure. It normally does this at a slow rate as one’s skin is damaged by the sun. But a new technique uses melanotan to release melanin almost instantly on exposure to the sun. People simply use melanotan and then expose their skin to the sun for a few minutes. It’s a level of sun exposure that one should be getting anyway to stay healthy. And it avoids all of the negative effects of traditional tanning methods. People will instead simply have a healthy tanned glow to the skin and a healthy and happy feeling in their mind.
