As spring begins to blossom, albeit prematurely, we start to take advantage of the sunny spells improving both our mental and physical well-being.
When the sun is higher in the sky, there is more sunshine and therefore an even bigger boost of Vitamin D… so the faster we approach the summer the better. The sudden increase of natural light enhances. After dropping levels of Vitamin D from autumn throughout winter, Vitamin D has so many health boosting benefits.
Endorphins and ‘happy’ hormones begin to trigger as a result of the excitement and feelings of hopefulness that spring delivers. The pain-relieving chemicals bring a sentiment of contentment, therefore you’re more likely to want to have a fresh outlook. Spring cleans and organisation increases to make room for the motivated spirits that the weather brings.
An effective excuse to get out and about is to begin exercising outdoors. No matter your fitness level, anybody can enjoy the sun. From swapping the gym to the fields or parks to swapping the sofa for an afternoon stroll, Vitamin D will boost your energy. Exercise also increases endorphins and so creating a perfect pair.
However, remember to include within your skin routine a reliable SPF sunscreen moisturiser or foundation. Whether you’re lucky enough to be jetting off on your holidays or lounging around the garden, the sun can be damaging to skin cells.
