As winter looms my family and I always try and get away to the sun during the October school break. Not only is it more cost effective than travelling during the summer months but it is also a time when the heat of the sun’s rays is not as hot and fierce. This is important to me as I want the benefits of the sun and the Vitamin D it provides but not the negative effects such as burning, especially for my kids who are a lot paler than me.
Another reason why we like to go away during October is because its quieter. Airports are less busy, the resorts are quieter and for us that means less stress, no fighting over sunbeds and less queues at the ice cream stand! But the most important reason as to why we like it to be quieter is because there is more peace and quiet allowing more time for some much-needed R & R time before the Christmas busy period!
As winter draws in and the nights gets darker, and daylight reduces you notice that your skin looks bleaker and less healthy, I really notice this in my children. It is because during the winter months there is obviously less sunshine which naturally provides the required amount of Vitamin D.
Vitamin D helps regulate the amount of calcium and phosphate in the body. These nutrients are needed to keep bones, teeth, and muscles healthy. A lack of vitamin D can lead to bone deformities such as rickets in children, and bone pain caused by a condition called osteomalacia in adults. Government advice is that everyone should consider taking a daily vitamin D supplement during the autumn and winter – so what better excuse do you need go away on holiday then to get your Vitamin D requirement!
If like me you love holidaying in the Sun and enjoy all the benefits it provides but worry about the harm the sun can do then remember all of SWIMSARA’s swimwear range is made from a revolutionary, patented fabric. It’s tan through technology allows the UV-A rays through but stops the UV-B rays from penetrating, meaning you get all the benefits of the sun, including Vit D and but without the burning.
