  1. Yes! Not only does sunbathing feel good, but it also provides your body with essential vitamin D. Vitamin D helps your body absorb calcium, which is important for strong bones, teeth, and muscles. It also helps your immune system function properly and may protect against some chronic diseases like cancer and heart disease. Just be sure to sunscreen to protect your skin from sun damage.
