In a tropical country like the Philippines, it's no wonder we've taken the sun for granted. And for girls who desire a fairer complexion, they shy away from the light. We don't blame you because of the heat! But that doesn't mean that you have to block out the sunlight entirely. Here's a list why you need a bit of sunlight in your life.

  1. Kills bad bacteria.

Discovered by Nobel Prize Winner, Niels Finsen in 1903. The German soldiers in WWI used this knowledge and disinfect and healed their wounds using sunlight. (via mindbodygreen.com)

  1. Improves brain function.

This doesn't mean you should look directly into the sun, but if you open your curtains and let your eyes be exposed to natural outdoor light, our brains tend to work better. (via philmaffetone.com)

  1. You gain a higher possibility for weight loss.

  1. Improves sleep quality.

Melatonin is the hormone that helps you get quality sleep. And if you are exposed to sunlight during the day, then you produce more melatonin, making you have a deep and good sleep. (via care2.com)

  1. Lessens stress and mild depression.

Sunlight can actually lessen stress and fight mild depression. That's why it can be a bit depressing on days that we don't see the sun, because sunlight can be a mood booster. (via top10homeremedies.com)

  1. Relieves body aches.

Another benefit that sunlight can give you is that it could relieve the pains and aches you feel after a workout. According to research, the soreness lessens because of the anti-inflammatory effects that you can get from the sun's Vitamin D (via theactivetimes.com)
