Benefits of Vitamin D on Your Skin:
Both Vitamin D3 and D2 are key when it comes to the overall health of your skin. And you know how it goes, beauty reflects on health.
Vitamin D rejuvenates the skin.
Taking supplements as well as applying a topical cream can effectively help treat Psoriasis. Psoriasis is a pretty nasty skin condition that causes your cells to grow way too fast. This then leads to thicker, flaky, uneven skin with either white or red dry, itchy patches. Not pretty at all.
Vitamin D3 is packed with string anti inflammatory properties. This means that is great not only to help heal and soothe burns and injuries, but it can actually help repair skin damage too.
Vitamin D3 helps prevent/ reduce the appearance of stretch marks.
Vitamin D also acts as an antioxidant, and by now you should know what that means. ANTIOXIDANTS = ANTI AGING. This leads to a myriad of benefits. It fights off those nasty free radicals that you get from harmful UV rays, toxins, a bad diet, and other environmental factors such as pollution and smoke, free radical that can do some serious damage if not taken care of.
Having said that, Vitamin D can repair sun damaged skin, prevent and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, even out skin tone, and keep skin smooth, supple, and moisturized as well. On a much more serious note, Vitamin D can even help prevent cancer.
Vitamin D helps treat acne, eczema, and rosacea.
How To Get Your Vitamin D Fix?
Well, it is called the sunshine vitamin for a reason. You get Vitamin D from being under the sun. Ironically, the sun can be both the cause as well as the cure. Truth be told, staying under the sun isn’t all that bad- just don’t go tan crazy and bake yourself the whole day. Limit your exposure and avoid the 12:00-3:00 pm heat. Early morning sun is the best.
You can also get Vitamin D from food, although it usually isn’t enough on it’s own.
Taking a a vitamin D supplement is definitely safe, not harmful UV rays, and sufficient, you will get what you need from popping a pill.
