VITAMIN D AND YOUR SKIN
WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT THE SUNSHINE VITAMIN
Hi everyone, We’re now hearing a lot about Vitamin D deficiency, so here’s a bit of information on how it helps topically.
First, we know that adequate amounts of Vitamin D are important for strong bones and overall health, but what about our skin? Many factors such as the overuse of sunscreen, working mostly indoors, and overall decreased sun exposure over decades has resulted in a global epidemic, leaving 3 in 4 people deficient in Vitamin D.
If you avoid the sun, are extra diligent with applying sunscreen, and spend most of your day indoors, unfortunately like most people your levels probably aren’t where they should be – meaning your skin is probably suffering.
Secondly, as we age, we lose our skin’s natural ability to produce the vitamin on its own, resulting in premature aging, lines, wrinkles, and weakened immunity to free radicals. Who wants that?
However, research has shown that treating the skin with Vitamin D topically can not only prevent premature aging, but reverse the signs of existing damage.
Luckily, I’ve found that making topical Vitamin D oil a staple in my skincare routine has helped immensely with hormonal breakouts and calming my skin. It’s insanely hydrating and anti-inflammatory, so it’s a game changer for conditions like eczema and rosacea too.
This post comes heavily inspired by this article : https://lifespa.com/is-your-skin-thin-wrinkled-or-saggy/ by Dr. John Doulliard. This video sums it all up when it comes to topical Vitamin D3. Please watch his video and you’ll have a better understanding of why we developed HydratanT,K Vitamin D3 topical oil.
More importantly, for all things health and science, he makes some great points about the necessity of topical Vitamin D in particular.
Did you know that your skin loses about 75% of its ability to produce Vitamin D3 between the ages of 20 and 70? Inadequate Vitamin D in the skin causes it to become thin, saggy, wrinkled, and weak. Your skin is your largest organ, so making sure it’s strong and healthy is incredibly important in preventing premature aging.
Dr. Doulliard isn’t the only professional pushing the power of topical Vitamin D.
Oral Supplementation vs. Topical Application
While ingesting Vitamin D3 is important for overall health, popping a supplement won’t exactly do the trick for your skin. Like I mentioned, your skin is your largest organ. It’s also the last place to receive nutrients and antioxidants from food and supplements. Therefore, providing nearly zero benefits by the time it’s reached. See the issue here?
Applying Vitamin D topically means that you’re pushing the nutrients directly into the skin cells. Resulting in your skin absorbing it first rather than last. The result is healthier, stronger, more hydrated, rejuvenated skin from the outside in. A combination of both methods is best!
There’s a reason why they call it the happy vitamin, I mean the sunshine vitamin!
