All the lastest news, articles and helpful tips from Brixworth Laser and Skincare
We all know that vitamins and minerals play a key role in the health of our skin – but one vitamin in particular has developed a reputation as a skincare saviour.
Vitamin D is known as the ‘sunshine vitamin’, because our body synthesises it when the skin is exposed to the sun. It’s primarily known for its ability to strengthen bones, but it has a multitude of other benefits, including reducing inflammation. This can be a key facet in improving the condition of your skin – conditions such as acne, rosacea and eczema are all linked with inflammation, and vitamin D has been proven to help combat these issues effectively.
Here are just a few of the skincare-related benefits of vitamin D:
Vitamin D is unique in that we must expose our skin to the sun in order to ensure we’re getting enough of it. There are certain vitamin D-enriched foods, and foods where small amounts of vitamin D occur naturally, but the sun is the overwhelming provider of this vital nutrient. There’s just one problem for Brits, especially during winter: most of us haven’t seen enough sun in weeks!
Throughout the winter months, it’s much harder for people in the UK to get the appropriate amount of vitamin D. Many people arrive at work before the sun comes up, and by the time they’re leaving the office, the sun is going down again. There’s also a huge number of cloudy, overcast days, where the sun’s rays and all the vitamin goodness they provide, are blocked.
For those who struggle with poor skin, this can present a real problem. Here are a few tips for getting some extra vitamin D during the winter.
