the “sunshine vitamin” AKA vitamin D, got its nickname due to 90% of our intake deriving from sun exposure… because only a small percentage of foods contain this vitamin, majority of people are deficient of it. as one of the most vital and preventive nutrients for your health and wellbeing, it’s imperitive to make sure you’re getting your daily fix. deficiency of this vit can lead to osteoperosis, heart disease, depression and cancer to name a few.
so, it’s in your best interest to…
one– get it straight from the source. while we are not advocating you slather up in baby oil and bake under the sun, we are suggesting you give yourself 10 mins of exposure midday. while the skincare industry has given sunlight a bad rep, no research has shown non-burning, small dose exposure to be damaging to the skin.
two– take a supplement. more specifically, vitamin D3 or cholecalciferol. this is the natural form of vitamin D that your body synthesizes from sunlight.
three– use in a serum. helps with acne, hydration, brightens, and evens out skin tone.
