Explained: Vitamin D in relation to healthy skin

Often suffer from dry skin? Or a disturbed sebum production that causes acne problems? It is possible that your Vitamin D level plays a role in this because a shortage of Vitamin D can result in different skin complaints.

Vitamin D explained in more detail:

Vitamin D is necessary to absorb calcium from food into the body and thus ensures strong bones and teeth. Vitamin D also plays an important role for the immune system. And last but not least, Vitamin D ensures a well-hydrated skin. Vitamin D deficiency can result in bone loss, depression and muscle weakness. In addition, different skin complaints can arise, such as dry skin or acne due to disturbed sebum production. Sufficient Vitamin D even contributes to a reduction of wrinkles and it gives your skin so wanted glow. But the most important thing is that Vitamin D helps to keep the skin “restful” by the anti-inflammatory effect of acne and reducing redness and possible swelling of the skin.

How do you get enough Vitamin D in:

Sunlight is an important source of Vitamin D. Did you know that Vitamin D is one of the few vitamins that the body can produce itself? In addition to sunlight, Vitamin D can also be found in certain types of foods and you can also opt for supplements. Especially in the autumn and winter you can get more problems with a Vitamin D deficiency because you simply can not be found outside.

Vitamin D in food is mainly found in naturally fatty fish (think of herring and salmon for example). In addition, you will find Vitamin D in eggs, dairy products and also Portobello mushrooms contain a good dose of Vitamin D (Yummie and delicious for autumn).

The daily recommended amount of Vitamin D is 10 micrograms per day at the food center. The advice here is to eat food that contains Vitamin D (according to the disc of five) and to be in the sun for at least 15 – 30 minutes per day. (Note that you must protect the skin from sunburn). If this does not work, then a Vitamin D supplement can work additionally.
