Vitamin D

Vitamin D

Vitamin D is said to brighten a dull complexion and acts as an anti-inflammatory. This gives the skin time then to boost its elasticity and fight acne. We achieve vitamin D through exposure to the sun. However, as we age we produce less and less of it. Vitamin D deficiency thus leads to psoriasis lesions.

Solution: Fat Soluble

Tip: It is better to take Vitamin D orally than it is to apply it directly to the skin as it is fat-soluble.  The vitamin attaches itself to fat, which in turns stores in in the body.

Types

  • Ergocalciferol (Deltalin): Another name for Vitamin B2.
  • Cholecalciferol (Toxiferol): Another name for Vitamin D3. This is the steroid of the Vitamin B’s which helps to firm the skin
