Skin and vitamin D absorption

Help your skin heal!
Other factors for healing include making sure that you are giving your skin foods that your body tolerates and that aren’t causing inflammation in your skin or elsewhere in your body. You also want to make sure that your vitamin D level is adequate. Vitamin D lowers inflammation and actually prevents sunburn. Did you know that vitamin D is washed off with soap, because it takes time for your skin to make vitamin D when exposed to sun?
