When it comes to the role and importance of vitamin D3, confusion abounds. Fear not, we’ll explain. Most people know vitamin D3 is valuable for overall health and wellbeing. But, many people don’t realize vitamin D3 is also indispensable to the health, beauty and longevity of the human body’s largest organ - your skin.
You may not know that your skin is the last organ to receive vitamin D from the food and supplements you eat. That’s because much of the active vitamin D3 is used to help build and maintain strong bones.
When vitamin D isn’t at proper levels, your skin’s epidermal cells won’t divide, differentiate and replenish as effectively as they should. Low vitamin D levels can cause outer skin layers to become thinner and more fragile, which makes skins sag from lack of adequate support.
However, if Vitamin D3 is applied topically, it delivers benefits directly to your skin, preserving its softness, health and youthful appearance. It also contributes to skin-cell growth, repair and metabolism, as it mobilizes the skin’s immune system and helps destroy free radicals that can cause premature aging.
