This Vitamin Is A Double-Edged Sword For Healthy Skin

If you crave beautiful, glowing skin…


You NEED this vitamin.


But you need to be careful, because too much of this vitamin can leave you with cracked,

spotty and damaged skin.


So, what IS this fickle nutrient?


Vitamin D, of course.


Now, there’s one big reason why Vitamin D is essential for healthy, lustrous skin (and

the rest of your body’s health for that matter).


Vitamin D regulates AND improves your immune system function.


When you’re experiencing Vitamin D deficiency, you’re more likely to deal with skin

Problems…


Things like atopic dermatitis, psoriasis, and that annoying, uninvited guest...

red and blotchy acne.


The good news is Vitamin D is also chock full of anti-inflammatory properties, which

can soothe skin rashes and acne flare-ups…


Leaving you with creamy, smooth-looking skin.


But here’s the problem…


Vitamin D is one of the only vitamins you can get from the sun, which is why people call

it the “sunshine vitamin.”


Does this mean you should lay around soaking up rays all day long?


Nope.


Your skin doesn’t do well when exposed to the sun - without sunscreen - for long periods

of time. Those UV rays are toxic, and will turn your skin into a wrinkly, shriveled old

Prune.


Even worse, extreme exposure to UV rays can cause skin cancer over time.


So how can you get your much needed dose of Vitamin D?


Simple.


You can get your fix from foods like salmon, sardines, tuna, and cod.


So, plan a few simple fish-based meals this week, like Roasted Lemon Garlic Salmon or

Tuna Salad Sandwiches, and you’ll be well on your way to banishing irritating pimples

and rashes.


Your skin will love you for it.
