The Sunshine Vitamin

Although we (skincare professionals) stress the damaging effects of the sun, sunshine is not our enemy. There are many wonderful benefits of spending time in the sun. Just stay protected, and don't over do it. Moderation in all things is key;)
Vitamin D Comes From the Sun ; Sunlight is the best and the only natural source of vitamin D.  Hundreds of studies now link vitamin D deficiency with higher rates of cancers‚ heart disease‚ osteoporosis‚ multiple sclerosis and many other conditions and diseases. Vitamin D also helps with depression and supports a healthy immune system.

It is essential that we get our daily dose of "D" from the natural sunlight. XOXO
