What’s the deal with vitamin D?

Only recently have people started talking about the vitamin D deficiency epidemic. Vitamin D is not only a key vitamin but also a hormone with far-reaching effects on our body. A lack of vitamin D is linked to weakened immunity and bones, diabetes, cancer, heart disease, fatigue, hair loss, weight gain, dementia and even depression. On top of these chronic issues, vitamin D is crucial for acne prevention, skin cell repair, and overall skin health. But there’s a catch: while exposure to sunlight is beneficial to restore low vitamin D levels, too much sunlight can be harmful and may contribute to skin cancer and premature aging. Appropriate use of sunblock may further reduce vitamin D production. With all this in mind, Solaana MD is changing the face of skin health.

What factors affect vitamin D levels?

Environmental, genetic and lifestyle factors all affect our levels of vitamin D. Normally our body obtains vitamin D by eating foods high in vitamin D such as egg yolks, fatty fish, and fortified dairy products, through supplements, or when our bare skin is exposed to sunlight. However, due to a modern hectic lifestyle, time spent indoors, poor diet and correctly applied sunscreen (which we all should be using) we reduce our body's ability to obtain vitamin D.

Are topical formulations of vitamin D beneficial?

Yes! Healthy Base Layer is suitable for all skin types, genders, age groups and ethnicities. Topical formulations of vitamin D are proven safe and effective in a number of studies published in the scientific literature. If you haven’t already, there are so many reasons to incorporate vitamin D into your daily skincare routine. The direct benefits of vitamin D in the skin are to: alleviate inflammation, improve cell turnover, protect against environmental oxidants, and nourish the skin barrier.

Could I be vitamin D deficient?

78 Million Americans have inadequate levels of vitamin D. If you are concerned you may be vitamin D deficient, consult with your doctor. However, you don’t have to be vitamin D deficient to enjoy the benefits of Solaana MD Healthy Base Layer! 

How do I incorporate Healthy Base Layer into my daily beauty and wellness routine?

Apply Solaana MD Healthy Base Layer liberally twice daily (or as often as desired) to the body for healthy, radiant skin. If applying to the face, apply after your serum, as follows:  Step 1: Cleanse, Step 2: Apply serum, Step 3: Moisturize with Solaana MD Healthy Base Layer. Use it alone or ‘go undercover’ by layering it beneath your preferred sunscreen.
