Our series on important vitamins for the skin and body has been very popular. Today, we will analyse the benefits of vitamin D for the skin.

Vitamin D is particularly useful for:

Healthy and strong bones (including teeth) and nails
Healthy eyes
Controls the absorption of calcium
Helps with the absorbtion of vitamin A and C
Helps to prevent osteoporosis due to better calcium absorption by the body
Rumored to help prevent multiple sclerosis

People who are aware of the benefits of vitamins for the body can be better prepared and healthier people. Students who attend beauty courses know that a healthy diet is just as important to maintaining healthy and beautiful skin as he products their clients apply.

In general, vitamin D is important in maintaining a healthy immune system.


Vitamin D is easily acquired from the sunlight. Just 20 minutes of sun exposure could provide you with most of your vitamin D daily needs. If  the sun does not appeal to you, there are a number of different foods that you can consume that naturally contain vitamin D:

  • Milk
  • Salmon
  • Mackerel
  • Tuna
  • Sardines
  • Egg Yolks

People on beauty courses have been told about a number of benefits for the skin that vitamin D can provide. Often, vitamins are included in products that are then directly applied to the skin. It is thought that this can also provide the body with some of its essential nutrients.


Beauty product manufacturers seem to be recognising the importance of vitamins in their formulations. A large range of products now intentionally include vitamins in their ingredients.
