Millenials are experiencing hair loss at an alarming rate, and vitamin D deficiency is partly to blame. Hair loss can be humiliating, especially at a young age, so it’s important to maintain healthy levels of vitamin D. Spending time outdoors and eating food rich in Vitamin D during the winter are two ways you can ensure you’re getting enough vitamin D for healthy living.
A growing number of experts support the positive health effects of sunlight itself, with the implication that perhaps current sun exposure guidelines may be too rigid or even harmful. When sunlight as a whole is demonized, we at Skinergies believe in photoadaptation and narrow down to incidental sun exposure, that we should worry about.
Regular, reasonable and unprotected (ie without sunscreen) exposure to sunlight has many health benefits, starting with vitamin D synthesis and melanin stimulation, and could represent lower risks of developing skin cancer. Unusual and controversial? Maybe, but it is not us at Skinergies saying it, it’s SCIENTISTS.
Winter sun skin damage affects many people as they simply don’t understand UVA radiation. While sunburn-causing UVB rays get most of the headlines, UVA is harmful too. If you don’t protect your skin during the winter, you may experience skin damage that leads to photoaging. No matter the season, even low levels of the sun’s radiation adds up over time and can cause harm to our winter-weakened skin. So always remain sun smart, especially under the winter’s sun.
