Dr. Rosenthal recommends taking 2000iu of Vitamin D per day and applying a full spectrum (UVA/UVB) sunscreen. This ensures you will achieve the recommended daily dose of Vitamin D without leading to the breakdown of the collagen in the skin. Other than during the peak of the summer we do not get enough sun to produce sufficient Vitamin D for our needs. So, for most of the year we need to take a Vitamin D supplement.
Ultra violet light from the sun’s rays produce free radicals in the skin that lead to the breakdown of collagen, premature aging and increases the risk of skin cancers. Unwanted brown spots, increased redness and facial veins are other consequences of ultra violet exposure.
