GOT MILK? VITAMIN D AND ANTI-AGING

Make no bones about it, Vitamin D is vital for having strong and healthy bones.  But did you know that it is also imperative to have an adequate supply of Vitamin D in order to have a young looking appearance too?  Milk…it does the skin good!

Vitamin D, D3 to be exact, is also called cholecalciferol.  It is a precursor to the active steroid 1,25dihydroxyvitamin D3 (calcitriol) which is important because it controls calcium metabolism.  In the skin, Vitamin D ultimately metabolizes into cholesterol and previtamin D3.  One reason this is so important is that when exposed to UV light, with the presence of these substances, calcitriol is produced to protect the skin from UV damage and skin diseases such as cancer.  When in UV light, it also causes acne to clear up as well as other skin conditions.  But without the presence of cholesterol and previtamin D3, clacitriol is not produced and the effects of exposure to UV light can be damaging and deadly.  Yes, it’s THAT important.

Vitamin D regulates aging.  It does so by regulating fibroblast growth which are proteins that help to control the aging process.  In creams and serums rich in fibroblasts, TFG-B is present and it has been known to induce the production of collagen and fibronectin, two substances that contribute to your skin looking young and fresh.

One way to get Vitamin D is to drink lots of milk.  Another way is take cod liver oil or an ingestible supplement.  Still another method, the one most recommended by La Beauté Pure, is to get ten minutes of unprotected sunlight a day and that is preferably without wearing sunglasses, glasses or contact lenses so the sunlight can filter through the eyes for a maximized effect.  Building up to an hour a day is optimal but be sure not to sunburn.

Although it is very important for growing children to get enough Vitamin D, it is often overlooked how important it is for adults to get their fair share as well.  As we age, the supply of proteins that keep us young looking begin to dwindle.  It is very important to reimburse the supply.  Vitamin D is one of the most important vitamins when it comes to a youthful appearance and when combined with a Vitamin C product such as an organic Vitamin C Serum, the results are amazing.  The two vitamins, D and C work together to repair signs of aging and to restore that radiant glow you once had.

La Beauté Pure knows the importance of Vitamin D and advocates getting healthy sunlight in moderate amounts.  That is why their Vitamin C Serum as well as their Hyaluronic Acid Serum is safe to use with sun exposure.  “There are no ingredients in them that promote sensitivity to the sun,” commented Ann Williams.  “When it comes to anti-aging, it’s important to let the sun shine it!”
