Dermatologists Say Get Some Sun

Tuesday, March 5th, 2019

A pair of Washington, D.C. dermatologists suggest a number of reasons to get some moderate sun exposure every day in an article from Some of the benefits Dr. Brian Dixon and Dr. Elizabeth Tanzi list are not the ones we most commonly hear about: healthy hair, improved mood, strong teeth and healthy skin.

Here are some excerpts from the article:

  • “To maintain healthy hair, Dr. Tanzi says it’s important to get the proper levels of vitamin D every day. Dr. Dixon explains that vitamin D is actually found inside the follicles of healthy hair, but is absent from follicles of unhealthy hair.”
  • “Another thing vitamin D helps with is improving your mood, says Dr. Dixon. So if your stress levels are a little high, go outside for a few minutes.”
  • “There are only so many ways that you can get stronger teeth once you’re an adult, and tending to your vitamin D intake is one of them,” says Dr. Dixon.
  • “According to Dr. Dixon, some studies have shown that vitamin D can help protect the skin from the sun’s damaging effects, keep inflammation under control, and even help with cell renewal and tissue repair. And if that’s not a reason to catch a few, quick rays, I don’t know what is.”
