Submitted by:

Take vitamin D supplements one or two weeks before sun exposure. Then make sure you slather on the suncream as normal!

What You'll Need

  • A good quality supplement of vitamin D
  • And good sunscream. The Vit D doesnt help prevent sunburn, but it helps allow your skin to receive the sun

What You'll Do

  • It's hard to give a prescriptive amount of Vitamin D to take since technically people each have individual deficiencies. I would def take around 1,000 ius every day for a week before getting in the sun

Tips & Warnings

  • Please get tested for you vitamin D levels before doing this as there is such a thing as too much vitamin D.
