For those of us in need of additional moisturiser..By
We all know wintery cold weather brings about dry skin. Don’t hide it under long pants and gloves, replenish it!
This study here indicates that lower vitamin D levels may have an effect on our dry skin, might this be the answer to all our problems?!
This vehicle controlled clinical study involved 83 and 61 subjects, where skin conductance tests and blood serum levels were measured after a 1 week washout.
It was found that the subjects with lower levels of vitamin D had lower average skin moisture than those with sufficient vitamin D.
Subsequent supplementation with cholecalciferol resulted in increased skin moisture and reduced dry skin.
Results therefore, indicate that there is a potential link between an adequate vitamin D status of an individual and the hydration level of their stratum corneum.
