How to Get Vitamin D Safely from the Sun

If you live in a northern climate, chances are you’re not getting a lot of sunshine. This may put you at a disadvantage of receiving adequate vitamin D, the sunshine vitamin. Vitamin D is important to the function of our immune system, bones and overall health. In fact, our bodies recognize its need so much that our skin synthesizes it when we are outdoors and are directly exposed to UVB rays. If you are not getting enough vitamin D through your diet or from the sun, taking supplements will help to increase your intake. Many people are deficient in vitamin D but what’s particularly notable is that those who suffer from psoriasis, atopic dermatitis and other skin diseases have very low levels of the vitamin and should consider sun therapy in conjunction with our line of products as an added healing method towards better skin health.

Dormer’s History with Hyaluronic Acid

Here at Dormer, we pride ourselves for being one of the early adopters of incorporating hyaluronic acid in our products. Over the years, our clients have seen fantastic results with their skin. We’ve been proponents of the benefits of hyaluronic acid since 1979 and we continue to work closely with dermatologists and skincare specialists to provide products that they feel confident in recommending to their patients.

What is not widely known is that hyaluronic acid is a compound that occurs naturally in the body but as we age, our ability to produce it decreases. Hyaluronic acid is responsible for attracting large amounts of water to the skin. It can hold up to six litres of water, restoring the skin’s moisture balance and promoting collagen synthesis. Without it, our skin’s cell renewal rate slows down which can cause the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and dull skin. The skin is our largest organ and it’s important to take care of it in its entirety, not just our face. Try our best-selling Dormer 211 Cream for whole body hydration.
