Skin conditions from acne to eczema, are conditions that many people deal with on a daily basis and can foster a feeling of low self-worth. Many times, these conditions stem from an overall health issue and not just a surface ailment. Meeting with a dermatologist and discussing your overall health and skin can help you start a journey of better health and better skin. Many times we think of dermatology as some creams and washing our face, but the nutrition that we put into our bodies play in a big way.
Dr. Tim Ioannides is a dermatologist is a big proponent of vitamin D in skin care. Vitamin D is essential for bone and teeth strength and it also helps our immune system, nervous system and brain. Although we can get vitamin D from our diets and, most of all, the sun, many of us lack the proper amount.
According to Dr. Tim Ioannides, this is due to diet, being overweight, not enough sun exposure year-round, too much sunscreen, age, spending too much time indoors and conditions that adversely affect digestion. There are signs to watch for that may indicate that you are low in vitamin D.
These signs are: getting sick frequently, feeling tired all the time, back pain, depression and more. Of course, you should see your doctor if you are experiencing any of these symptoms and they can take a blood test to see if you might be vitamin D deficient. Go Here for additional information
