For the last couple years, I’ve been working on skin care recipes. It’s been a blast making everything I use myself. From deodorant to mineral makeup, there isn’t a product we can’t make ourselves–and it’s usually cheaper and better than what you can get in the store. For a while, I was selling products on PrimalGirlBeauty.com but the Valley Fire last year took care of that. Thankfully, I got my recipes out of the house before it burned to the ground. I’m almost ready to release them in e-book format, but first I need some help.
I’ve created an incredible recipe that seems to zap inflammation overnight, speed healing and reduce scarring. Anytime I’ve tested it out on myself, I’ve had amazing results. The problem is, I just don’t have enough inflammation to be able to effectively test this stuff on myself anymore and it needs to be tested. In the past, I’ve induced flare ups by eating my trigger foods but I no longer want to do that to myself. If this works for more people than just me, it could be an amazing boon for those of us with Hidradenitis suppurativa, acne, ingrown hairs and other inflammatory skin conditions. We can make this cream ourselves, for pretty cheap. And we can play around with the recipe and add things like Manuka Honey or cannabis butter, which many of us have found to reduce inflammation and to be incredibly healing for our skin.
While I was doing research into the vitamins and minerals that are very effective for healing our skin and reducing inflammation I found a common denominator: Vitamin D3. The following nutrients are all co-factors for Vitamin D3. That means that in order for D3 to work properly, they must all be present. Most of us are deficient in most, if not all, of them.
- vitamin k2
- vitamin A
I have been using all of the above minerals and vitamins on my skin and have had great results. They are all natural and can be found either in salt or in certain foods. I’ve also added 20 minutes of sun therapy per day. I live in a hot, sunny climate so I simply sunbathe naked outside. If you can’t do that, light therapy, tanning beds or Vitamin D3 supplementation of some kind should be on your radar.
Here’s the thing: We already know that skin is a crucial catalyst and gateway for vitamin D to get to where it needs to in the body. “Vitamin D is primarily synthesized in skin exposed to UV light, if not obtained by diet or supplements,” explains Jean Y. Tang, M.D., Ph.D., assistant professor of dermatology at Stanford University School of Medicine.
And since over time, the skin’s ability to create vitamin D decreases (up to 75 percent from the age of 20 to 70) you’ll eventually have to pop more vitamin D supplements to reach standard levels than when you were younger. (That’s one of the reasons why Grandma is more likely to be diagnosed with osteoporosis, because of D’s crucial role in bone health.)
But does D play a much more superficial role? “Vitamin D is a key ingredient for beautiful looking skin,” says Dennis Gross, M.D., a dermatologist in New York City and creator of his namesake skincare line. “Skin, like all organs, needs vital vitamins to function properly—and vitamin D is one of them.”
