But this is where I come clean to admit that I don’t have perfect skin.
Because of my stubborn personality, I’ll test product variations and ingredients until Earth’s end—which, thank goodness, wasn’t in 2013.
Nevertheless, there is one dosage that has really helped my skin, especially since this winter has brought the plenty of polar vortexes: vitamin D.
In my philosophical meditations, I considered the possible cause of my near impeccable summer skin. I tried reverting back to a replica routine, but I didn’t want to purchase all new products. I concluded that the humidity played a rather integral part (my skin always gets cranky come polar temps). But, beyond that, I also remembered that the occurrence happened while I was in New York City—land of pollution and mandatory pedestrian travels.
That’s it: my miles of walking also meant I spent miles in the sun—a habit that stopped as soon as I returned to suburbia. So I realized that the onset of vitamin D played some component in my skin’s favor.
Well, you better bet it was minutes until I had a tub of capsulated sun of my own and I started dosing up on one pill per night; gosh, this is starting to sound like a druggie confession. Nevertheless, after a few days’ use, I noticed that the majority of my breakouts had seized (especially the ones on my forehead—my largest problem area).
Now, I’m in no way disclosing that I currently boast an imperfection-free complexion—particularly because I currently boast a few stubborn bumps on my chin (and I’ve tried everything…). But, I can’t help but owe this dose of ‘D’ to my clear-as-day forehead; nice image, non?
But, even if you try this complexion tactic for yourself and you don’t see any results in the slightest, I’d say that a dosage can’t hurt. If you don’t eat much dairy like me or are as pale as medicinal gauze (and also tan quite easily, might I add), then you should still take a capsule a day for your own health.
The most considerable reason why this mighty capsule has aided my skin is the disclosure that if I forget to take a dose, the spots start popping again.
Who knew that these small drops could be as mighty as a sword?
