Is Vitamin D The New Cure For Sunburn ?

science may have just discovered a sunburn treatment that doesn’t involve a massive bottle of aloe vera.According to a study published in the Journal of Investigative Dermatology, popping a vitamin D supplement right after your skin gets scorched, could make a big difference in how bearable your burn is. For the study, researchers from Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine teamed up with University Hospitals Cleveland Medical Center to test the effects of vitamin D on the sunburn healing process. An hour after giving participants small sunburns using a UV lamp, the researchers gave them either a placebo pill, or a dose of 50,000, 100,000 or 200, 000 IU of vitamin D. They found that the participants who had taken the 200,000 IU vitamin D supplement had less redness, swelling and skin inflammation 48 hours after being burned.
