When it’s taken in tandem with vitamin E, another antioxidant, it may cut down on the risk of sunburn.Vitamin E
Vitamin E has the added benefit of being able to be used topically. Putting it on the skin before slathering on sunscreen can help prevent sunburn. Like vitamin C, vitamin E can also reduce the unpleasantness of hay fever and even asthma.
Vitamin D is not only a vitamin a person takes, it’s a vitamin a person makes. Indeed, it’s one of the few vitamins that the body makes. This is so unusual that some scientists believe that vitamin D isn’t so much a vitamin as a hormone. Whatever it is, it is made when the sun’s ultraviolet rays strike the skin. Deficiency can lead to bone pain, brittle bones and weak muscles, so getting the RDA of vitamin D is a great excuse to get out into the sun for a while.
