, want to ask whether using sunblock on the face but not on the body can inhibit vitamin D from the sun?

1 Answer:

Hello Erika_ka,


Thank you for the question. The body will form vitamin D with the help of sunlight (ultraviolet B / UV B rays). Sunlight on the skin then stimulates the start of the production of vitamin D in the body. In general, using sunscreen will block UV B rays, which can inhibit the production of vitamin D in the body. However, if the other body's skin is still exposed to sunlight (because you don't use sunscreen) UV B rays can still help form vitamin D. Furthermore, not many people use enough sunscreen on their faces so that UV B rays can still enter. . You also need to know that the process of forming vitamin D in the body is not only affected by the use of sunscreen but also age, skin color, body fat, place of residence, and air quality.


That's what I can say, hope it helps.
