Less time in the sun (less vitamin D3) can make skin more oily. D3 has a lot to do with how your skin retains moisture and produces oil. A lot of people spend less time outside as they get older.
Would taking Vitamin D3 capsules help you think?
Theoretically, however it seems many (perhaps even a majority) of people do not properly absorb vitamin D3 from capsules. That's what the recent studies show and a lot of people anecdotally report. They don't notice any results taking D3 pills, but if they start going outside regularly it makes a difference.
If you go outside for just 30 minutes a day (no sunscreen or makeup), you can get all the D3 you need without causing unnecessary skin damage. We are animals, we are meant to be in the sun sometime It's only recently that we've all decided that being indoors, shut off from light, and layering chemicals on our skin when we go outside is "healthy."
