It’s the elusive sunshine vitamin, difficult to obtain naturally even with a balanced diet and plenty of exercise. Fortunately, there are quite a few beauty products enriched with vitamin D, which is essential for strong bones and teeth due its ability to absorb calcium into the body. Here’s a list of some lotions and potions to keep in mind if you want to include more of the vitamin and its nutrients into a healthy lifestyle.

The oil is massaged into the face, neck, and chest area for improved skin quality.
