Hi there, I was wondering what effect does putting oil on your skin have when it comes to vitamin D. I am trying to get my levels up, so I avoid excessive soapy showers after sun exposure and putting any cosmetics or sunscreens, but there is one thing that I love to do which is to moisturize my skin with oil (olive, coconut or jojoba) either before or after going in the sun. It keeps my skin from drying out which is great, but could it be getting in the way of my attempt to get ehough vitamin D from sunshine ? Or on the contrary, knowing that vitamin D is fat soluble, could it either make the skin produce more if the oil is applied before sun exposure, or help the vitamin D get through the skin faster if applied after sun exposure ?
