Q: Can you get enough Vitamin D from the sun while wearing sunscreen daily, 365 days a year?
A: Yes! Even while wearing sunscreen on the daily you will still get enough UVB rays reaching your skin giving you a dose of Vitamin D. All it takes is about 10-30 minutes worth of exposure. The more melanin (skin pigment) you produce the more exposure you’ll need.
