An article by an international team of scientists has revealed how deficiency of vitamin D levels in the skin of sufferers of cystic acne leads to their skin turning crusty even fibrotic.

Vitamin D is an important hormone that controls our skins defences against skin cancer inflammation and photoaging. It is essential to reaching our brain and retina (neochromatin). However vitamin D deficiency in certain people causes them to develop skin cancer or fails to retain adequate levels in the skin.

Some of the most common symptoms of D-deficiency type are dry scaly arms and legs eyes that constantly throw to the ground and skin that often turns crusty. In young children however vitamin D deficiencys effects are largely forgotten or misperceived and they drop below negativenormal levels in early childhood. Thus they are sometimes misdiagnosed as a child disease.
