Vitamin D may be helpful for fair-skin

If you're fair-skinned and prone to sunburns, research from England suggests you may benefit from taking Vitamin D.

Even lots of sun exposure, which is how the body makes the vitamin, might not make enough for those with fair-skin.

And since sunburns can cause skin cancer, researchers say taking supplements instead could raise Vitamin D levels to normal.

Vitamin D is important for healthy bones and teeth.
