Direct (not behind a glass/window) sunlight.

Sunscreen reportedly prevents the skin from producing Vitamin D while out in the sun.

-> If a person with very fair, sunburn-prone skin isn't planning on being in the sun for a long time, and the rays aren't too intense (i.e. summer evenings), some recommend going without sunscreen so the skin can produce some vitamin D.

- The further a person is from the equator and the darker their skin, the longer sun exposure they need.

*antioxidants, such as those found in berries and brightly coloured fruits and vegetables, greatly boost the body's ability to handle sunlight without burning.
