What SPF do you use to prevent skin damage but doesn't block vitamin D? Is it possible?

Sunscreen blocks UV radiation. UV radiation produces Vitamine D. I think ya gotta problem!
You can't have both.  Either sit in the sun and get wrinkles, or wear a good broad spectrum sunscreen and take vitamin d capsules.
15 minutes daily in the sun is enough time to get our daily dose of Vitamin D.  No sunscreen required, unless you're an albino.

15 minutes if you're exposing most of your body.  And just that short amount of time will give you wrinkles.

Everyone gets wrinkles eventually.  That's why we need to get married young or nobody will want us.
POO!

Oh well, rather get wrinkles than be depressed!

Yea but even the seminary won't take you if you have too many wrinkles.  At that point you've only got hard drinkin left to give meaning to your miserable existence.  It's very sad really.
If you want to get fancy with it, only UVB produces Vitamin D, so maybe try to differentially block more UVA since it does nothing to make Vitamin D.

That being said, UVB is responsible for more squamous carcinomas :)
