Sunshine at last or going for the well-deserved holidays?
Antioxidants can prevent against sun damage from the inside. Scientists have found that supplementation with Beta-Carotene together with Vitamin E for 12 weeks significantly increases resistance to sunburn.
These antioxidant nutrients seem to work synergistically to prevent reddening of the skin, which is characteristic of over-exposure to the sun.
Remember that these useful products do not replace the need for an appropriate sunscreen lotion or cream.
Beta-Carotene is considered an antioxidant and is also a precursor to vitamin A. This compound helps maintain healthy skin and also plays a vital role in eye health. Studies show the benefits of Beta-Carotene in skin disorders like acne and dermatitis.
