Carotenoids

Is it true that a nutrition rich in carotenoids can provide sun-protected skin?  The answer is: Yes, to some extent you actually can!

Carotenoids can produce a sun protection factor of 2 in the skin when consumed regularly, and even a sun protection factor of 4 when combined with zinc. Nevertheless, despite a nutrition rich in carotenoids, you can’t do without additional sun protection from the outside.

Regardless of their effect protecting from sun, carotenoids are absolute superheroes: Among other things, they are antioxidants, have a positive effect on the cardiovascular system and lower blood pressure. 

So enjoy as many red, yellow and orange foods as possible and get enough carotenoids.
