Skin Photoprotection by Carotenoids

  • Regina Goralczyk
  • Karin Wertz
Part of the Carotenoids book series (CAROT, volume 5)


In Western populations, a lifestyle favouring tanned skin leads to increased exposure to natural and artificial sources of UV-radiation (UVR). To keep the adverse effects of this exposure, such as sunburn, immunosuppression, photoaging and photocarcinogenesis, to a minimum, nutritional manipulation of the basic endogenous protective properties of skin is an attractive target. In this respect, considerable interest has been directed for many years towards the dietary carotenoids, because of their radical scavenging and singlet oxygen quenching properties and thus their putative role in photochemistry, photobiology and photomedicine.
