Can strawberries help protect against UVA radiation?

Can strawberries help protect against UVA radiation?

Strawberries can be a scrumptious addition to any fruit salad or late summer dessert, but did you also know that they may be able to protect against UVA radiation? According to a recent study published in the Journal of Agricultural Food Chemistry, strawberry extract may unlock the secret to preserving your complexion's luminous glow.

What's so great about strawberries? When exposed to samples of human skin cells, researchers found that concentrated extracts of the fruit helped increase cell survival and decrease damage related to UVA radiation.

"These aspects are of great importance as they provide protection for cell lines subject to conditions that can provoke cancer and other skin-related inflammatory and degenerative illnesses," explained Maurizio Battino, researcher at the Università Politecnica delle Marche in Italy and lead author of the study.

Battino and colleagues suggest that the potency of strawberries may be related to anthocyanins, which are the anti-inflammatory pigments that also give the fruit it's red color. While the study reveals an important tool in the fight against sunburns, it may be wise to still cover up with sunblock before heading to the beach.

For added protection outdoors, be sure to grab sunscreen products like La Thérapie Glycolic Lotion Renew Glycolic day lotion for skin resurfacing SPF 30, which can also smooth out fine lines and reduce acne scarring.
