UK: Tomatoes help protect skin from sun
Recent scientific tests suggest that consumption of tomato paste can help protest against sunburn and damage to skin caused by sunburn.
This is due to the presence of lycopene, the natural ingredient that gives tomatoes their colour.
The study focused on people fed processed tomato products. They were seen to have a reduced redness in skin and less DNA damage when exposed to UV light.
The effects on their skins was compared with those who were instead only olive oil.
The researchers found significant 33% improvement in the skin’s ability to protect itself against UV among those eating tomato paste. The researchers calculated the the effects of tomatoes on the skin were equivalent to a suncream factor 1.3.
Skin samples taken from groups before and after trial showed an increase in levels of procollagen, a molecule which gives skin its structure and loss of which leads to skin ageing and lack of elasticity.
