UV irradiation of the skin leads to the induction of free radicals, carcinogenesis, and skin aging, and thus the use of beta-carotene in humans as a chaperoning agent is discussed. In the photohemolysis model, beta-carotene protects against the phototoxic effects of porphyrins. Beta-carotene should be used in erythropoietic protoporphyria, photosensitive diseases, and to reduce the effects of phototoxic drugs. Its effects on aging skin and on actinic keratosis have not yet been sufficiently… Expand
UV Irradiations, Micronutrient Supplementation, and Cutaneous Health: Overview
The most probable mechanism of photoprotective effects of vitamin C, vitamin E, b -carotene, lycopene, and omega-3 against UV light damages may be ascribed to their antioxidant functions, in factExpand
Do We Utilize Our Knowledge of the Skin Protective Effects of Carotenoids Enough?
TLDR
Carotenoids may be helpful in the prevention and treatment of some photodermatoses, including erythropoietic protoporphyria (EPP), porphyria cutanea tarda (PCT) and polymorphous light eruption (PMLE), and available studies still could not undoubtedly confirm the protective role of carotenoid in skin photocarcinogenesis.

Comparative Study of Beta Carotene Determination by various Methods : A Review
β-Carotene, a precursor of vitamin A, possesses pronounced radical scavenging properties. It is an orange colored pigment, which is present in many fruits and vegetables. This review criticallyExpand
The Benefits and Risks of Certain Dietary Carotenoids that Exhibit both Anti- and Pro-Oxidative Mechanisms—A Comprehensive Review
TLDR
Understanding singlet oxygen reactions and the anti-/pro-oxidant roles of carotenoids are of importance to photosynthesis, vision and cancer. Expand
Fucoxanthin for Topical Administration, a Phototoxic vs. Photoprotective Potential in a Tiered Strategy Assessed by In Vitro Methods
TLDR
In vitro results showed fucoxanthin protective potential to the skin that might contribute to improving the photoprotective potential of sunscreens in vivo. Expand
Bioactive Compounds for Skin Health: A Review
TLDR
The aim of the study was to review the literature on the effects of bioactive substances on skin parameters such as elasticity, firmness, wrinkles, senile dryness, hydration and color, and to define their role in the process of skin ageing. Expand
In vitro techniques to assess the proficiency of skin care cosmetic formulations
TLDR
Various in vitro methods that are used for the development of novel cosmetic formulation are conferred to reduce skin disorders such as hyper pigmentation, skin aging, skin wrinkling and rough skin texture. Expand
Oxidative Stress in Aging Human Skin
TLDR
In this review the overall effects of oxidative stress are discussed as well as the sources of ROS including the mitochondrial ETC, peroxisomal and ER localized proteins, the Fenton reaction, and such enzymes as cyclooxygenase, lipoxygenases, xanthine oxidases, and NADPH oxidases. Expand
Selected plant oils as a source of carotenoids for the applications in cosmetology
Introduction. Plant oils, due to the content of polyunsaturated fatty acids, which have a positive effect on the condition of the skin, are widely used in cosmetology. Some of them are also used as aExpand
Nutrition and bullous skin diseases.
TLDR
This contribution reviews the evidence in the literature of the role of various dietary factors in bullous diseases, including the nonautoimmune and the deficiency dermatoses and recommends strategies for better management for patients affected by these conditions. Expand

CAROTENOIDS AFFECT DEVELOPMENT OF UV‐B INDUCED SKIN CANCER
TLDR
The results indicate that the carotenoids canthaxanthin and (J‐carotene interfered with the progression phase in this system; whether they also had an effect during induction could not be definitely determined from data. Expand
A clinical trial of the effects of oral beta-carotene on the responses of human skin to solar radiation.
TLDR
The observed effects were too small to recommend the use of beta-carotene as a photoprotective agent for sunburn, but the methods developed provide a workable model for randomized controlled trials for evaluating the efficacy of systemic photoprotsective agents. Expand
Impairment of enzymic and nonenzymic antioxidants in skin by UVB irradiation.
TLDR
It is indicated that immediately after exposure to a large fluence of ultraviolet radiation the enzymic and nonenzymic antioxidant capacity of skin decreases significantly. Expand
Effect of beta‐carotene supplementation on the human sunburn reaction
TLDR
Oral beta‐carotene supplementation is unlikely to modify the severity of cutaneous photodamage in normal individuals to a clinically meaningful degree, and provided no clinically or histologically detectable protection against a 3 MED sunburn reaction. Expand
Systemic beta carotene plus topical UV-sunscreen are an optimal protection against harmful effects of natural UV-sunlight : results of the Berlin-Eilath study
TLDR
Presupplementation with moderate doses of beta carotene before and during natural sunlight exposure combined with topical sunscreens are more effective than sunscreen cream alone. Expand
Skin lycopene is destroyed preferentially over beta-carotene during ultraviolet irradiation in humans.
TLDR
It is concluded that a single 120-mg dose of beta- carotene increases plasma and skin beta-carotene concentrations and has no effect on plasma andSkin lycopene concentrations, suggesting a role of Lycopene in mitigating oxidative damage in tissues. Expand
Do oral carotenoids protect human skin against ultraviolet erythema, psoralen phototoxicity, and ultraviolet-induced DNA damage?
TLDR
It is concluded that carotenoid protection against UVB-induced carcinogenesis does not operate by reducing the number of mutagenic lesions in DNA, and reactive oxygen species may not be involved in PUVA-erythema production or, alternatively,Carotenoids may not quench these radicals sufficiently in vivo. Expand
Effect of beta-carotene supplementation on photosuppression of delayed-type hypersensitivity in normal young men.
TLDR
It is concluded that beta-carotene protects against photosuppression of immune function and was significantly suppressed in the placebo group after UV treatments. Expand
beta-Carotene and the role of intervention studies.
TLDR
Possible explanations for beta-carotene's disappearance in clinical trials are presented, as is the danger of reductionist approaches to the explanation of the complex nutrition-related biology of cancer. Expand
Interaction between β-carotene and lipoxygenase in human skin
beta-Carotene is widely used in skin care therapy. Its effects on skin are unclear, but actions on lipid peroxidation pathways may be an important element of any protection activities it exerts. ThisExpand
