Nutritional protection against skin damage from sunlight is increasingly advocated to the general public, but its effectiveness is controversial. In this meta-analysis, we have systematically reviewed the existing literature on human supplementation studies on dietary protection against sunburn by beta-carotene. A review of literature until June 2007 was performed in PubMed, ISI Web of Science and EBM Cochrane library and identified a total of seven studies which evaluated the effectiveness of… Expand

b-Carotene and other carotenoids in protection from sunlight 1 – 3
Protection against skin damage from sunlight by nutritional means has been examined. Likewise, there has been work on the topical application of phytochemicals to the skin. This review focuses on theExpand
Beta-carotene is an important vitamin A source for humans.
Experts in the field of carotenoids met at the Hohenheim consensus conference in July 2009 to elucidate the current status of β-carotene research and to summarize the current knowledge with respectExpand
Beta‐carotene supplementation and cancer risk: a systematic review and metaanalysis of randomized controlled trials
TLDR
The evidence that nutritional prevention of cancer through beta‐carotene supplementation should not be recommended is added, as it was associated with increased risk not only of lung cancer but also of gastric cancer at doses of 20–30 mg day−1, in smokers and asbestos workers. Expand
ß-Carotene and Lung Cancer in Smokers: Review of Hypotheses and Status of Research
TLDR
Human and animal studies have shown that specific circumstances, among them heavy smoking, seem to influence the effect of high β-carotene intakes, and in normal, healthy, nonsmoking populations, there is evidence of beneficial effects. Expand
Cocoa Flavanol Supplementation Influences Skin Conditions of Photo-Aged Women: A 24-Week Double-Blind, Randomized, Controlled Trial.
TLDR
In moderately photo-aged women, regular cocoa flavanol consumption had positive effects on facial wrinkles and elasticity, and Cocoa flavanol supplementation may contribute to the prevention of the progression of photo-aging. Expand
Tomato Phytonutrients Balance UV Response: Results from a Double-Blind, Randomized, Placebo-Controlled Study
TLDR
This well-tolerated, synergistic carotenoid-containing supplement significantly protected against UVB-induced erythema formation and upregulation of proinflammatory cytokines in healthy volunteers. Expand
Nutraceuticals and skin appearance: Is there any evidence to support this growing trend?
TLDR
This paper aims to examine the published scientific evidence for beneficial effects of nutraceuticals on skin appearance, focussing primarily on evidence from randomised controlled trials where available, in relation to skin parameters including wrinkles and hydration. Expand
Photoprotection by dietary carotenoids: concept, mechanisms, evidence and future development.
TLDR
In vitro data show that not only β-Carotene but also other carotenoids are efficient photoprotectors, among them are lutein and structurally unusual phenolic polyenes like 3,3'-dihydroxyisorenieratene. Expand
Intake of oral photoprotectors by postmen in Porto Alegre
TLDR
The intake of oral photoprotectors is low in this population of postmen, and future studies may evaluate the real effect of oralPhotoprotective effect so that preventive measures using this approach can be included inphotoprotection education actions for outdoor workers. Expand
A multifaceted perspective on skin cancer prevention
TLDR
There is evidence that sun safety education in outdoor occupational settings is effective in increasing workers’ protective behaviours and presumably also in reducing sunburn incidence, and six individual projects providing a multifaceted perspective on the prevention of these tumours are included.

Supplementation with beta-carotene or a similar amount of mixed carotenoids protects humans from UV-induced erythema.
TLDR
Long-term supplementation for 12 wk with 24 mg/d of a carotenoid mix supplying similar amounts of beta-carotene, lutein and lycopene ameliorates UV-induced erythema in humans; the effect is comparable to daily treatment with 24mg of Beta- carotene alone. 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
Effects of oral vitamin E and beta-carotene supplementation on ultraviolet radiation-induced oxidative stress in human skin.
TLDR
Although vitamin E supplements significantly reduced the skin malondialdehyde concentration, neither supplement affected other measures of UVR-induced oxidative stress in human skin, which suggested no photoprotection of supplementation. 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
Carotenoids and carotenoids plus vitamin E protect against ultraviolet light-induced erythema in humans.
TLDR
The antioxidants used in this study provided protection against erythema in humans and may be useful for diminishing sensitivity to ultraviolet light. Expand

TLDR
The present data suggest that supplementation with natural carotenoids may partially protect human skin from UVA- and UVB-induced erythema, although the magnitude of the protective effect is modest. 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
Alpha-Tocopherol and beta-carotene supplements and lung cancer incidence in the alpha-tocopherol, beta-carotene cancer prevention study: effects of base-line characteristics and study compliance.
BACKGROUND Experimental and epidemiologic investigations suggest that alpha-tocopherol (the most prevalent chemical form of vitamin E found in vegetable oils, seeds, grains, nuts, and other foods)Expand
Nutritional protection against skin damage from sunlight.
TLDR
Dietary protection is provided by carotenoids, tocopherols, ascorbate, flavonoids, or n-3 fatty acids, contributing to maintenance resistance as part of lifelong protection. Expand

TLDR
Results indicate that betacarotene is taken up into the cell in a dose dependent manner, interacts with UVA radiation in the cell and shows protective properties from the induction of a photoaging-associated mtDNA mutation. Expand
