Just A rays are responsible for the effect of "photo-aging", they penetrate deeper than in the rays and damage the "skeleton" of the skin, its collagen fibers. It was under their influence, the skin becomes loose, wrinkled, loses its elasticity. In addition, the rays of the spectrum A kill white blood cells - a vital part of the human immune system, as well as change the structure of skin cells, causing various allergic reaction to sunlight.

Importantly, the better its protective properties are shown after heat treatment. For example, daily consumption of 60 grams of tomato paste is equivalent to a sunscreen with a 3 degree of protection from UV radiation.
For better assimilation by the body of carotenoids should be used in combination with a fat-containing products. Ideal - olive oil, which is in itself a powerful antioxidant, but is perfect and sunflower.
