The exact cause of all Melanomas isn't clear, but exposure to ultraviolet (UV) radiation from sunlight or tanning beds increases your risk of developing melanoma due to skin mutations; these mutations prompt the cells to grow abnormally and spread to other tissues in the body, where it can be fatal. But, A recent study shows that hesperidin, a flavonoid found in this anti-aging mask, can protect against skin degradation after exposure to ultraviolet B (UVB) radiation. The paper, which appeared in BMC Complementary and Alternative Medicine, also prevented UVB-induced skin thickening, wrinkle formation, and inflammation. Some bullet points of the study are:
The findings suggest that hesperidin contained potent anti-photoaging activity, through MMP-9 regulation. Click here for the full study
Of course, we believe that these results need to be repeated and confirmed, and that it’s too early yet to know if hesperidin can protect you from skin cancer. But the findings support the idea that there might be more you can do to protect yourself from the sun’s harmful rays than only slathering your body in sunscreen.
If nothing else, the Super-Lifting and Firming Anti-Aging Sheet Mask , with its unique combination of patented potent antioxidants will boost your skin's natural collagen production and help keep your skin looking younger, longer.
