What is Ultraviolet (UV) radiation?
It is produced by sun and it is also the best source of Vitamin D. It is measured by Ultraviolet Index (UVI). Eye and skin protection are needed if the UV index reading exceeds 6. In Singapore, the UVI is reported on hourly basis, from 7am-7pm and UVI will reduced in presence of rain and/or under cloudy conditions*. On average, UVI is highest during noon time, from 12-2pm. Thus, avoid sun exposure during this timing and eat your sun protection!

However, its unprotected exposure to UVB that can damage skin cells and cause photodamage. SPF measures sunscreen protection from UVB rays.
Addition of astaxanthins, a family member of carotenoids, may help in fighting free radicals and improve skin conditions such as reddened skin, hot, swollen and painful skin. Severe photodamage will even lead to formation of blister or peeling of skin. Rosemary helps in promoting skin elasticity and protect the skin from sun damaged.
