Sunscreen Pill: Protect Your Skin from Within

Would you try a sunscreen pill? Products are available to help take some of the burn out of being in the sun, but should they replace your topical sunscreen? Learn more at eVitamins Schweiz.

As we've discussed on this blog before, just because you know sunscreen protects your skin from the harmful rays of the sun doesn't mean you apply it. You may say it's too messy or inconvenient or you don't like how it smells -- any reason to get yourself out of it.

This feeling, and the unsettling rise in occurrences of skin cancer, has led scientists to look into the possibility of sun protection in pill form. That's right, an oral supplement to block out the sun's harmful rays from within. While we're not quite there yet, there are some products available to now to help prevent some of the damaging effects of the sun's rays.

How They Work

The body does need some daily, unprotected exposure to the sun's rays to obtain vitamin D, which is essential for bone and tissue health, among other benefits. The hope of an oral sunscreen or sunblock pill is to prevent the damage the sun's UVA and UVB rays can cause. This includes sunburn, wrinkles, age spots and even skin cancer. However, research remains ongoing to develop the ultimate sunscreen pill, but is getting close. Scientists are examining coral, which are able to protect themselves from the sun's harmful rays that could damage them over time, being they're stationary.

What is available now are antioxidant supplements that support healthy skin and may prevent you from getting burned after an extended period of time in the sun. These products contain vitamins, like vitamin A and vitamin E, as well as herbal extracts and oils that all support healthy skin. Their job is to prevent the oxidative stress caused by free radicals that can damage the skin over time and make you look older.

Want to try it?

If the idea of sunscreen or sunblock in a pill appeals to you, try this:

Pura Sun from PuraLex
Each serving of this supplement provides 25,000 IU of vitamin A and 1.5 IU of vitamin E, which are both powerful antioxidants that support healthy skin. This product also contains borage seed oil, a rich source of gamma linolenic acid (GLA), which also nourishes and protects the skin. This combination helps fortify the skin's sensitive layers against the damaging effects of the sun, so you get a deep, golden tan and not a burn. PuraLex also recommends taking this supplement following sun exposure to prolong your tan.

The Bottom Line

These supplements shouldn't be used in place of any topical sunblock or sunscreen. Your skin needs protection from the sun's harmful rays for more reasons than wrinkles and if there was a pill to 100 percent prevent skin cancer (or any kind of cancer), we would all be taking it. That being said, these products can help you protect the health of your skin in other ways, delaying the physical signs of aging associated with sun exposure, so using them in combination with a lotion, cream or spray with SPF provides a one-two punch. Limiting your time in the sun also recommended, instead of roasting for hours on end.
