Zinc has anti-inflammatory properties that help improve skin issues including acne, and it heightens the body's ability to promote wound healing [1-4]. Zinc oxide is frequently added to sunscreens as an inorganic physical sun blocker and a zinc-deficiency is associated with oxidative stress-induced aging due to free radicals and oxygen reactive species, which are skin-damaging particles that zinc targets [5-7].
Vitamin E oil helps create a protective barrier on the surface of the skin .
Skin health ; Protection from sun exposure [5-7]
Zinc improves the health through its ability to encourage detoxification and it has also been shown to boost wound healing due to its anti-inflammatory activity [1-4]. Zinc oxide is frequently added to sunscreens as it targets free radicals, thereby preventing them from damaging fibroblasts and lipids (fats) that play a role in protecting the skin from UV exposure or skin irritants (e.g., pollution) . Zinc oxide is also linked to anti-aging due to its ability to protect collagen-producing fibroblast and lipids in the skin .
Zinc oxide creates a protective layer on the skin that blocks UV light and in doing so, it hinders UV rays from penetrating the skin. The structure of zinc oxide helps it mix easily with other topical agents and zinc does not absorb deeply into the skin , which reduces the occurrence of skin irritation and is one of the reasons why it is added to sunscreen for individuals with sensitive skin. These properties make zinc oxide a strong UV-blocking shield.
Vitamin E helps ease sunburn and protects the skin from UV damage due to its soothing, antioxidant, and wound-healing properties .
