Carotenoids help to stimulate fibroblasts, the cells responsible for collagen and elastin synthesis, to help reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. Skin elasticity, density and firmness is also increased. Lycopene is a powerful antioxidant that protects the cells from damage. Lutien is also an antioxidant that helps to protect against UV rays and promotes skin hydration and elasticity. Zeaxanthin is and antioxidant that can help filter blue light.
