Strawberries for sun damage

Eat your strawberries! A study done at the University of Barcelona shows that strawberry extract reduces the risk of DNA damage to skin cells when the cells are exposed to UV light. Scientist suspect this is due to the anthocyanins which give the berries their beautiful color. Anthocyanins have anti oxidant, anti inflammatory and anti tumor properties. 

Now strawberry extract is being used in face creams! Find Luxury Strawberry Face Cream at Luxury Decadent Bath and Body Essentials. I haven't tried it but it looks like and interesting product.
