Lycopene Benefits for Skin

It was found that micronutrients such as pure lycopene powder were able to show other benefits including better skin moisturization, skin texture, skin elasticity, and skin superficial structure. It is no wonder that this natural compound can be found in many topically applied cosmetics in regards to optimizing skin care.




What is Lycopene?

Lycopene is a carotenoid − a natural pigment that gives some vegetables and fruits their red color. It is an antioxidant (a substance that protects against cell damage). Tomatoes provide about 80% of the lycopene in the US diet. Tomatoes processed with high heat contain lycopene in a form more usable by the body than in raw tomatoes; however, heat processing can destroy other nutrients such as beta-carotene, vitamin C, and vitamin E. These are also antioxidants. Synthetic lycopene is categorized as “generally recognized as safe” by the US Food and Drug Administration.


How Lycopene Works in our Body?

Lycopene prevents the oxidative damage of DNA, lipids, and proteins. It modulates immune function, and induces apoptotic cell death. It is also suggested to inhibit ROS production and decrease the phosphorylation of extracellular signal-regulated kinase (ERK), which results in the inhibition of cancer cell growth.


Lycopene Benefits for Skin

In addition to its excellent antioxidant activity, lycopene helps improve gap-junction communication. This cell-to-cell communication is important for metabolic processes related to growth and reproduction. Due to the fact that lycopene’s ability to enhance connectivity between cells may result in improved skin texture for younger-looking skin.

Lycopene also helps strengthen the skin by inhibiting collagenase, the activity of enzymes involved in the collagen damage, which breaks down the peptide bonds in the collagen fibers of the skin, leading to loss of integrity and the appearance of sags and wrinkles. Lycopene down-regulates the activity of collagenase and helps enhance the skin’s firmness.

Besides, it was found that micronutrients such as lycopene showed other benefits, including better skin moisturization, skin elasticity, and superficial skin structure.


Lycopene for Skin Whitening

While lycopene has been shown to have brightening effects on the skin, it’s important to note that it does not act as a bleach or skin-whitening agent. Lycopene cannot change the natural color of skin or make it lighter than genetically determined. Conversely, lycopene enhances the skin’s natural glow and reduces the appearance of dark spots and hyperpigmentation.


Lycopene for Acne

Additionally, lycopene has been found to have anti-inflammatory properties, making it beneficial for individuals with sensitive or acne-prone skin. It helps calm redness, soothe irritation, and promote a more even complexion. Another exciting aspect of lycopene is its potential in promoting collagen synthesis.




How Powerful is Lycopene?

Lycopene is one of the most potent antioxidants with a singlet-oxygen-quenching ability twice as high as that of β-carotene and 10 times higher than that of α-tocopherol. It is the most predominant carotenoid in human plasma. Its level is affected by several biological and lifestyle factors.


Does Lycopene Change Skin Color?

While no tanning pills are approved by the FDA, lycopene and astaxanthin aren’t even marketed (and therefore are likely not being tested) for skin darkening — and they definitely aren’t providing any protection against the sun. ”They really do make your skin darker, but not in a protective way like having melanin,”


Is Lycopene Anti Aging?

Lycopene‐rich foods are found to prevent or attenuate aging disorders in various research. Based on the evidence, this review suggests the clinical application of lycopene to improve human health and alleviate the prevalence of aging and aging disorders.


Does Lycopene Make you look Younger?

Lycopene also appears to strengthen skin by inhibiting the activity of collagenases —enzymes involved in the breakdown of collagen in the skin. Collagen helps ensure the firmness and elasticity of your skin and prevents wrinkling.


Does Lycopene Brighten Skin?

Rich in lycopene, tomatoes can help remove stubborn dark spots as well as lighten the skin to give you brighter and more even skin tone.


Does Lycopene make your Skin Glow?

Lycopene is an especially strong antioxidant, so it can help your overall health along with the appearance of your skin. Plus, antioxidants help reverse signs of aging, which means plumper skin and reduced fine lines. All in all, tomatoes help you look a little younger and feel a little better.
