Abstract

OBJECTIVE:

To study the protective effect of tea pigments on mice skin photoaging induced by UV irradiation.

METHOD:

Total antioxidative ability and content of lipid peroxidation products malondialdehyde in the skin of mice were examined with colorimetry.

RESULT:

By ig or smearing, tea pigments could significantly improve total antioxidative ability and decline content of malondialdehyde in UV-irradiation-induced skin photoaging mice.

CONCLUSION:

The results suggested that tea pigments could prevent mice skin from free radicals injury resulting from UV irradiation and moderate skin photoaging.
