The conditions of a summer vacation do not favour decidedly not the protection of the skin. We expose ourselves more, the sunscreen is not because of the heat, sweating or swimming, and exposes them to sunburn, and even the diet affects the health dermal.

A study from the university of Texas Soutwestern has shown that eating schedules shifted exposes the skin to more of burns caused by the sun. To avoid sunburn, it should, therefore, also limit the small snacks at night or barbecues late, the researchers explain in an article published in the journal Cell reports.

More lesions

“These results are surprising, said Dr. Joseph Takahashi, a biologist and neuroscientist at the university of Southwestern. I do not think that the skin was what was happening on the side of the power supply “. The researchers, however, remain cautious about the results because they were obtained in mice.

“It is still difficult to transpose these results to humans, but it is fascinating to see that the skin may be sensitive to the timing of the meals,” adds Dr. Bogi Andersen, professor of biochemistry at the university of California, Irvine, and co-author of the study.

To simulate a power offset, the researchers fed mice in the day, which is unusual for them. These mice, exposed to UV-B, ultraviolet radiation, the most carcinogenic, showed more lesions than mice fed normally.
