Beachgoers who imbibe may want to replace beer and cocktails with wine: a new study found that drinking wine protects skin from sun damage. Researchers discovered that the flavonoids in wine grapes interfere with the chemical reaction that happens in the skin when UV rays hit it, stopping the chemical reaction that causes skin cell death.
The study was conducted by the University of Barcelona and the Spanish National Research Council and published in the Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry. Marta Cascante of the University of Barcelona, who directed the research, says that the team's findings could help scientists develop skincare products that more effectively protect the skin against sunburn and sun damage.
