Among them, the most reporting functions are "preventing skin dryness" and "ultraviolet protection". Astaxanthin's strong antioxidant property makes it a potential photoprotective agent, which can remove free radicals causing skin aging, protect cell membrane and mitochondrial membrane from oxidative damage and prevent skin photoaging.

The report shows that astaxanthin helps protect the skin from UV stimulation and drying caused by UV irradiation, so as to keep the skin moist. In a Japanese experiment, after 8 weeks of astaxanthin use, crow's feet were significantly improved, the spot diameter was reduced, and the moisture of cheek skin was increased.
