This review provides an overview of important concepts and trends in photoprotection. From the use of
protective clothing to latest-generation oral photoprotectives, this article covers these topics from two points of view: 1)
the physical blockade (absorption and/or reflection) of UV photons by topical sunscreens; 2) topical compounds with
antioxidant properties that thereby protect of the consequences of UV-mediated photooxidation. The last section is
devoted to the development of strong antioxidant oral compounds and discusses their possibilities as adjuvants in skin
protection and repair and regeneration.
