We know that the sun and being outdoors has many benefits to our health. However, it can also present us with brown spots and fine lines, which isn’t ideal for those who are wishing to stay younger for longer.

It’s been found that they could have antioxidants that are needed in order to decrease UV skin damage and support healthy skin.
