The Best Natural remedies for Polymorphous Light Eruption (PMLE)
If you suffer from PMLE yourself or have seen a loved one suffering from it, you know how hard it can be to go on a winter holiday or face the first few weeks of Spring and Summer. Sun avoidance (avoiding sunlight, wearing long sleeves, pants and hats), topical or oral steroids are often the only recommended solutions by doctors and dermatologists. For most PMLE sufferers broad-spectrum sunscreen alone won’t be enough to prevent the sun rash. PMLE sufferers worldwide are looking for ways to prevent the rash from appearing.
The natural ingredients no doctors will talk about
Reviewing all studies conducted on PMLE over the past 20 years, it seems one natural remedy is getting very few publicity despite fantastic outcomes. And the best of all is that it is completely natural: Alpha-glucosylrutin and Vitamin E.
Alpha-glucosylrutin, or AGR, is a natural flavonoid modified to become highly water-soluble. It shows strong antioxidant and UV absorption properties and exceptional radical scavenging activity. Alpha Glucosylrutin can help protect the epidermis and dermis against UV-induced damage. Vitamin E is also an antioxidant, making it effective at combating the effects of free radicals and may be beneficial at reducing UV damage to skin.
A formulation using both ingredients in a specific concentration combined with a broad spectrum sunscreen have been tested successfully on two different studies.
The first one conducted by Hadshiew et al tested the efficacy of the formulation [containing 0.25% alpha-glucosylrutin and 1% tocopheryl acetate (vitamin E)] on thirty patients with a history of PMLE. Pretreated with the formulation 30 minutes prior to daily UV-A exposure to the upper arms, only one patient developed clinical signs of PMLE in the area treated. In comparison, 62.1% of the placebo-treated areas and 41.3% of the sunscreen-only treated areas showed mild-to-moderate signs of PMLE. The authors suggested that combining a potent antioxidant with a broad-spectrum sunscreen is far more effective in preventing PMLE than sunscreen alone.
Jeanmougin et al then studied the effectiveness of the same formulation under real solar exposure and over a long period (Spring and Summer). The cream was applied every 2 hours after the first summer exposure. In this study 67% of patients had no eruptions, 19% had minor eruptions, and 13% had severe eruptions of PMLE. The dermatologic assessment was that global efficacy was approximately 80%.
To us it seems alpha-glucosylrutin and Vitamin E is by far, the best natural approach when dealing with Polymorphous Light Eruption. It seems to prevent the sun rash for most.
