DElantox capsules contain beta carotene which is actually a variant of Vitamin A ( Roughly speaking), and also contains Zinc, selenium supplement. These all help in restoring and maintaining the general integerity of skin. It is not a specific medicine for Acute Sun burns but may help in chronic sun damaged skin.

Good balanced diet with lot of carrots and fresh vegetables and salads with virgin olive oil is a long term solution to give nutrition to you skin and body in a natural way instead of short cut of continued use of these medicine which are not sure to help in each case. Olive oil massage of affected skin will help a lot in chronic sun damage. Use sunblock creams if it is must to expose to sun.
