Enhance Your Sun Protection with Healthy Food!

Nov 19, 2019

We all know that you should shield yourself from the summer sun with protective clothing – like big, floppy hats – and you should always use plenty of sunscreen. But did you know that you can also help keep your skin safe from the sun’s damaging rays with your healthy diet? You can, and it’s as easy as buying fresh summer fruits and vegetables and including them with every meal!

The foods that we eat daily can have a substantial impact on our body’s ability to fight off the effects of the sun. Eating foods rich in antioxidants and vitamins like C and E can help to provide some additional protection against harmful UV rays. Make sure you protect yourself from the sun with sunscreen and protective clothing, but supplement your protection on the outside with protection from the inside. Include a healthy mix of fruits and vegetables, including some of the foods listed below, and you will be on your way to keeping your skin safe and glowing year-round!

Citrus Fruits
Strawberries
Asparagus
Almonds
Green, Leafy Vegetables
Tomatoes
Sweet Potatoes
Watermelon
Green Tea
Salmon
Carrots


Enjoy summer produce and sunshine together!
