since I've been spending so much time in the sun lately I thought I'd share something I read on foxnews.com about foods that naturally protect you from the sun & it's effects!
Tomatoes, Watermelon, and Berries - contain the antioxidant lycopene which reduces your skin’s sensitivity to sunburn.
Spinach - contains antioxidant which destroy free radicals in the body
Broccoli - is involved with collagen production
Carrots & Sweet Potatoes - darken the skin & protect it from the sun
Green & Black Tea - lower the risk of squamous cell carcinomas
Omega 3 (fish) - lowers the risk of getting Melanoma (a deadly type of cancer)
Dark Chocolate - reduces the reddening effects of UV rays
Good thing I just started liking fish & broccoli huh?
