In case you easily burn in the sun, we strongly recommend these 13 foods to include in your diet. According to new research, some foods have the power to protect the skin from damage caused by UV rays of the sun. These healthy products can add internal protection against sunburn and the appearance of wrinkles at the cellular level.
 
Citrus fruits



Citrus fruits have the powerful lemon ingredient associated with an impressive 34% lower risk of skin cancer seen in a study of 470 women and men at the University of Arizona.
 
Green tea



This delicately flavored tea is packed with antioxidants called EGCG. Among their health benefits is the stopping of genetic damage in human skin cells exposed to ultraviolet light.
 
Carrots



Carrots - or any other red, yellow, and orange fruits and vegetables - are rich in carotenoids, and studies show that they reduce the intensity of sunburn. Bonus: Carotenoids also help maintain eye health and help prevent macular degeneration.
 
Strawberries



Strawberries work twice as they help protect and treat sunburn. High levels of vitamin C are involved in destroying the free radicals that occur when your skin overdoes the sun. They also contain tannins that reduce the pain of sunburn. Careful rubbing of strawberry purée on the burned skin will give you a quick, completely natural relief.
 
Pomegranate



It is loaded with antioxidants, including especially potent ellagic acid, which can protect you from cell damage as a result of exposure to solar UVA and UVB rays. According to a study, the participation of pomegranate extract in sunscreen increases the SPF by 20%.

Tomatoes



Antioxidant Lycopene is the cause of the red color of tomatoes and the fact that they have a beneficial effect on your skin. Especially important is lycopene in processed tomatoes - tomato juice, paste, ketchup. Including it in the diet, you guarantee less damage to DNA from UV rays. It is also believed that lycopene keeps your skin younger.
 
Red peppers



They have the healing properties of tomatoes and carrots to keep the skin beautiful. Thanks to their lycopene and beta-carotene, they help reduce the incidence of sunburn and protect you from UV damage. Green peppers, however, are not an acceptable substitute because they have significantly lower levels of beta carotene.
 
Red grapes



Add grapes to your summer fruit salad to combat sun damage. It contains resveratrol, a type of polyphenol that prevents cell damage that can cause skin cancer, and helps prevent damage from UVB exposure. Green grapes have significantly less resveratrol than red varieties.
 
Flaxseed



Omega-3 fatty acids have many health benefits, one of which is moisturizing your skin to look young and vibrant. You can rub flax oil on your skin or eat raw linseed (heat treatment destroys nutrients). Sprinkle the seeds on yogurt or eat linseed flakes.
 
Spinach



The advantages of spinach are far beyond the power of the Popey sailor who wears. Green fat is the best source of antioxidants lutein and zeaxanthin, which slows the growth of cells caused by ultraviolet light.
 
Salmon



This fish is another big source of Omega-3 fatty acids for whose health benefits we read above.
 
Sunflower seeds



They carry the important vitamin E that helps the body protect against sun damage. Vitamin E helps the scars look less noticeable, so it helps your skin in more than one way!
 
Walnuts



Like salmon, walnuts are high in essential fatty acids, which can protect against sunburn, so anyone who does not like fish can benefit from the consumption of tasty walnuts.
