It is common knowledge that the first step to skin care is to have a healthy balanced diet. But did you know that eating the right things helps reduce the chance of a sunburn or tan?

Dermatologists agree that this is possible. While it`s a good idea to always apply sunscreen lotions or creams, or warding off the sun with sunglasses, a hat or scarf, our diet can also help us protect our skin and prepare it to face the harsh rays without causing damage. Research shows that certain nutrients found in certain foods can act as a type of sun shield from within and help protect one`s skin from the UV rays of the sun, says Dr. Varun Katyal.

Indeed, food items like citrus fruits, green leafy vegetables, almonds, coconut water etc develop the immunity of your skin cells from within, and this increased immunity helps it fight the harsh effects of the sun, thus saving you from burns and tans. Application of sunscreen lotions can only help you in case of on-the-surface burns but if you want to face the sun and fight it, opt for these food items, agrees another doctor.
