Anti-Sunburn Foods

According to an article in the May 2010 issue of Better Homes and Gardens, to avoid look like a streamed lobster this summer, don't forget the sunscreen. But also be sure to eat lots of brightly colored fruits and vegetables, recommends Dr. Howard Murad, a dermatologist and founder of the Murad Inclusive Health Medical Group in El Segundo, California.

"With fruits and vegetables you're protecting your skin from the inside," Murad says. "It's easy to remember. Look at a rainbow and eat raw foods of those colors. These foods encourage the body's own response to help heal from sun damage."

Three to four servings a day of apricots, pomegranates, broccoli, and tomatoes boost the immune system and help prevent damage from free radicals caused by sun exposure. Green tea helps, too. Fruits and vegetables also hydrate your skin, making it more resistant to drying out.
