DIET AND PROTECTING YOUR SKIN FORM THE SUN

We all know about sunscreens and their benefits to protecting our skin from the harmful effects of sun damage.  But now there are foods we can eat that will protect our skin form the inside out.  These foods can help thwart the harmful effects of UVA rays.

Three of these foods are carrots, tomatoes and onions.  Carrots have Vitamin A & C.  Tomatoes have lycopene.  Onions help our liver function and immune system.  Two other healthy foods are spinach and kale.  The famous cartoon character knew what he was talking about.  For those with a sweet tooth try apples and berries.

Apples have an antioxidant called quercetin.  The berries are a good source of Vitamin C.  And if you’re thirsty try some green tea.  So between these foods and some good sunblock – you can play 36 holes of golf.
