There are some foods that can help protect your skin and soothe sunburn if you do get scorched.
People aren't the only ones who need sun protection -- plants do too. And the compounds that plants make to protect themselves from the sun can also protect us, says Amy Paturel in EatingWell Magazine. One example is carotenoids, found in carrots and dark leafy greens, such as kale. Eating carotenoid-rich foods helps to protect our skin against sunburn, according to Gene Lester, M.S., Ph.D., a plant physiologist with the USDA's Agricultural Research Service.
