6 Foods You Should Eat
to Protect Your Skin From Harmful UV Rays
Here are some power foods that can give you
added UV protection this summer -
Imagine a young plant sitting in an open
field, baking under a blazing sun. Instead of shriveling in the heat, the
little fruit thrives. Why? Because it's filled with carotenoids and polyphenols, the two classes of powerful
plant-based antioxidants whose primary function is to
protect chlorophyll from photo damage (i.e. they keep fruits and vegetables
from getting sunburned).
As it turns out, these antioxidants do the
same for your skin. All red fruits and vegetables, including peppers,
papaya, guava and watermelon contain the antioxidant lycopene.
Tomatoes particularly contain most amount of it, especially when it is being
cooked as it helps release lycopene from the cells. In fact, research
shows that the body absorbs four times more lycopene from tomato paste than
from raw tomatoes. And since lycopene is a fat soluble nutrient, mixing
cooked tomatoes with a natural fat helps the intestines absorb it even more.
2. Green Tea
Research shows that green tea can protect the
skin from sun burn and skin cancer after exposure to UV light. One recent study
showed that applying green tea directly to the skin 30 minutes
before UV exposure greatly reduced the resulting sun tan/ burn and DNA damage
caused by UVB (burning) rays. In yet another study, participants were given
250mg of green tea polyphenols twice a day (1 cup of green tea has between 50-
100 mg of polyphenols). Six months later they reported significant improvement
in overall sun damage, redness and broken capillary veins,
suggesting that green tea can actually reverse sun damage. So now you have a
reason to order unsweetened green tea at your favourite cafe.
It's not just fruits and veggies that have
free radicals fighting potential. Eggs, especially organic eggs, contain high
concentration of antioxidants too. In a German study, researchers found that
the concentration of carotenoids in the skin increased 20% after
just one week of eating two organic eggs per day. So go on and scramble
an egg with tomatoes and olive oil and enjoy!
Here's another reason to eat chocolates! Researchers have found that cocoa
with high concentration of flavonoids - the type of antioxidant found in cocoa
beans - can protect the skin from sunburn and other signs of sun damage. Now
that does not mean you can gorge on any and every type of chocolate. Chocolate is measured by the amount
of raw cocoa it contains: the higher the
percentage of raw cocoa, the greater the antioxidant quality. Choose the
highest cocoa percentage you can. My personal favourite is the 70% dark chocolate. A point to note: since
chocolate is relatively high in calories and fat, limit yourself to about 100
calories from it in a day.
5. Red Wine
Red wine has polyphenol antioxidants, which
protects you from UV damage. According to a recent research, red wine can
protect you from sun burn even after you have spent a day out on the
beach. Polyphenols are concentrated in the skin of
the grapes, this is also why red wine which is fermented along with the skin,
has more antioxidants than white wine.
6. Fish and Fish Oils
Research shows that fish oils can boost the
skin's natural immune system and ability to fight off cancer as well as reduce
inflammation, the contributing factor in sunburn and sun related rashes. In a
recent study, participants who took 3g of mixed omega fatty acids per day, more than doubled
their body's natural SPF after six months. Flaxseeds are one of the best
sources of omega-3 fatty acids; vegetarians could include flaxseeds to get this
