Did you know some foods can actually prevent sunburns and provide natural sunscreen properties? For redheads, this can be life changing news. It’s time to get prepared for those beach days and glisten like a Hollywood star in the sun with the right sun protection* too, of course!
“New research suggests that certain types of foods and antioxidants may successfully help the body to fight against sunburn,” says Dr. Jennifer A. Gardner, board certified pediatrician, mom, and founder of Healthy Kids Company. “Beta-carotene – an antioxidant found in leafy vegetables, carrots, red peppers and yellow fruits such as mangos, melons and apricots – has proven effective.”
Gardner walked us through the top foods redheads should be eating to protect their fair skin and said, “If you’re looking for foods packed with SPF, think about foods rich inlycopenes, an antioxidant with natural sun screen and anti-aging properties properties.”
Rock it like a Redhead!
