Foods that beautify the skin from the inside are better than cosmetics

Regularly adding these foods to your meals is a simple way to protect your body from the effects of the sun.

Citrus fruits

Citrus fruits such as oranges, lemons... contain a lot of vitamin C, which helps to whiten and protect the skin from sunburn and the formation of pigments on the skin that cause melasma and freckles.


Carrots are rich in beta-carotene that helps protect the skin from the negative effects of UV rays found in the sun. A 2007 synthetic analysis showed that beta-carotene will exert its natural sun protection effect after 10 weeks of regular supplementation.


Pomegranate is a fruit rich in antioxidants and ellagic acid that protects the skin from UVA and UVB rays found in the sun. In particular, this fruit also increases the skin protection effect of sunscreen by 20%.


Strawberries are rich in antioxidants, vitamin C should be considered as one of the best natural sunscreen foods. These substances help protect the skin from free radical damage caused by the sun and give the skin a healthier glow.


Watermelon contains lycopene which has antioxidant effects. This substance absorbs both UVA and UVB radiation in sunlight. Of course, eating watermelon cannot provide immediate skin protection. However, after a few weeks of regularly eating watermelon, the lycopene can come into play as a sunscreen.


When it comes to vegetables and fruits, broccoli always tops the list of foods rich in powerful antioxidants. It works to help fight oxidative stress from free radicals. In addition, broccoli is also a natural sunscreen because it contains histidine. This is an alpha-amino acid that stimulates the production of urocanic acid, which absorbs UV radiation.


Not only is a fruit containing a great source of nutrients, papaya also has great uses to help protect the skin under the sun and beautify the skin. Papaya contains a large amount of vitamin C, which is a fruit that both helps protect against sunlight and effectively whitens skin. Vitamin C present in papaya helps fight the damage of the sun to the skin and reverses the signs of skin aging.


Walnuts, chia seeds, flax seeds... all contain omega-3 fatty acids that are good for the skin. Our bodies cannot make omega-3s on their own, so we need to get them from food. Omega-3s have anti-inflammatory effects, fight the effects of the sun, help maintain the integrity of the skin.

Red bell pepper

As we all know, vitamin C helps create a rich source of collagen against wrinkles. Red bell peppers contain more vitamin C than oranges or lemons, and less sugar (sugar can cause skin inflammation).
