Carotenoids can increase protection against free-radical damage from sun exposure, especially when combined with vitamin E.
Vitamins C and E can reduce the sunburn reaction to ultraviolet-B radiation, and keep the skin hydrated and fair.
Fruits and vegetables that are rich with those nutrients：
Almonds have vitamin E, omega-3 fats, protein, calcium and zinc, and other nutrients to keep skin looking healthy.
Carrots are one of the best food sources for carotene, and they also contain vitamin C and other nutrients.
Sweet potatoes, tomatoes, carrots, spinach and pumpkin are great sources for carotenoids. In fact, dark-colored foods, such as orange-colored fruits and vegetables, are often rich in carotenoids.
Broccoli is rich in vitamin C, carotenoids, and dietary fiber.
Soybeans have a lot of vitamin E.
Kiwi fruit and lemon have a lot of vitamin C.
