Did you know that certain foods can actually boost your defenses against skin cancer and help keep your skin looking younger? We found this list of six foods to try on Yahoo!
A cup of strawberries delivers about 150 percent of the daily recommended amount of vitamin C. Eating more vitamin-C-rich foods may help to ward off wrinkles and age-related dryness.
Tomatoes may help to keep your skin smooth. Consuming more lycopene also protects your skin from sunburn, too. You can also get lycopene from pink grapefruit, carrots, watermelon, guava and red peppers.
Tofu-and other soyfoods, such as edamame and soymilk -- may help to preserve skin-firming collagen because it's rich in isoflavones. Researchers also believe that isoflavones help prevent collagen breakdown.
Tuna-and other omega-3-rich fish, such as salmon and sardines-may help keep your skin looking youthful and prevent skin cancer. Aim to eat two servings of fatty fish each week: not only are the omega-3s good for your skin, they're good for your heart too.
Drinking a single cup of coffee daily may lower your risk of developing skin cancer. Decaf didn't seem to offer the same protection.
This one may be the most surprising of all, since some people say chocolate gives you acne. Turns out studies have shown there is no connection between chocolate and skin problems, and that some types of chocolate, in fact, may even be good for your skin. Cocoa contains a type of flavonoid that increases blood flow to the skin, boosting nutrient and oxygen supply.
