Foods To Soothe Your Sunburn

Posted: Updated:

By Kerri-Ann Jennings, Associate Nutrition Editor for EatingWellMagazine

I try to slather on the sunscreen year-round (after all, UV rays shine on gray days too), but in the summer I'm particularly careful to avoid getting burned. And when I read that the FDA recently passed more stringent regulations on sunscreen labeling, as well as reminders to take other precautions to avoid sunburn (hats, staying out of the midday sun), I started thinking about what else I could do to protect my skin. As a registered dietitian and associate nutrition editor for EatingWell Magazine, I know that there are some foods that can help protect your skin and soothe sunburn if you do get scorched.
