This Surprising (and Tasty) Food Can Protect Your Skin from Sun Damage

A study published by the National Institutes of Health suggests that probiotics, like the ones in yogurt and some frozen yogurts, might help protect skin from sun damage. Yogurt is also a popular home remedy that may help reduce the healing time of a sunburn.

It’s no substitute for sunscreen, of course—but the next time you’re headed to the shore, treat yourself to a fro-yo before you hit the sand. It’s for your health.
