We all know sun protection is key to protecting your skin, but new research indicates your diet can also make a difference.

A diet rich in vitamin A may reduce your skin-cancer risk, according to a study published in JAMA Dermatology. Brown University researchers analyzed data from 75,170 U.S. women and 48,400 U.S. men and found that, after controlling for other factors, participants whose diets were high in vitamin A—from food versus supplements—were 17 percent less likely to develop skin cancer than people with low vitamin A intake. Vitamin A–loaded foods include sweet potatoes, carrots, leafy greens, apricots and cantaloupe.
