Eat a Square of Chocolate a Day to Keep Sunburns Away!

If you’re heading outdoors this summer, don’t forget to pack a bar of chocolate to help protect against sun damage.

Yes, you read that correctly: Chocolate, as well as other foods like tomatoes and green tea, can help prevent skin damage, say experts.

“Cocoa or dark chocolate contains four times as much phenols and catechins as tea. These antioxidants protect our skin from sunburn and skin cancer,” says Frank Lipman, MD, founder of Eleven Eleven Wellness Center, who recommends two ounces of dark chocolate daily.
