Protect skin from Sun Damage--Eat lots of anti-oxidant rich foods.

Routine consumption of all kinds of anti-oxidant rich foods:

lycopene (cooked tomatoes and some pink/red fruits like watermelon, pink guava)
Green tea -  which can also be applied topically. Make a green tea/ACV toner.
Linoleic acid- use a quality oil for a moisturizer or for oil cleansing.
Cacao - cocoa, dark chocolate
Proanthocyanids found in purple/black berries, fruits, tea, cocoa, purple cabbage and purple onions.

The best sun blocks include zinc and clothing. 

After sun exposure, you can apply a source of vitamin C, green tea, aloe vera.
