No: Avoiding exposure to sun, and tanning booths, is important in preventing skin cancer. If you have any suspicious lesions, see your doctor asap. While vitamins are important for normal health, there are no specific ones that will "help" skin cancer.

Focus on sunblock : A diet rich in fruits and vegetables along w a multi-vitamin is a good idea, but to protect yourself from skin cancer focus on protecting yourself from sun exposure w sunblock and appropriate clothing.
Dr. Travis Kidner
Surgical Oncology 17 years experience
No clear evidence: There is no clear evidence to support the use of vitamins to help skin cancer.
