The Ben Ish Chai Shanah Beis parshas Pinchas 13 cites from the gemara in Berachos 20a what pesukim to say to save oneself from ayin harah. He then lists other pesukim as well. See there for the lists of pesukim. Lastly, he cites the custom cites earlier by the Chidah to say Chamsah and make a palm shaped wood piece with the letter of Hashem.
