Carrots, like sweet potatoes, are high in beta carotene, an antioxidant that is converted to vitamin A inside the body. It helps repair skin tissue and protects it against the harsh rays of the sun. Carrots help the skin retain a youthful suppleness and glow.

Here is a fun recipe for you to try:

While tomatoes work miracles when applied directly to the skin (in the form of masks, etc), consuming tomatoes everyday will build your body’s immunity and help promote healthy, glowing skin in the long-term.

Here is a fun recipe for you to try.
