Vitamins A and C are in bell peppers. A red bell pepper contains 170 percent of our daily vitamin C consumption.
Vitamin C helps produce collagen, a skin-building component. Dip them in hummus or tzatziki for a satisfying, high-volume snack.
Broccoli has more vitamin C than oranges per half-cup. Zinc and lutein in broccoli promote healthy skin.
Zinc is an antioxidant that heals sun-damaged skin. Lutein, a carotenoid like Vitamin A, increases skin suppleness and protects against UV damage.
Tomatoes are rich in vitamin C and lycopene. Tomatoes, canned or fresh, contain this skin-friendly vitamin.
Cooked tomatoes produce more lycopene, which has skin health benefits. Lycopene helps reverse skin damage and smooth out textural changes over time.
This vegetable is rich of skin-healthy antioxidants and vitamins. Purple cabbage includes Vitamins A, C, and anthocyanins, which may repair sun-damaged skin.
