2. Tomatoes

We knew that the acids in tomatoes make them ideal for skin scrubs, but eating tomatoes is great for your skin, too, because of the high lycopene content.

Try stuffing tomatoes with beans and rice, dicing them into soups or salads, or in your morning tofu scramble. Tomato paste has an even higher lycopene concentration, so load up your pasta sauces, soups, and stews with lots of tomato paste to make them taste delicious and give them a nutritional boost!
