Tomatoes & Olive Oil For A Smoother Skin!

Tomatoes are rich in lycopene, a powerful anti oxidant that can also help prevent sun damage.
For supple skin, eat them with coated olive oil. This allows lycopene to be better absorbed by your body.

Olive oil has also its own skin-saving secrets. People who take more olive oil are less likely to have wrinkles, possibly because it protects against the oxidative stress that causes skin to age.

These two pairs are destined to be eaten together in Italian dishes such as bruschetta or Caprese salad.
You can get more of that beauty bang as well by slow-roasting plum tomatoes in olive oil at 225F for 3 hours. The heating helps release more lycopene.
