They also contain vitamin C (which isn't compromised in the cooking process) which promotes collagen production.



They aren't just good for your eyes, carrots also contain beta-carotene which reduces skin inflammation. This means that incorporating carrots and carrot juice into your diet will help with skin conditions such as rashes and psoriasis.


Salmon is rich in omega 3 fatty acids which have amazing benefits for the skin. one of these is it helps to calm inflammation, which can lead to a breakdown of collagen and elastin, both of which keep skin looking youthful.
