These veggies supply a hearty helping of beta carotene, and that’s valuable: “Beta carotene is a precursor to vitamin A, a critical nutrient for skin health that also slows skin aging,” says Cynthia Bailey, MD, a dermatologist in Sebastopol, CA. “As an antioxidant, it helps fend off aging for your entire body, too. You get an added bonus because beta carotene warms your complexion, and a beta-carotene-rich glow has been scientifically proven to be more attractive than a suntan.” Carotenoids, such as beta carotene, are best absorbed when paired with healthy-fat foods. So enjoy carrots with eggs in a salad, puree them into a creamy soup with Greek yogurt, or dip them into guacamole. Check out the best anti-aging products for every decade of your life.
