Glowing Skin

Beta-Carotene/Vitamin A + Fat = Glowing Skin





Move over, antiaging creams: Beta-carotene—which needs fat for absorption and is turned into vitamin A in your body—helps give your skin a youthful glow.
Vitamin A also plays a vital role in a healthy immune and reproductive system. But it needs the good fat to help your body absorb it.

 Good Sources of Beta-Carotene:

Carrots, apricots, cantaloupe, sweet potato, papaya, kale, spinach

Good Sources of Fat:

Nuts—any kind, including walnuts, almonds, peanuts; oils including olive, almond, canola, flaxseed, toasted sesame, avocado

Combo Ideas • Oven-roasted sweet potato fries made with olive or canola oil
                      • Carrots dipped in guacamole or hummus (made with sesame-based tahini and/or olive oil)
                      • Trail mix made with dried apricots, dried papaya, almonds and walnuts
