You keep your skin looking good with nourishing moisturizer and protective sunscreen. You can also build healthy skin from the inside out by packing your diet with lots of skin-saving nutrients. Sweet and delicious, mangoes are an excellent source of beta carotene, which is converted to vitamin A in the body, says Keri Gans, R.D., a spokesperson for the American Dietetic Association. “Vitamin A is necessary to maintain healthy skin and repair skin tissue--without adequate amounts of it your skin will be dry and flaky.” Vitamin A may also reduce skin inflammation after exposure to sunlight.

Other sources of beta carotene: Carrots, pumpkin, sweet potatoes, apricots
