iVillage.com: 7 Foods for Healthy Skin

13 of 15

Tomato Sauce

Tomato sauce is a concentrated source of lycopene. This antioxidant helps the skin protect itself from ultraviolet light. One study found that people who ate five tablespoons of tomato paste (an ingredient in tomato sauce) every day for 12 weeks had 33 percent more protection against sunburn than those who didn’t.

Best bet: To promote good heart health, look for low-sodium brands.

Try this: For a quick, easy, lycopene-rich pasta sauce, sauté garlic and onions in olive oil. Add oregano and basil (dried or fresh), tomato paste, and enough water to give the sauce the consistency you like. Simmer for 10 minutes and serve over pasta.

Other sources of lycopene: Tomato juice, ketchup
