Carrots
Who would've thought that carrots would be so great for pimples? Carrots are packed with vitamin A, which is good for clearing up breakouts.

Tomatoes
They're amazing in pasta and salads and are also great for your skin. These round little beauties are full of a chemical called lycopene, which are the photochemicals that makes it red. What it means to you is that it helps eliminate skin-aging free
radicals caused by UV rays.

A healthy diet is great for more than just your skin, so be sure to maintain a healthy diet and drink plenty of water because ultimately hydration is your greatest friend for flawless skin.
