4. Sweet potatoes
Did you know that sweet potatoes consumption help lock in moisture, giving your skin a healthy glow and protect it from damage thanks to their abundance of vitamin A? Other excellent sources of vitamin A include kale, carrots, spinach, and fruits such as mango, papaya, and cantaloupe.
“Vitamin A can help with skin renewal and decrease dry, flaky skin. Sweet potatoes are a great option in the winter,” says Dr. Jennifer Lee, Board-certified Dermatologist, Medical Director REN Dermatology, and USANA Consultant.
In fact, Alpert also recommends sweet potatoes to her clients because, aside from their nutritional and aesthetic benefits, their high vitamin C content helps fight off common colds. And, fortunately, sweet potatoes are a versatile root vegetable that can be easily prepared in a variety of ways.
