Tomatoes are very rich in lycopene, an antioxidant that has been shown to greatly reduce the redness that results from sun exposure. In one study, people that consumed tomato paste daily showed an average of 40% less redness than the control group. Another study of 40-50 year old’s showed that people with higher skin lycopene levels also had smoother skin.
