FOODS THAT FIGHT AGING
Reddish-orange foods like tomato and watermelon, which are rich in beta-carotene and lycopene, increase your protection against harmful UV rays from the inside out.

In one French study, the dueling duo helped improve markers of skin defense against UV rays by as much as 20 percent. V8 juice is a source of both nutrients—just make yours the low-sodium version; why risk bloating from heavy salt intake?
