Health and Beauty Benefits of Tomatoes.

For example, tomatoes are high in lycopene and beta-carotene helps to defend the skin from UV damage, such as wrinkles, age spots, and fine lines. Cooking tomatoes actually increase lycopene absorption. In addition, tomatoes also are high in potassium, which helps to keep your electrolytes in balance.
