#smoother skin

Studies have shown that lycopene, a powerful antioxidant, found mostly in tomatoes, can help prevent sun damage. By topping tomatoes with olive oil, which contains healthy fats, allows the lycopene to be better absorbed by your body. People who take in more olive oil are less likely to have wrinkles, possibly because it protects against the oxidative stress that causes skin to age. So enjoy a Caprese salad for lunch today or slow roast plum tomatoes in olive oil for dinner!
