- Sweet Potato
According to the American Academy of Dermatology, retinol – a topical form of Vitamin A, can help heal acne scars and reduce inflammation. When applied externally, some people complain that retinol is too strong for their skin. Getting one’s quota of vitamin A internally is still possible by eating orange sweet potatoes – a rich source of vitamin A. The orange colour of the root is due to its high beta carotene content.
Serve …simply steamed or baked with olive oil and aromatic herbs like thyme or rosemary
