Niki said the reason is the lycopene found in tomatoes. Lycopene is an antioxidant compound that give tomatoes and other fruits their distinctive colors (red, orange, and yellow). It not only helps prevent prostate cancer, but it also nourishes your skin.

Well-known for her delicate skin, Niki said she drinks a glass of tomato juice every morning to whiten and smooth her skin.
