Maintenance of Healthy Skin
Yellow corn is a rich source of beta carotene which forms vitamin A that is vital for the maintenance of healthy skin. Vitamin C and lycopene are potential antioxidants that prevent the UV generated free radicals from damaging the skin and increase the production of collagen that assists in the maintenance of smooth skin. Besides being eaten, corn can also be applied topically as corn oil which is a rich source of linoleic acid.
