Beta carotene: They are a good source of vitamin A, beta carotene, which helps prevent blindness. They are also high in fiber. Vitamin A and antioxidants protect the skin from sun damage. Deficiencies of vitamin A cause dryness to the skin, hair, and nails. Vitamin A also prevents premature wrinkling, acne, dry skin, pigmentation, blemishes, and uneven skin tone
