You Can Get A Better-Looking Tan With Food, Study Shows

You can get a more attractive glow from the right foods than you can from sun bathing, according to a study by Dr. Ian Stephen at the University of Nottingham in the UK .

The study found that peo­ple who ate a lot of fruit and veg­eta­bles per day have a more golden skin tone, due to the carotenoids in the food. Carotenoids are antiox­i­dants that are respon­si­ble for the red, orange, green, and yel­low col­or­ing in fruit and veg­eta­bles. “We found that, given the choice between skin colour caused by sun­tan and skin colour caused by carotenoids, peo­ple pre­ferred the carotenoid skin colour, so if you want a health­ier and more attrac­tive skin colour, you are bet­ter off eat­ing a healthy diet with plenty of fruit and veg­eta­bles than lying in the sun.” said Dr. Stephen.

    These wonderful products are the best thing I have done for myself in a very long time! If you could even read the miniscule print on cosmetics over-the-counter, you probably wouldn’t by it. There is no guessing here-all natural. You can’t beat the quality of these products. Buy, use and wait for the compliments. Your skin will thrive & glow on natural organics provided b Gaelle!
