Now here is a reason to put your money where your mouth is…
We have heard that eating well will improve your skin but this angle I read at healthzone.ca today was new to me – it will make it glow.
Researchers asked participants to rate pictures of the same person manipulated to show their natural skin tone, with a tan and when they had eaten a good amount of carotenoids, a pigment found in vegetables and fruit. Consistently, the participants picked the later.
“They found that just one or two more portions of fruits and vegetables a day resulted in a subtle shift toward the more healthy yellowish tone of carotenoid consumption.”

Eating more vegetables and fruit has a host of benefits; here is one more to add – an appealing, healthy looking skin tone.
Hugs and blessings,
