If you follow a healthy diet, you won’t have to spend much time in the sun trying to acquire a beautiful bronze shade of the skin. Scientists discovered that adopting a healthy diet produces a marked influence on the color of your skin. Even a month of eating the right kind of vegetables and fruits will give your face a fresher look. And you can get a beautiful even suntan after a little while in the sun.
According to Dr. Ian Stephen of University of Bristol the secret of a perfect face color lies in natural chemical substances called carotenoids. It is a group consisting of about 600 organic pigments that can be found in many plants. Nowadays a lot of people opt for acquiring a bronze hue from the right kind of diet rather than becoming dark in the sun, taking into account the facts that too much sun on your skin makes it age quicker and boosts the cancer risk.
What fruits and vegetables contribute to a beautiful skin color? Scientists agree that you should go for such fruits as melons, watermelons, peaches and apricots and such vegetables as pepper, carrot and spinach. These fruits and vegetables make your skin more resilient and attractive-looking.
