It’s time for you to radiate(!), so let’s dish about how to get your glow back.
University of Nottingham conducted research that claims eating vegetables makes you more attractive. Heyo! (I’ll be shoveling in handfuls of kale until I see Halle Barry in my reflection.)
Specifically, eating carrots and tomatoes (full of carotenoids) will make you look better than a killer tan would. Additionally, beta-carotene in veggies converts to Vitamin A which prevents cell damage and premature aging. ”Eating five more portions [of fruit and veg] ups your carotenoid levels giving your skin golden tones.” Based on this claim, for two months, students ate 5 extra portions of fruits and vegetables a day and found their skin pigmentation changed for the better.
To add some extra awesome to your beautiful-skin diet, nuts are high in antioxidants and Vitamin E which fights skin-aging free radicals and helps to hold in moisture. While, citrus fruits contain Vitamin C which aids in the production of collagen, tightening the structure of your skin. Check out my favorite foods for a fabulous glow.
