Guilty. I used to love a good suntan – I was no stranger to tanning booths or baby oil. Now I’m older & wiser so I understand that too much sun can lead to age spots, wrinkles & skin cancer. No thank you.
But is there anything more attractive than a sun-kissed glow? Heck YES there is!
In fact, it’s been scientifically proven that eating fruits and vegetables makes your skin color MORE attractive than a suntan. All compliments of yellow pigments in produce called carotenoids. These pigments actually tint your skin a golden, healthy hue. Aim for >3 cups of produce daily for at least 6 weeks for the best effect.
Boost your attractiveness by eating more orange produce & leafy greens:
Sweet potatoes (add 1/2 cup cooked sweet potato to your smoothie OR make pancakes)
Carrots (make carrot fries: roast for 20 mins @ 425 F)
Collard greens (use as a burrito wrap)
