Fruit face: “Fruit And Vegetables Give Skin A Healthy Glow”
I get feeds from the Huffington Post and it is really overwhelming as they have so many specific channels broadcasting from around the world. Here is one from the UK. God, I must be attractive.
As well as keeping you healthy, eating your five-a-day will give your skin a golden glow and make you appear more attractive too, according to a new study.
As well as keeping you healthy, eating your five-a-day will will give your skin a golden glow and make you appear more attractive too, according to a new study.
Researchers at the University of St Andrews found that eating two more portions of fruit and vegetables a day for just six weeks made a visible difference to the skin's natural hue.
The study, published in PLoS One journal, monitored the fruit and vegetable intake of 35 participants over a six-week period.
Using an instrument to analyse their skin tone before and after the test period, the researchers found that increased fruit and vegetable consumption led to a deepening of natural red and yellow skin colouration.
Earlier research by the team had found even subtle changes in these skin tones led to a greater perceived attractiveness of the faces.
Giving credence to the old wives' tale that eating too many carrots will turn you orange, previous research has found that carotenoids, the red and yellow pigments found in brightly coloured fruit and vegetables, can have an effect on the colour of the skin.”
