In the winter, many women long for bronzed skin but fear that they won’t be able to achieve a healthy glow until the summer rolls around. However, according to a new study, ladies can achieve a golden complexion year-round by eating specific foods, the Daily Mail reports.
“Most people in the West think that the best way to improve your skin color is to get a suntan. But our research shows that eating lots of fruit and vegetables is actually more effective,” lead researcher Dr. Ian Stephen told the news source.
Researchers studied the correlation between people’s skin color and their diet. According to the news outlet, the study found that those who ate more fruits and vegetables had a more golden skin tone due to higher levels of carotenoids, antioxidants found in red peppers, spinach and apricots.
However, even those who eat a diet rich in antioxidants may benefit from a bit of cosmetic help in the dreary winter months. A lightweight tanning lotion, like GloMinerals gloBody Bronzer, will give skin a natural-looking, healthy glow without appearing streaky or painted on.
