Encouraging healthy eating habits may boost your appearance as well as your health

According to a study undertaken by the University of St. Andrews, people who eat a diet rich in fruits and vegetables, have a healthier skin tone, and are perceived to be more attractive, than those who eat a less healthy diet.
The study took place over a six week timeframe, and participants added three portions of… fruits and vegetables to their diet during that time. Researchers found that the carotenoids in produce added red and yellow tones to participants skin. The study primarily focused on fruits and vegetables high in beta-carotene and lycopene, such as carrots, pumpkins, peppers, and tomatoes. Results suggest that increasing intake to these levels will enhance the color and complexion of facial skin. It’s worth noting that participants whose diets remained unhealthy, became more pale. However, according to the footnotes, juicers won’t see the same benefits as those actually eating their produce.
All 35 of the test subjects were white, and researchers agree more information is necessary to determine whether the same results will apply to non-Caucasians.
