Healthier and Better Looking Than a Suntan!

A healthy diet and a healthy cir­cu­la­to­ry sys­tem can give your face a healthy glow that looks bet­ter than a sun­tan. When you eat plen­ty of dark leafy green and dark yel­low or orange veg­eta­bles, their col­or­ful carotene pig­ments tend to build up in your skin. Not only do these nat­ur­al antiox­i­dants help to pro­tect your skin from sun dam­age, they give you a gold­en glow that is more attrac­tive than an ordi­nary sun­tan. The bright red col­or of oxy­genat­ed blood flow­ing through your skin also adds a healthy-look­ing rosy glow.

Sci­en­tists have found that a mild case of caroteno­sis actu­al­ly makes a light-skinned per­son look health­i­er and more attrac­tive.  A sci­en­tif­ic study found that this gold­en glow is more attrac­tive than an ordi­nary sun­tan.

You can also get a slight­ly orange blush if you drink huge amounts of toma­to juice, which con­tains the red pig­ment lycopene. Like caroteno­sis, this con­di­tion is harm­less and will go away by itself.

A healthy cir­cu­la­to­ry sys­tem also gives your skin a healthy glow. As you’ve prob­a­bly noticed, peo­ple who have ane­mia or a cir­cu­la­to­ry prob­lem typ­i­cal­ly have an unat­trac­tive pale or blue-gray com­plex­ion. In some­one with healthy cir­cu­la­tion, the bright red col­or of oxy­genat­ed blood shines through the skin to pro­duce a healthy glow. It’s all the more rea­son to eat a low-fat, high-fiber diet and get plen­ty of exer­cise!

The effects of carotene and blood cir­cu­la­tion are more obvi­ous in a light-skinned per­son. How­ev­er, a healthy diet and exer­cise are no less impor­tant for the health and appear­ance of a dark-skinned per­son!
