10 Foods to Eat to Have a Perfect Tan

By  | 

Have you ever wondered how some people who don’t go to beauty salons to get their spray tans or lie in sun beds have a great tan all year round? You’ve probably thought that they have their genes to thank or that they’re lying to you and fake tanning, but that doesn’t have to be the case. You can actually have a perfect tan without spending hours lying in your swimsuit. There are some foods that help your skin take the most out of the sun, and there are some that will help you get a great tan without even sunbathing. What you eat and drink has a lot to do with the quality and color of your skin. Trying to catch some color in the sun can have serious health consequences, if you overdo it. On the other hand, eating foods rich in carotenoid will give you the color you want without damaging the quality of your skin- in fact they will slow down the aging process and prevent skin damage. Here are the best foods you can eat for a gorgeous skin color.


1. Carrots

Skin color is plays an important part in a person’s level of attractiveness, but nobody likes damaged, dry skin. Carrots are among the healthiest foods out there, and due to their rich carotenoid content, they contribute to your skin becoming more tanned regardless of whether you’ve been sun tanning or not. Carrots will also make you look healthier- and the healthier you look, the more attractive you will be to the opposite sex.

A study published in the Quarterly Journal of Experimental Psychology found that high carotene face (or the skin which became tanned thanks to the high content of ‘tanning vegetables’) was considered more attractive than sun tanned face 75 percent of the time. If you’re wondering how to use carrots to have a gorgeous tan, a couple of servings per day in the course of a few weeks will be enough to make your skin darker and more glowing.
