Is that what we eat can affect the color of the skin? Yes.
A diet rich in beta-carotene causes its storing in the skin, which makes the skin temporarily more resistant to harmful rays and makes the skin slightly tan. Additionally, vitamin A, the component of beta carotene, is an antioxidant (protects against harmful free radicals) and is essential for good condition of the skin, hair and nails.
If you want your skin looks like a sun-kissed, eat daily orange and red vegetables and fruits. The biggest portion of beta-carotene is in carrots, pumpkins, tomatoes, apricots, peaches, mango, melons, peppers and in the green ones as spinach, lettuce, cabbage, broccoli, kale, chicory, beet leaves, dill and parsley.
