Eat Your Way to Your Summer Tan!

Tanning beds and tanning oil? Who needs them! Not when fruits and veggies and other carotenoid-rich foods can potentially be your new tanning remedy.  I recently discovered in Food Network’s Magazine, that by eating five daily servings of these tanning substances…you can appear to have tanner skin without any of the horrible skin cancer risks or wrinkling side effects! Foods like carrots, cantaloupes, apricots, and sweet potatoes may actually make you appear tanner. Not to mention, your tummy and legs will be grateful for the nutritious foods you are providing your body. So while your mother is pestering you because it looks like you’ve been spending too much time in the sun without sunscreen, you can just let her know you were eating healthy foods! Imagine that.

Any other tips to avoid the harsh damaging side effects of the sun?
