Fruit and veg 'boosts attractiveness'

8th March 2012

Researchers from the University of St Andrews have claimed that eating five portions of fruit and vegetables a day can give your skin a golden glow and make you appear more attractive.

Their study showed that yellow-red pigments which give carrots, tomatoes and mangoes their colour can also alter the hue of human skin when absorbed by fat deposits in the skin. The researchers found that eating just two additional portions of fruit and vegetables per day was enough to create a noticeable change in skin colour within six weeks.
