Fruit, not sun, for healthy glow

17th November 2009

Scientists at St Andrews University have suggested that the "glow" attained by eating healthy food is the most appealing look for Caucasian people.

The researchers allowed participants to adjust images in order to make people look healthier and found that they chose a yellow tinge to make skin appear healthy.

Professor David Perrett, head of the perception lab at St Andrews University, said: "What we eat and not just how much we eat appears to be important for a healthy appearance. The only natural way in which we can make our skin lighter and more yellow is to eat a more healthy diet high in fruit and vegetables."
