Five Skin Superfoods For Gorgeous Bronzed Skin

Winter means two things ~ 1) It's freezing so no more bikinis for a while, and 2) no more tanned glowy bronzed skin (Sob! Pass the fake tan ASAP!).  But what if I told you that you can eat your way to a naturally golden glow? Winter is all about prepping and recharging the skin, and getting it ready for the warmer months ahead. And there's nothing better than stocking up on the foods that give the skin that fabulous radiant bronzed look and help with pigmentation and freckles. To keep your skin looking amazing and get that Victoria's Secret model-worthy glow, choose fruits and vegetables that contain beta-carotene or carotenoids. And here are my top picks for maintaining your tan during the colder months.

CARROTS ~ Carrots are your highest source of beta-carotene. Think of it this way: A carrot a day keeps pale skin away. And that's a fact.

SWEET POTATOES & PUMPKIN ~ You need these vegetable in your diet! They are full of beta-carotene and Vitamin A, which is amazing for the production of melanin and helps maintain your natural radiance.

LEMONS ~ Another great source of Vitamin A, lemons really do help you achieve a naturally gorgeous glow. Try kick starting your day with a warm lemon drink, which not only helps with your complexion, it will also flush out any toxins from the body. (I mix the juice of half a lemon, 1 tsp of honey and boiling water together in a glass.) Winner.

SPINACH & KALE ~ These leafy greens are packed with antioxidants and beta-carotene. Mix into salads and smoothies. Love!

APRICOTS ~ Rich in carotenoids, apricots really turn drab grey skin into a healthy radiant colour. Keep a packet of dried apricots in your bag for a great snack. Yummm!
Winter can be a real stinker, but with these five fab superfoods, your skin will always look perfectly tanned and bronzed no matter how miserable the weather.
