Why is Fruit Sexy?

1

Antioxidant-rich fruits make skin glow, boost attractiveness.

I bet you’ve never had a pimple in your entire life, huh?” says my co-worker, Michelle. Of course — I have — but truthfully, I don’t remember the last time.

Just Delightful!

If you’ve ever had a zit, if your skin has been too pale to party, or if you’ve ever wondered the secret to good skin — it has nothing to do with sun from tropical beaches.

Could it be that the orange colored carotenes found in fruits boost your physical attractiveness?

Researchers say Yes: Participants rated the rosiest colored faces as healthiest and most attractive.

The preference for more golden or ‘yellow-toned’ skin as healthier might be explained by the ‘carotenoid pigments‘ that we get from the fruit and vegetables in our diet.

Carotenoids:

  • Orange, yellow, and red pigments found in fruits and vegetables
  • Powerful antioxidants
  • Soak up dangerous compounds in body
  • Awesome immunity boosters
  • Help your skin…G-L-O-W!

It’s about what you eat, not how much you eat

So enjoy the fruits of your labor, for rosy skin and a happy whim.

And did I mention that Grapefruits are in season?
