rosstanIf you want to get glowing without using potentially damaging sun beds or fake tan that quite honestly just smells weird and stains everything, then here’s a totally natural way to encourage your skin to bronze-up!

The weather in the UK has been promisingly summery up until the past couple of days, when the skies turned grey, the temperature dropped, and the wind made it feel more like Autumn than Summer.

We can’t always be sure of what the weather is going to be like, and if you’re heading off on holiday soon, there’s no guarantee you’ll be able to escape showing off your pale bits…. Luckily, it’s easy to encourage a natural-looking tan with the help of some simple nutrition.

Consume them regularly in moderation though, as eating too many can cause worse issues than a lack of tan…. Carotenemia is a relatively common condition caused by over-consumption of foods high in beta-carotene. Symptoms include the skin turning yellow or slightly orange, especially on the soles of the feet and the palms. As with all things – everything in moderation! Other foods listed here aid in hydrating the skin and brightening complexion, contain high levels of vitamins E, C and K, and help with improving the skin’s balance of moisture.
