How You Could Get More Attractive After Eating Fruits And Vegetables

An apple a day keeps ... bad skin away? By now the world knows that fruits and vegetables are key for living a healthier life, but it is still not common knowledge that these foods can cause supple and shimmering skin, yielding a more attractive appearance. Most vegetables and fruits contain anti-aging properties, including skin-enhancing vitamins and potent antioxidants, which fight free radicals and assist in maintaining healthy, gorgeous skin (per Allure). According to the Health Site, your skin becomes more radiant and less wrinkly by increasing your intake of antioxidants, which can be found in beetroot, spinach, berries, and apples.

A powerhouse ingredient in fruits and vegetables is vitamin C, which is needed for collagen production as collagen has been shown to generate smoother, firmer, and more supple skin (via Medical News Today). Vitamin C is commonly found in topical skin creams, but increasing your vitamin C by way of eating more citrus fruits and sweet potatoes will help emanate a glow from the inside out.

The science behind eating for more attractive skin

According to WebMD, studies show that fruits and vegetables can improve your skin tone, making you more attractive. One Scottish study suggests that an increase of only one serving of fruit and vegetables a day resulted in healthier and rosier-looking skin. According to Healthline, a Japanese study of more than 700 women found eating more avocados was related to more supple, taut skin, and in other research, avocados have been shown to contain ingredients that may help shield skin from sun damage. 

study in which dermatologists observed and examined over 4,000 women concluded that those eating foods containing lots of vitamin C, like bell peppers, had a lowered chance of fine lines and dry skin as they matured, per Healthline. Science also shows that ingredients in fruits and vegetables, like alpha hydroxy acid in strawberries and beta carotene in carrots, can be beneficial for the skin by reducing hyperpigmentation and providing a healthy glow. The next time you enjoy that avocado toast, spinach salad, or berry smoothie, remember, you're eating your way to your most attractive self.
