Express tanning diet

 Fruits for a better suntan

Fruits for a better suntan

Following a diet or other type, it is essential to absorb the sun we had during the spring and summer in the form of tanning. It can be said that the acquisition of one or another type of color, resistance tan on our skin, or keeping it in better or worse shape after months of frequent sun exposure, is determined to a large extent by the diet. At the end of the day, we are what we eat.

So if you want to start enjoying the sun and tan from the first few weeks, we suggest that a diet tanning Express, maintained during the coming summer months will help to keep your tan longer and maintain the health of your skin excellent condition.

As you will see, through this diet, tan may be the best of excuses for eating well:

1. Two carrots a day. Carrots are a natural source of beta carotene, a natural pigment precursor of vitamin A to stimulate pigmentation of the skin. So, two raw carrots (peeled and washed) at midmorning, be our ideal snack to get a perfect tan.

2. Orange and red fruit three times a day. At breakfast, lunch and dinner during the sunny months we will choose to eat fruit orange, red and yellow, as these are the richest in carotenoids. We refer to  mango, peaches, papaya, apricots, cherries, etc.

3. Vegetables, the more the better, also rich in beta-carotene, their contribution in antioxidant vitamins and minerals. Vegetables like spinach, broccoli, spinach, squash, tomatoes, asparagus, green beans and parsley we must take on a regular basis to enhance the tanning of our skin. Two or three tomato gazpacho a week, for example, is a unique and refreshing way to receive these contributions.

4. Vitamin C to protect our skin. As a source of free radicals, the sun can contribute to skin aging, if not “clothe” our cells with an appropriate supply of vitamin C. Peppers and most citrus fruits such as oranges, lemons, grapefruit and kiwis, have significant amounts of vitamin C.

5. Dark chocolate and nuts, rich in magnesium. Cocoa is one of the foods rich in magnesium, a mineral essential to assimilate vitamin C. In addition, it is found in high proportions in nuts such as almonds, walnuts, hazelnuts, sunflower seeds, etc. Some 80 gr a day of any of these nuts at snack along with some chocolate with over 75% cocoa will help us protect our skin from the harmful effects of the sun.

Alongside all this, of course, it is also very important to protect your skin with sunscreen while tanning, plus nourish with moisturizers after long exposures to the sun. It is also important to drink enough water during the hot months to keep our skin in perfect condition.
