Eat Your Way To A Natural Tan, All That Glitters Is Not Gold, And More…

-------


With tan bans, tan taxes, and general anxiety over the damaging effects of UV rays, it’s easy to swear off the idea of a sun-kissed glow. But what if you could eat your way to bronzed skin with orange and green produce? According to a new study, adding more carotenoid-rich fruits and vegetables, like cantaloupe, apricots, carrots, peppers, and spinach, to your diet can impart the look of a perfect tan from the inside out. If you’ve been looking for a good reason to shell out for that professional-grade juicer, you’re welcome. [NYDN]

 
If you do choose to venture out into the sun, Consumer Reports has just published a list of its best sunscreen bets, so read closely. These lotions not only boast very good UVA/UVB protection, but they met their SPF claims even after treated skin was soaked in water for 80 minutes. What has your sunscreen done for you lately?

Gold has emerged as a popular skincare ingredient over the past few years, but some people allege that it’s all hype. Billed as an effective antiaging, anti-inflammatory, and anti-acne agent, at best it often does nothing, and at worst it can irritate the skin. [NYT]

 
Beer and honey, on the other hand, are ingredients that have stood the test of time—at least according to Catherine Zeta Jones, who reportedly conditions her hair with a mixture of the two, while using Elizabeth Arden face and body products, of course. [Total Beauty]
