Eat More Beta Carotene
Our bodies are so smart!
During winter, when there is less sun (therefore, less exposure to vitamin D), I have been craving extensively skin-enhancing vitamins like beta carotene. And there is a reason why!
When we consume orange foods (carrots, yams, sweet potatoes, cantaloupe, squash, peppers, persimmons, apricots and the like), our body converts the beta carotene compounds into vitamin A (asp used topically as retinol).
If you want a brighter and clearer complexion, natural glow and better vision – go grab an orange snack and chew on few carrots. 🍑🍑🍑🍊
