Researchers at Australia’s Macquarie University and other researchers found out that beta-carotene supplements give the skin a healthy glow. The researchers are now in the process of testing if drinking a daily smoothie rich in carotenoids that includes sweet potatoes, carrots, cantaloupe and romaine lettuce, has the same effect.
The studies are sill ongoing but as per the researchers, the results look promising. Below is the recipe to a natural summery glow without the sun damage.
