In the Reboot Kitchen: Sun Kissed Juice

Get glowing skin with this beautiful juice rich in carotenoids, a family of more than 700 naturally-occurring yellow, red and orange pigments found in vegetables and fruits. A small study from the University of St. Andrews in Scotland showed the groups that consumed just 3 extra servings of carotenoid containing fruits and vegetables showed a small change in their skin tones and coloration that was enough to be perceived as more attractive to others in just 6 weeks. Here is more information on how fruits and vegetables can make us appear more attractive.
