Recent research has discovered that eating fruits and veggies not only makes you feel good—it can make you more attractive, too. A new study conducted at the University of St. Andrews in Scotland and published in the journal PloS ONE tracked the fruit and vegetable consumption of 35 participants over the course of six weeks and documented changes in their skin color. Researchers found that those who ate more fruits and vegetables displayed healthier, more appealing red and yellow tones in their skin. According to test organizers, an increase of approximately three daily servings of produce maintained over six weeks will produce an ideal shift in skin tone for “apparent health and attractiveness” improvement.
