No doubt several of you made the resolution to eat healthier this year. And aside from all the benefits you normally think about when it comes to eating vegetables, there is a new study that claims they help improve your skin tone as well.




The study, which was conducted by a doctor at the University of Nottingham, found that people who eat a greater number of servings of fruits and vegetables containing carotenoids (antioxidants) have a more  golden skin color. And that based on surveys done, a veggie-rich complexion was judged more beautiful than a normal complexion and a tanned complexion.
