This summer, despite its greyness, it was important to take care of your skin, and now we are sharing life hacks for those who want to maintain a beautiful tan. Adding foods rich in carotenoids to your diet will not only help give your skin a lasting chocolate shade, but also protect it from the negative effects of sun rays.

  • Spinach: Rich in lutein and zeaxanthin, these carotenoids protect pigment-forming cells and promote more even pigment distribution in the skin. It is recommended to consume 200-300 g of spinach per day.
  • Carrots: Source of β-carotene, a natural antioxidant that reduces signs of aging and gives skin a warm tone. It is enough to eat one medium carrot per day.
  • Avocado: Rich in a variety of nutrients, including fat-soluble vitamins E and A, helps fight UV damage to the skin. It is recommended to eat no more than one avocado per day.
  • Eggs: The amino acid L-tyrosine found in eggs helps increase pigment in the skin. It is recommended to consume 100 g of eggs per day.
  • Broccoli: Rich in vitamin C, broccoli supports collagen production, improving skin color and function.
  • Atlantic Salmon: Rich in omega-3 fatty acids and the antioxidant astaxanthin, helps retain moisture in the skin, improving its condition.
  • Tomato: Containing lycopene, tomato absorbs ultraviolet rays and may reduce the intensity of skin redness after exposure to sunlight.

By adding these products to your diet, you can not only maintain a long-lasting tan, but also provide your skin with additional protection from the sun’s rays.
