Forget the tanning beds, to accumulate leave jars of cream and not even think about getting a `burn` under the midday sun. The secret of a nice tan is the distance from the refrigerator.
As surely as the tides and moon phases, the approach of summer brings with it concerns about the line and will display a tan envy. This is when it decides to start the diet started after Christmas ("I`ll start the year in beauty") or Easter ("Now is it!") And makes use of anti-cellulite and self-tanning.
It is known that there is no miracle formulas, but it is known above all that, rather than attacking the problem from the outside and on top of the hour, the more effective it is from the inside (literally) and anticipate the bathing season. This is true not only for weight loss how to tan. After all, getting a roasting in the sun in intensive sessions `work for the bronze` is outmoded and is harmful to health and self-tanners, though able to give the skin color with a smell of the beach, this does not last forever.
But not worth despair, you have to do is use the knowledge of the latest research in nutrition and biology to build a plan of attack. With the right foods in proper combination can, in addition to losing some flab, keep an attractive skin tone! And it`s easier than you might think, a diet rich in nutrients that promote the production of melanin in the two months prior to sun exposure not only helps to get a tan as fast as it remains for much longer. The idea is not only faster but also tan tan better. For this, the usual diet - which is usually the reduction of fats and carbohydrates and increased intake of fruits and vegetables - must be added specific nutrients that have the power to prepare the skin to the sun. And here are the magic words: carotenoids and antioxidants.
Carotenoids, the chemical plants
If you think the word strange and hard to pronounce, do not worry because you`ll learn that phytochemicals are carotenoids (from vegetables) responsible for the color red, yellow and orange and some foods with beneficial properties for health, including the skin. Beta carotene, also called pro-vitamin A, is the best known, but zeaxanthin, the alfacaroteno the beta cryptoxanthin, lycopene are other carotenoids with ability to activate the production of melanin and protect the skin from the harmful effects of ultra- Violet has that fight free radicals responsible for cell aging.
How are easily destroyed when cooked, so the ideal is to eat foods that contain raw.
Because it is good: this plant pigment is converted by the body of vitamin A or retinol (the active form of vitamin A) which stimulates the production of melanin, the pigment that gives color to the skin. Has a role in view, counteracts the effects of cell aging and has a positive effect on cardiovascular diseases.
Where you are: carrots, dried apricots, tomato puree, sweet potato, loquat, cantaloupe, kale, cabbage, papaya, kiwi, watercress, asparagus, spinach, turnips, broccoli.
Because it is good: Studies suggest that alfacaroteno have more powerful effects than carotene despite being at lower doses in food.
Because it is good: responsible for the red color of tomatoes, lycopene increases the ability of UV resistance and reduces the chances of contracting prostate cancer, stomach, lung and cervix.
Because it is good: it protects the skin and eyes from solar radiation.

Omega 3 is good for your skin
The carotenoids are lipid-soluble substances, that is, dissolved in the fat and therefore consume a good fat percentage of calls, so-called essential fatty acids omega-3 or stimulates its absorption by the body. In addition, these fats, found in fatty fish like salmon and sardines help repair the damaging effects of sun and keep the tone of the skin, so make sure that does not exclude them completely from the diet.
Antioxidants, the benefactors of the skin
If carotenoids stimulate melanin production and accelerate the tanning process, the antioxidants will protect the skin from the effects of free radicals and preventing the premature aging. Vitamin C, E and beta carotene are well known antioxidants, but the flavonoids present in green and black teas, apples, cabbage, onions, soy products, parsley, eggplant and pepper, seem to have even greater capacity in this area. The effect of the antioxidants is greater when consumed in association with each other. Therefore, make sure that the flavonoids combines with vitamins C, E and B complex and minerals like zinc, iron, copper and selenium.
Because it is good: it favors the formation of new skin tissue and protects the skin from free radicals, preventing premature aging. It is vital for the production of collagen and plays an important role in wound healing and burns.
Vitamin B complex
Why do well: essential in maintaining the metabolism of cells, including connective tissue and mucous membranes, these vitamins help maintain healthy skin, hair and nails.
Because it is good: combats free radicals, strengthens capillary walls and prevents the damage caused by excessive sun exposure.
Because it is good: it contributes to skin renewal.
Because it is good, plus vitamin E, is a powerful antioxidant that helps maintain tissue elasticity and compensate the damage caused by the sun.
Where you are: wheat germ, whole grains, fish, brewer`s yeast and nuts.
