Psychologists at the University of Nottingham in Malaysia have found that “beauty smoothies” made of carrots, orange juice, and other sources of carotenoids can make you more attractive. In the experiment, the test group that drank a daily carotenoid-lad- en beverage began to exhibit more orange and red tones in their skin. (One reason why carotenoids are a prized antioxidant is that they accumulate in the skin, where they also help slow aging.) Previous research has drawn the correlation that people with high levels of carotenoids in their skin are generally considered more attractive that those with lower levels. Scientist aren’t sure if the transformative powers of the carrot smoothie come from the color it exhibits or the anti-aging influence it has on the skin. We ask: Does it really matter?
