Secrets of nature for beautiful skin
In April 2011, the houseware and kitchen tools label Kenwood (founded 1947 by Kenneth Wood in UK, belongs since 2001 to the Italian De'Longhi Group) presents the new juicer JE850 Excel with some recipes and research results from the University of Bristol (UK) about beautiful skin which comes also from nutrition like vegetables and fruits.
According to the researchers of the University of Bristol, the secrets of the beautifiers from nature are the chemical processes that are evoked by ingredients like carotenoids. Carotenoids have a positive effect on the production of melanin; the result is a fresh 'sun kissed' teint that attracted test persons more than sun tanned skin.
"In the West we often think that sun tanning is the best way to improve the colour of your skin, but our research suggests that living a healthy lifestyle with a good diet might actually be better," says researcher Dr Ian Stephen from the University of Bristol.
The fresh teint does not come from one day to the other. But it's additionally a good method to achieve better nutrition habits. Use it like a snack or sweeties between!
