Fall is here and as the colors of the leaves are changing, our tans are fading. I love being tan and this time of the year, it is nearly impossible to have any color on my skin without spending money at tanning beds, spray tans, or self tanner.
After doing some research, I learned that there is a better, healthier way to tan without wasting money on these expensive tanning alternatives. Check out my list of skin superfoods that will help you eat your way to tanner and clearer skin.

Red bell peppers are full of carotenoids which warm your skins natural tone. One slice of a bell pepper a day will not only boost your tan, but also provide your body with three times your daily dose of Vitamin C.
