Myth or Fact: Eating too many carrots can turn your skin orange. The surprising truth is that, yes, eating too many carrots can change the color of your skin.
“Carrots can, in fact, cause an orangish yellow skin pigmentation,” says Dr. Lady Dy, a dermatologist with Advocate Lutheran General Hospital in Park Ridge, Ill. “It’s called carotenemia and is often most noticeable on thick skin like palms of your hands or the soles of your feet.”
Let’s face it: we all want to look young forever and avoid saggy, aging skin. It turns out, a healthy lifestyle is the best secret to maintaining your skin’s youth. Your daily skincare regimen and lifestyle choices can delay or even prevent the need for a facelift later in life. This means your need to start fighting the signs of aging as early as possible.
