Foods for tanning: which ones to choose?

Cibi per l’abbronzatura: quali scegliere?

There are several foods that improve the tan and allow you to achieve the perfect complexion of the skin. But which ones to choose? Let's find out together!


Among the foods that promote tanning we certainly find a lot of fruit and vegetables and, in particular, carrots.

Thanks to the abundant amount of vitamin A they contain, they are essential in the diet of those in search of the perfect tan.

Carrots are particularly effective for tanning if eaten cooked and with a drizzle of olive oil.


Apricots are among the fruits that contain more beta-carotene, a substance contained in vegetables and fruits with a red and orange color and many nutritional properties.

Beta-carotene protects the skin from excess sunlight and reduces its sensitivity during exposure to sunlight.


Peaches are rich in vitamin C which prevents skin aging and therefore allows you to tan in a healthy way.

This fruit is rich in antioxidants and for this reason it helps maintain normal blood vessel function and good skin health.

Dried fruit

Dried fruit, in particular walnuts, almonds and hazelnuts, are rich in vitamin E and Omega 3. They have an effective protective action on the skin from sunburn and other irritations.


Don't forget to include nuts in your summer diet!



Pineapple juice improves circulation and is highly thirst-quenching. 

To be consumed individually or to be included in a perfect fruit salad to improve the tan and fight the summer heat!




From the scorching heat of Spain comes a valid solution to protect skin health even in summer.

Gazpacho is a cold soup made with raw vegetables (tomato, peppers, cucumbers and onion), particularly popular in regions such as Andalusia which in summer easily exceeds 40° C.


It can be enjoyed both for lunch and served at aperitif time and can be a valuable aid in the search for the perfect tan.




Cherries turn out to be a perfect food to promote tanning thanks to their ability to protect the microcirculation.


Perfect for a mid-morning snack!


Hydration to improve the tan


In addition to consuming foods that improve tanning, it is important to stay hydrated to protect the skin from the heat and summer heat.


In fact, it is essential to drink at least two liters of water a day, and to prefer centrifuges and natural fruit juices with no added sugar.


Even alcohol certainly does not help the body and it is advisable to reduce the consumption of alcohol and spirits to a minimum.


So what are the secrets for a perfect tan?


It is important to prepare the skin before actual exposure to the sun using an exfoliant that eliminates dead cells.


Furthermore, a gradual approach is suggested to avoid burns or other skin problems: in the first days, in fact, it is enough to expose yourself to the sun for a few minutes to promote the production of melanin.

Finally, when proper nutrition and these small precautions are not enough to improve the tan, you can help yourself with natural supplements rich in zinc and biotin that protect the natural well-being of the skin.


Concilium products are perfect for maintaining hydration even during the summer so as to show off a skin that is always perfect and nourished for a long time!
