Fruits have always been associated with beauty and vitality. In Norse mythology, apples were a symbol of eternal youth. In Chinese culture, pomegranates represented fertility. And in our own superstition, many believe that eating mangoes would result in fair-skinned babies. But what about in real life?

Apparently, fruits do have beauty-boosting properties! According to a study reported in TIME, they help even out your skin tone and give you a rosier complexion.

“Our study suggests that an increase in fruit and veggie consumption of around three portions, sustained over a six-week period, is sufficient to convey perceptible improvements in the apparent healthiness and attractiveness of facial skin,” says lead researcher Dr. Ross Whitehead.
