The skin consist a protein melanin which causes pigmentation, the shining or lusture of the skin is also lost by sun rays. Add lycopene in your diet which is an anti oxidant and help to maintain lusture. It is present in colored fruits and vegetables like tomato, water melon etc. You can see the detail here.

To improve your skin colour you should go for a balanced diet which is rich in Vitamins & Minerals and plenty of water. You should also avoid taking fatty vegetables and fatty proteins.

Dry fruits like Almond,Walnut,Apricot,Pista,etc will help you to bring a glow & lustre to your skin. My advise is to take Apricot daily in the morning before taking breakfast since i helps you to rejuvenates the skin because of its Vitamin A effect. It contains polyunsaturated fats and is very good for skin. You can also make a face pack using apricot will smooths away the wrinkles and give you a glow and lustre.

HI!
The first thing that gets you noticed is your face and therefore it is very important to stay healthy to keep it looking young, fresh and attractive. A smart skin care routine should include the basics of cleansing, toning, moisturizing and adequate sleep with a healthy balanced diet to help you reflect this on your face.
True beauty is beyond just maintaining a beautiful complexion and looking healthy through cosmetics. It has more to do with glowing skin that radiates freshness and vitality because the person is in good health. For maintaining beauty, complexion and youthful good looks, it is important to maintain a healthy lifestyle and great skin-care habits.
SKIN ROUTINE
Maintain a balanced diet and restrict your intake of refined food, like sugar,white breads which can drain the body of essential vitamins and minerals. This leads to wrinkles and premature aging of the skin and is best avoided. The key to maintaining a youthful and beautiful complexion lifelong is to consume food rich in vitamins and essential fatty acids. This means lots of fruits, vegetables and fish and - eight glasses of water daily – to eliminate toxic waste and hydrate the skin
.
Regular exercise helps to supply more oxygen to your skin cells, leaving the skin nourished and more firm while also reducing stress that can show on your skin in the form of fine wrinkles,crow's feet and bagginess around eyes.It also leaves you mentally recharged and refreshed which automatically reflects on your well being.

Cleanse, tone and moisturize twice daily with products that are gentle on your skin and yet adequately hydrate your skin and leave it feeling supple and smooth.

Choose products with natural vitamins and minerals, which contain the level of SPF (Sun Protection Factor) needed for going out in the sun .For Indian sun, an SPF of 15 and above is recommended. Limiting sun exposure is very necessary for those wanting to increase the youthful appearance of their skin as this is one major factor for causing premature aging and skin discoloration while also increasing your risk of skin cancer. Liberally applying sunscreen 20 minutes before leaving for the outdoors and reapplying every 4 hours there after is thus advised.
TOP SKIN BOOSTING FOODS
Almonds are natural moisturizers since they contain high dosage of vitamin E and oil extracted from almonds is used for treating dark circles and excessively dry skin.
VITAMIN A-this maintains integrity of skin . Beta carotene is the active form of vitamin A accumulates in the skin and provides protection against sun damage. Good source of this carotenoid includes carrots, papaya, mango, spinach, sweet potato, broccoli, watermelon and tomatoes.
B-complex vitamins – good sources include meat, poultry, whole grains, banana, fish, eggs.
Vitamin C – it helps to maintain collagen which acts as a supporting structure for the skin. Good sources include citrus fruits and vegetables like orange, lime, lemon, guava, indian gooseberry, strawberries and green and red peppers.
Vitamin E – this antioxidant helps to slow down the ageing process, good sources include almonds, leafy vegetables, salmon, , legumes and safflower oil.
Selenium and zinc – oyster is a very good source of both zinc and selenium, other sources include seafood, soybeans, mushrooms, wheat germ and whole grains.
Besides having a healthy meal it is very important to drink lots of water in a day to keep the skin well hydrated and maintain its elasticity.

As your skin-tone is based on your genetics, which then are based on the evolutionary needs of your ancestors. Having said that, many of these factors predetermine your skin pigment for the rest of your life. However, it's been known that long term consumption of Tomatoes can cause skin to redden/bronze because of the beta carotene overload in your system. However, my understanding is that this effect lasts for only as long as the beta carotene surplus is in effect and is not permanent.

Having said that, blushing is both a psychological and physical response; while over-blushing may be a symptom of another underlying condition.

Frequent cardiovascular exercise, as it increases blood-flow around your system, may produce an effect for some individuals leaving them with a slightly more flushed complexion. This maybe the most reasonable long term solution for your question.

Hope this helps!

This is out of my experience.

1) Wash your face in bore water.
- Since bore water contains salt, it enriches the vitamins in skin and gives natural color.
2) Use Olive oil and massage the skin.
3) Drink plenty of water.

Good Day Everyone

To have good complexion we need to eat lots of fruits and vegetable. We should avoid fried food. And one thing whihc is very much important would be drinking plenty of water. Water removes the toxins that deposits and cause black heads and pimples.
