  • Well.I am an Indian and similar to your tone.I had supplements of Lycopene and beta-carotene for my psoriasis.Well But I am loving my Yellow hue now.Trust me you look great in Yellow hue :)Read a few articles regarding thyroid role in carotenemia and deficiency of VitA. Thyroid stops proper functioning due to which conversion of carotene in Vit A stops. Hence undigested carotene results in change in color of lipids and pigments.Similar are the cases for metal intakes like Silver & Gold, But as carotene is a supplement and antioxidant it is much natural mate of human body.You might suffer deficiency of VitA.If you find it uncomfortable to bear .... Yes there is a cure.Please visit your doctor.
