We all make an extra effort to acquire healthy and shiny skin. We carefully take care of every cosmetic product available in the market and store them in our vanity box, half of which we do not even use. With the current wave of natural life, we are slowly moving away from supermarkets and entering our own kitchens to take out food to replace expensive skincare products loaded with chemicals. Of all the items stored in our kitchen, you may have never thought of picking up a carrot for your skincare regimen. Surprised? Well, the carrot is another basic element of the kitchen that has shown positive effects on the skin!
Of course, we have heard about how good a carrot is for our body health, including eyes and hair; but the fact that it is a great reinforcement of the skin is unheard of. We have been chewing carrots to take advantage of its benefits in various ways: salads, vegetables, juices, etc. Now, let’s give it another use and apply it topically to see its magical work on our skin.
Not sure how to really do it? Here are some easy-to-make facial packages you can do with carrots:
Facial mask for dry skin
Potassium-rich carrots eliminate dry skin by penetrating the layers of our skin. This mask deeply moisturizes the skin and makes it shine.
Grate half carrot and grind it. Add a teaspoon of honey and a teaspoon of milk, and mix everything well. Apply and store the package for at least 15 minutes and wash it with cold water.
Face pack for oily skin
The vitamin A in carrots removes excess fat and keeps the skin fresh and free of toxins. To use this facial pack, all you have to do is mix a cup of carrot juice with a tablespoon of curd, gram flour, and lemon juice. Apply this mask on the face and neck for half an hour and wash it with warm water.
Clear Complexion Package
Combine equal parts carrot juice, yogurt, and egg white. Apply for 15 minutes and wash with warm water. Carrots play an important role in removing dead skin cells, resulting in a new layer of fresh skin.
The beta-carotene and the carotenoids contained in the carrots protect the skin again against UVA rays and also eliminate tanning.
Mix the carrot juice and rose water in equal parts and fill the mixture in a spray bottle. Spray on the face and body to keep the skin hydrated and help it face the scorching rays of the sun.
Anti Aging Solution
Mix the juices of carrots and aloe vera and apply it regularly to combat the signs of premature aging. Vitamin C, which is found in abundance in carrots, promotes the production of collagen and softens wrinkles.
Carrots are an inexhaustible source of antioxidants, which keep most skin problems and diseases at bay. Welcome this magical vegetable in your skincare routine and say hello to a beautiful new you. However, do not forget to also consume it through your diet to get all its benefits.
