Your skin is a reflection of your underlying health. Good nutrition including fresh vegetable juice such as carrots can play a role in creating better-looking skin. Carrot Juice is used for skin health to provide curative and preventative properties for healthy glowing skin. The largest organ in the body, our skin is the first defense against germs and the environment. One of the best ways to slow the aging of skin is to ensure the skin is well hydrated by consuming fresh juice and plenty of water each day.

Carrots are regarded as the 'herbal healer' of skin diseases as they promote the repair of skin tissue. Carrot juice is a valuable source of Vitamin A, which is a major vitamin for skin health. Carrots are rich in antioxidants, including phytochemicals, vitamins and minerals, which protect, nourish and moisturize the skin. Nutrition received from carrots helps to reduce photosensitivity to promote skin renewal and protect the skin from sun damage.

Carrot juice acts as an anti-inflammatory and revitalizes and tones the skin. Cosmetically, carrots are used to treat dermatitis, eczema, rashes and wrinkles caused by free radicals. Carrot juice is also used to assist in the healing of cuts and abrasions. Complexion problems due mainly to toxic overload in the body and an acidic condition in the blood can be stabilized through consumption of carrot juice. Potassium in the carrots helps to neutralize the excess acid and the vitamin A assists the liver in flushing toxins from the body.

A recent study in the Netherlands found a significant link between skin condition and the level of vitamin A in the blood. Natural vitamin A in the form of Beta Carotene is abundant in fresh carrot juice thereby negating the need for vitamin A supplements.

Vitamin A deficiencies in the body include: premature wrinkling, skin impurities, acne, dry, scaly and rough skin, especially on the arms and legs. Carrot juice applied daily is great for uneven skin tones due to blemishes and pigmentation. Extract juice from carrots and pineapple using a juicer: mix pineapple juice and carrot juice together, apply it on the face and wash off after 15 minutes. Use this daily to achieve clear and even toned skin.

Hi

Carrots and carrot juice are absolutely loaded with vitamin A, which is an essential nutrient in maintaining not only healthy skin, but strong teeth and bones. Vitamin A is also known to boost the immune system, in addition to being a natural antioxidant. Recent studies have shown that individuals who have high levels of vitamin A in their blood, are less susceptible to early ageing, and generally have stronger immune systems. The primary source of a vitamin A rich diet is in vegetables and fruits that contain large amount of plant carotenoids, such as carrots, spinach, mango, pumpkin, kale, sweet potatoes, and many others. Carrots are however the most abundant source, so be sure to drink up on that carrot juice, even if you don't particularly like the taste of it.

Thanks
Have a nice time ahead

In many organic health circles, carrots are known as one of the best herbal healers, especially when skin is concerned. They have been proven to help treat acne, rashes, scarring, dermatitis, eczema, and wrinkles. In addition to containing vitamin A as we mentioned earlier, carrot juice also contains a large amount of potassium, another essential mineral that can contribute to maintaining healthy skin complexion. If you find that your skin is blotchy or extremely dry, then that might be a sign of poor nutrition in your diet, such as not eating enough fruits and vegetables. The trick is to eating as many raw fruits and vegetables as possible, as cooking them can often times destroy most the nutrients that they contain, thus leaving little more than fiber. If you're not sure how many servings of fruits and vegetables you should be eating, then please consult with a nutritionist.
