    Default Do carrots lighten skin?

    3 beauty benefits of carrots

    You probably already know that the beloved orange carrot is great for your health. Low in calories and sodium, it’s high in vitamins and antioxidants thought to protect from environmental stressors.

    But would you be surprised to learn that carrots are also great for your skin and complexion? Here’s why you may want to add a few more to your salads and soups this spring as you get ready for your spring look.

    1. CARROTS GIVE YOU A HEALTHY GLOW

    You know how your hands get a little orange from handling carrots? Consume a few more than you usually would and you could enjoy a natural healthy glow this spring.

    “If you want a healthier and more attractive skin color,” said lead researcher Dr. Ian Stephen, “you are better off eating a healthy diet with plenty of fruit and vegetables than lying in the sun.”

    Your body turns beta-carotene—the main carotenoid in orange carrots—into vitamin A in the body. A small carrot supplies nearly 300 percent of your daily intake of vitamin A (4,142 micrograms of beta-carotene), so one carrot a day could take you a long way toward that healthy glow you’re going for this spring.

    2. CARROTS MAY HELP REDUCE THE LOOK OF FINE LINES AND WRINKLES

    Can you eat a carrot and reduce the appearance a wrinkle?

    It's not quite that simple, but add more carrots to your daily diet and you may increase the skin’s health.

    One cup of carrot juice straight or in your smoothie will give you about 22 mg of beta-carotene, as well as a good dose of vitamin C, which also could help the skin appear more firm and plump.

    3. CARROTS MAY HELP WITH OILY SKIN

    Carrots for oily skin? It’s worth a try.

    The key again is the beta-carotene, which is converted to vitamin A in the body. Vitamin A, in various forms like retinoids and tretinoin, is already included in many topical oily skin products. But you can naturally boost the skin’s vitamin A content by eating the carrots, as well.

    For years, dermatologists denied that there was any connection between oily skin and diet, but now we’re beginning to learn more. Recent studies have found that certain foods, like dairy products and high-glycemic items, can, indeed, set the stage for more oily skin.
