Reduces Redness and Scarring
"Carrot juice contains high amounts of beta carotene, which are converted into retinol, one of the purest forms of vitamin A," said Mitsios. "Vitamin A works as a wonder vitamin when it comes to skin healing and reducing redness and inflammation."
It's definitely most potent when consumed, though you can also hit your refrigerator for a DIY beauty treatment utilizing carrot juice to rejuvenate, brighten, and calm your skin. One option is to gently dab pure carrot juice onto your skin with a cotton pad. Another is to create a mask.
"It is as easy as mixing the juice of one carrot with two tablespoons of oatmeal and one tablespoon of organic coconut nectar or honey to create a thick paste," said Mitsios. "Oatmeal works synergistically with the carrot juice to calm redness and inflammation and to purify pores due to its high saponin content. One tablespoon of yogurt can also be added to this mix for assistance with oil balancing."
Apply the mask on your face and leave it on for 20 minutes.
