"The beta carotene content of carrot juice makes it effective in controlling sebum production and reducing the incidence of acne breakouts," said Mitsios. "For more effective results, I recommend drinking carrot juice along with applying it topically."
With consistent consumption, you'll notice a decrease in acne and smoother skin within a few months. (Just be aware that there's such a thing as drinking too much carrot juice. Add it to your diet, but be moderate in your consumption.)
You can also make a DIY mask using carrot juice to reduce and prevent acne. Dr. Patel said that in India, acne-fighting masks are made with one teaspoon of chickpea flour, one teaspoon of turmeric, and one cup of carrot pulp. Mix until the mask has a smooth consistency, apply, let it set for 15 minutes, and then rinse.
