Carrots are an excellent source of vitamins and minerals. In oil form, the vegetables are also a true beauty all-rounder.
Beta-Carotene: Why you should incorporate carrot oil into your care routine now?
The sometimes underestimated carrot has numerous positive properties. Beta-carotene, for example, which the body converts into vitamin A for cell formation, or lycopene, which acts as an antioxidant, protects. However, it is time not only to steadily integrate the orange-colored vegetables into our diet but also to use them as a beauty product - in the form of carrot oil. This is a common seed oil, such as cold-pressed almond oil, jojoba oil, or sesame oil, enriched with carrots.
The contained vitamin A supports the functionality and cell renewal of the skin, which is why it can protect against premature skin aging and sun-related DNA damage. The contained carotenoids (strong antioxidants) give the oil its protective function. Mix up your anti-aging care products yourself: add a small amount of carrot oil to your night cream to enrich it with its positive properties. However, caution is advised with light-colored bed linen or towels, as the oil stains textiles. Care products from experts such as Diaderma and Erdenstolz are uncomplicated.
Carrot oil provides a remedy for dry skin on cold winter days: The vitamin A and provitamin A it contains provides the skin with an extra dose of moisture for a fresh complexion. The natural ingredients care for particularly sensitive skin in a gentle way. The ultimate moisture booster: Mix a few drops of the oil into your moisturizer after cleansing your face - a cream with aloe vera is particularly suitable to support the effect.
The anti-inflammatory and antibacterial effects of carrot oil make it a natural active ingredient against impurities. The ingredients have a regulating effect on impure and oily skin and have a slightly drying effect.
The vitamin A contained in the oil provides moisture and can prevent split ends. Apply the oil to towel-dried hair as a treatment and leave it on for 10 to 15 minutes. Then wash off the oil with water and shampoo. Important: Only distribute the oil into the lengths of the hair and ends - not into the roots. Since carotenoids are coloring, your scalp can (discolor and) take on an unwanted orange tone.
