Carrot – a vegetable rich in minerals and vitamins

Carrots seem to be an inconspicuous vegetable, but they contain a whole range of valuable nutrients and vitamins. The most important are, of course, carotenoids, which give it its characteristic orange color. This vegetable contains several different types of carotenoids, such as: lycopene, alpha-carotene, beta-carotene, provitamin A and lutein. We also cannot forget about vitamins such as C, E, K and B6. Additionally, there are: folic acid, iron, calcium, phosphorus, magnesium, potassium, sodium and zinc.

Carrots are not only low-calorie, but also have scientifically proven health-promoting properties thanks to the content of vitamins and other ingredients. After all, we have been told since childhood that it is good for our eyesight. In addition, it is beneficial for the digestive, immune and circulatory systems. Moreover, it supports the functioning of the heart and brain and has anti-cancer properties. It is recommended primarily to people suffering from vitamin A deficiency, malnutrition and anemia.

Carrots – which is often forgotten – can also help with beauty care. It is the perfect vegetable to support our efforts to achieve beautiful skin. But how can it be used?

Carrot mask. The perfect way to get glowing skin

Thanks to the ingredients and minerals it contains, carrots are an ideal ingredient for cosmetics. Products with its extract protect against free radicals and have anti-aging properties. Moreover, they moisturize, give elasticity and support the natural regeneration processes of the skin. We also cannot forget that carrot extract soothes the effects of sunburn, reduces skin inflammation – such as acne, eczema and acne – and enhances the effects of creams and balms. Therefore, it is worth considering using it in homemade masks.

For example, thanks to a carrot mask with honey and olive oil, we will be able to improve the tone of our skin. We will need:

  • one young carrot
  • a tablespoon of olive oil
  • a teaspoon of honey

Grate the carrot on a small grater or grind it finely in a blender. Add honey and olive oil to it and mix everything thoroughly. Apply the mask to a cleansed face and leave for about 15 minutes. After this time, wash everything under running water.

The mask prepared in this way will not only restore the skin's healthy glow, but will also help with pimples and enlarged pores. It is therefore perfect for people with oily and acne-prone skin. You can also add a little lemon juice to it, although it is not recommended for people with dry skin.
