#1: Reducing scars


Ugly scars and blemishes are the bane of every woman. But they will cease to be a problem thanks to potassium, a nutrient which is found in abundance in carrots. Carrots also lighten your skin tone, keep your skin nourished and hydrated.

How to use carrots: Grate two carrots and add one teaspoon of milk, olive oil and honey. Apply this pack on your face for 15 minutes and rinse it off with water for hydrated and glowing skin.


#2: Soft, smooth skin


Carrots contain beta-carotene, which gets converted to vitamin A in your body. Vitamin A helps form a protective film that maintains the pH balance of your skin. So, if your skin is acting up lately, soothe it with some fresh carrots!

How to use carrots: The best way to make use of carrots in your beauty regime is to apply a carrot face pack. Mix half a glass of carrot juice with one tablespoon of honey, egg yolks and flour. Apply it on your face for about 20 minutes and wash off the excess with a steaming hot towel followed by a cold towel.


#3: Reduces sun burn


Have you been sun burnt lately? Well, use carrots to get rid of the burns naturally. Beta-carotene, which are plentiful in carrots, are a great way to get rid of sun damage.

How to use carrots: Mix one part of carrot juice with two parts of rose water and store it in a spray bottle. Spray it on yourself daily to soothe your skin and to reduce sun damage. Replace the mist every two to three days.


#4: Anti-ageing


Every woman wants her body clock to stop so that she can have beautiful skin throughout her life. Now, thanks to carrots, your dream can come true. Carrots contain beta-carotene, which helps reduce cell degeneration and in turn decelerate the process of ageing. They help increase the collagen levels in your skin which ensures that your skin remains elastic and firm.

How to use carrots: Use carrot juice instead of your toner!


#5: Keeping acne at bay


Instead of spending thousands of rupees on your monthly detox, just walk into a grocery store and buy some carrots! Carrots contain essential oils which help detoxify your skin. They help reduce the skin impurities and keep acne away. Carrots are also jam packed with healthy nutrients and are often recommended by doctors for skin diseases like rashes, eczema and dermatitis.

How to use carrots: Boil a carrot, mash it and apply it on your face in a circular motion. Rinse it off with milk after twenty minutes for clean, glowing skin.


#6: For crowning glory


Carrots are a great source of vitamin A, is a well known fact. But did you know that without vitamin A, your scalp will become itchy dry and full of dandruff? Vitamin A helps produce oils that keep your scalp on its best behaviour.

How you can use carrots: Boil carrots and blend them into a smooth paste. Next, add some yoghurt and one egg. Apply this pack and keep it for an hour and wash it off with warm water for lustrous, soft and shiny hair.

 

Using carrots in your beauty regime is one important way to get its benefits. But you must make it a point to incorporate it in your diet for best results.
