CAIRO – 15 April 2018: Earlier this month, the world celebrated international carrot day, a rabbit’s favorite food and the base of some of our most beloved cake. But did you know that this delicious orange crunchy vegetable actually has so many benefits for your skin and hair?
Here are four reasons why your skin and hair will be much happier if you eat more carrots:
1- It will make your skin glow
As it is rich in vitamin C and antioxidants, carrots can make your skin a lot healthier.
Mix some carrots with honey, and you have got yourself a perfect mask for natural glowy skin.
2- It is a natural anti-aging solution
Vitamin C in carrots helps restore collagen in your skin naturally. Vitamin A also prevents wrinkles; rich in antioxidants, it attacks free radicals to avoid developing any wrinkles.
3- It saves you from unsolicited dry skin
Some of us have a deficiency in potassium, which may lead to dry skin. Carrots are actually full of potassium, thus drinking a daily cup of carrot juice is your secret for an all-time hydrated skin.
4- It is the secret for healthier hair
Rich in vitamin A, carrots will make your hair stronger, longer and thicker. Carrots help in improving blood circulation, which will give your hair the look of healthy 20s and prevent the growth of grey hair.
Not only are carrots amazing for your beauty, but for your overall health as well; carrots are rich in alphacarotene and bioflavonoid, which can reduce the risk of lung and breast cancer. They contain a lot of antioxidants, along with Vitamin C, which also boosts your immune system. And of course, carrots strengthen your vision, just like our mothers always said.
On April 4 of every year, the world celebrates the international day of carrots, with the main aim to spread knowledge about carrots and their many benefits. Carrot parties and festivities are held in many countries. You can check carrotday.com for more information.
