Carrots, our allies for a healthy complexion

Will winter never end? Do you have a sad face and an anaemic complexion? Then add some carrots to your grocery list! Carotene is one of the substances found in tanning pills, and it occurs naturally in carrots. Of most interest for its root, the carrot contains a substance called betacarotene that our body transforms into vitamin A. It's the skin's provitamin since it protects the skin from the sun's ultraviolet rays, while preparing the skin for tanning and accelerating the process.

For a better color

Drinking a small glass of carrot juice every day will put color on your table and a healthy glow in your complexion.

Why not a quick carrot mask?

A quick trip to the grocery store, two minutes preparation and fifteen minutes relaxation… Result: you'll look like you spent the winter in the tropics.

  • Grate a few carrots; choose deeply colored ones since they contain more beta carotene.
  • Add a few drops of sweet almond extract or oil;
  • apply to the face; let work for 15 minutes and rinse off with warm water.
