Join us in learning for natural skin care at it's finest.
1- Glowing Skin
The same beta carotene that gives carrots their orange color will brighten your skin and make it glow. Don't worry, the amount that we put in our Radiant Vanilla lotion isn't enough to turn your skin orange!
2- Prevents Wrinkles
The beta carotene in carrots is converted into vitamin A in your body. When applied directly to the skin, vitamin A promotes firm, elastic and healthy skin. Our Radiant Vanilla lotion has pureed carrots in the formula to help keep your skin young and fresh.
3- Nourish Dry Skin
Carrots are great if you suffer from dry skin because they are packed with potassium. Although potassium is not absorbed through your skin, it can enhance the moisture and feel of your skin. It adjusts the pH to help keep your skin moisturized.
4- Treat skin Blemishes
Drinking carrot juice may also help in reducing the appearance of blemishes and scars. While I love carrot juices, drinking this day in and day out might not be your cup of tea. If you don’t want to drink the juice, you can also apply carrot pulp directly to your skin. Lucky for you, our Radiant Vanilla lotion has carrot puree in it to even out skin tone for clear skin.
5- Protects Skin from the Sun
Carrots do not contain SPF, so don't apply carrot juice in your skin in the summer. More so, carrots can protect your skin from the sun’s rays! The beta carotene in carrots is a skin-friendly nutrient that gets converted to vitamin A inside the body. It helps repair skin tissues while also protecting skin from harmful radiation. Don't forget to add sunscreen all year round so all your hard work isn't in vain.
