Carrots: protection against UV rays and free radicals

Wassup Doc!

You will not want to overlook carrots; they help us stay wrinkle-free.

Carrots prevent wrinkles because they have high amount of Vitamin A such that are good antioxidants and promote skin cell renewal, resulting in a clear and well-toned skin.

Carotenoids in carrots fight against free radicals and harmful sun rays. If you are an active person under the sun, carrots will reduce skin damage caused by UV rays.

For those who want to restore the firmness of their skin, consider carrot seed oil. It contains Beta carotene and vitamin A which maintains the elasticity, firmness and radiance of your skin.
