Well, apart from externally trying to improve our skin health, what we consume can boost our skin healthy from within and the best way is to eat skin-health boosting foods.
But, for those of you who do not like eating it in the form of food, there’s an easy way out – drink it in the form of juice! Here is a simple skin brightening juice recipe for you below!
What does this skin brightening juice contain and how does it benefit the skin?
This juice contains 3 simple, yet very effective and powerful ingredients – carrots, turmeric root and oranges, that can boost skin health like never before.
Here are their benefits:
Carrots contain high levels of potassium and can help reduce dry skin, as it acts as a natural skin hydrating agent and moisturizes the skin. They contain vitamin A, in the form of beta-carotene, which has anti-inflammatory properties that can help promote cell turnover and healing. It can also protect the skin from the harsh UV rays of the sun.
Carrots are very helpful for treating acne, as it contains high levels of vitamin A. It can also help flush out toxins from the body, this reducing acne breakouts. They can help reduce premature signs of ageing like wrinkles and fine lines, by boosting the production of collagen in the body.
Turmeric root is the natural and purest form of turmeric and it is an essential ingredient for those who are looking to brighten and even out their skin tone (like those who are prone to getting tanned or have dark patches or pigmentation on the skin). For those who have pigmentation, consuming turmeric can help reduce the appearance of the dark patches on the skin and can prevent the skin from darkening.
It acts as a natural skin moisturizer that can help keep the skin soft and supple and prevent the skin from becoming dry. It helps keep the skin nourished at all times and can promote better cell turnover. It can help stimulate better blood circulation in the body and in turn can help reduce inflammation with its anti-inflammatory effects and can also help reduce puffiness and lighten the dark circles.
Turmeric helps keep the skin youthful and slows down the signs of aging and also can help prevent the skin from premature aging.
Oranges are rich in vitamin C and vitamin C is essential for the production of collagen (an essential protein produced naturally by the body) and elastin (highly elastic protein which is helpful to allow the tissues in the body to resume their shape after stretching or contracting) in the body. Orange juice contain antioxidants and can help protect the skin cells from ultra-violet damage, prevent wrinkles and fine lines, hydrates the skin, promotes wound healing, lowers dark pigmentation of the skin and also reduces inflammation.
