You Beta Understand We Carrot About Healthy Skin
At SKINFOOD, we’ve always known that beauty comes from the inside. What you feed your body affects your health, so it follows that what you feed your skin affects your skin’s health.
Picture this: You’ve just peeled a buttery, perfectly ripe avocado. As you're about to spread this rich, green goodness on a piece of toasted brioche, you hear your notification alert on your phone go off, and fall down a TikTok rabbit hole.
By the time you re-emerge into the light, your avocado is now gray and mushy. What happened? Oxidative damage. The oxygen in the air reacted with compounds and enzymes within the avocado, damaging it and producing melanin, the source of the color change.
Just like that avocado, your skin is a mini-reflection of your general health. Free radicals, which are unstable molecules that are omnipresent in our environment, are on a never-ending quest to attach with other atoms and molecules. In the process, they damage your body’s cells through oxidative stress, weakening living cells and tissues. On the surface, this can take different forms, such as hyperpigmentation and acceleration in skin aging.
24 Carrot Protection for Beta Skin
Enter β-Carotene. Beta-carotene is a what gives carrots and other colorful vegetables their vibrant red-orange pigment. It is also a powerful antioxidant, or a substance that inhibits the oxidation of other molecules and protects the body from free radicals and their aging effects. Beta-carotene is a precursor to Vitamin A. Our bodies can convert Beta-carotene into Vitamin A, also known as retinol, an essential vitamin. We obtain it mostly from the foods we consume. Beta-carotene has been shown to increase the skin’s defenses against UV radiation, which is the source of the majority of skin aging and conditions. Using beta-carotene products won’t replace your daily sunscreen, but it’ll boost your sunblocker with its own mild sunscreen effect and can alleviate the symptoms of photo- or light sensitization. Vitamin A is involved in the growth, differentiation, maintenance and reproduction of skin cells, so intake and metabolism of beta-carotene in skin is essential in the body’s synthesis of vitamin A.
You Can’t Carrot Too Much About Healthy Skin
A small raw carrot contains almost 300% of your daily recommended intake of vitamin A, making carrots one of the best sources of beta-carotene.
