The other day, I received a compliment, "You look too young to be a teenagers mom". It felt so nice, I was walking sorry floating on a cloud the whole day. I'll let you on my secret; first, my genes and second, inclusion of Carrot and Ginger in my diet. Yes it's that plain and simple. Let me break it down :
Carrots are full of biotin, molybdenum, dietary fiber, potassium, Vitamins K, B1,B6,B2,C and E, Manganese, Niacin, Pantothenic acid, Folate, Phosphorus and copper. Potassium helps reduce skin dryness, scars and blemishes. It also gives life to skin by improving the skinn tone. It also improves hydration and thus keeps skin moisturized. Since it is high in essential vitamins, carrot juice helps prevent acne by detoxifying the body. As it contains many healthy nutrients, that can reduce skin related problems like eczema, which is caused by the deficiency of Vitamin A, dermatitis and rashes. The beta carotenoids helps reduce sunburn and also increases the skin's resistance to sun damage. Beta-carotene is converted into Vitamin A in the body. It reduces cell degeneration and thus slows down ageing. It largely improves the amount of collagen in the skin which keeps it firm and healthy. This helps in maintaining elasticity and reduces the visible signs of ageing like sagging skin and wrinkles.
Ginger is a good source of vitamin C, magnesium,potassium, copper, and manganese, ginger is listed as an herbal medicine. Because of its antioxidant properties, ginger can reduce the appearance of hypopigmented scars. Ingesting ginger juice has major anti ageing- benefits. It contains around 40 antioxidant properties that prevent free radical damage and protect against ageing. It also evens skin tone and improves elasticity. In addition to detoxifying and invigorating qualities, ginger is also known to reduce cellulite.
