Is There A Youth Code?

July 13th, 2011

On a hot summer day you can often find me with a tall glass of fresh green juice. This tasty beverage is a healthy energy booster that gives me that extra sprint to run after my son or get me through my work day. But it also provides many needed vitamins and minerals that are great for beautiful looking skin.

Some people like drinking just plain old carrot juice but others might have heard of people turning orange from drinking carrot juice and have never tried it. Don’t despair as according to experts this is not the carrot juice that is showing through the skin but an overflow of materials which have been clogging the liver and are being eliminated with the consumption of carrot juice.

They recommend to just keep consuming carrot juice and your entire system will clean up. The benefits for your skin are of course amazing as these toxins are what caused breakout and other non-wanted skin conditions. The end results is clean, clear and glowing skin. (SORRY CAN’T HELP MYSELF, DON’T MISS ON THE KILLER DEAL BELOW)

Carrots Are Essential For Balanced Skin

The carotenoids, the most famous compound in carrots, is a powerful antioxidant that boosts your skin’s capacity to protect itself against damage from exposure to UV rays.

Carrots are also an excellent source of pro-vitamin A, vitamins C, D, E, K, B1 and B6.

Vitamin A promotes overall immunity and the growth of skin tissue, is a natural detoxifying cleanse for the liver, and enhances clear vision for those beautiful eyes.

And carrots have lots of those skin-loving antioxidants that help fend off assaults from free radicals that develop due to our daily brush with pollutants, allergens, chemical additives in food, and smoke.

But of course when we think of vitamins A, C, E & K, we are reminded that a daily dose of these vitamins are essential for healthy balanced skin.

Therefore adding a glass of carrot juice to your diet you can reduce acne, blemishes, black heads, scars and inflamed skin while improving your skin tone.

Caution, our orange friend has lots of natural sugars and diabetics are cautioned against excessive servings of it.

As you’re bustling through the city summer sun or lying on the beach, remember the first benefit of carrots, carotenoids, as they help protect your skin from UV rays. And with that said make sure to use sufficient sun block as this is one of the biggest reasons for aging skin.
