Drinking Black Carrot Juice Helps Clear Acne Prone Skin

Drinking black carrot juice has many benefits. If you have skin that is prone to acne, you may find that drinking this type of juice every now and then helps to clear up your pimples.

Along with other healthy lifestyle habits, such as avoiding undue stress that can trigger flare ups, this can help you to produce healthy, radiant skin.

Black carrots are mainly cultivated in Turkey. They are rich in iron, vitamin D and other nutrients. Carrots on a whole are a good source of Vitamin A. This means they have an important role to play in maintaining skin health.

A regular orange carrot usually supplies more than the typical quantity of Vitamin A that a person needs for a single day. Dermatologists usually prescribe Vitamin A, known as Retin-A for acne. Retin-A helps dead cells on the face to shed properly, so they don’t build up and cause the pores to become clogged. Vitamin A is also an anti inflammatory so it calms inflamed skin.

Black carrots moisturize the skin, keeping it soft and supple. They have been used to help keep skin beautiful for many years. Apart from treating acne and keeping the skin supple, Retin-A rich black carrots are also used to help treat hyper pigmentation.

In Jamaica, carrot juice is typically made in one of two ways. The first way is to blend the carrots, strain off the juice and mix that with milk and spices. People who don’t want it that way choose to mix the juice of the carrots with ginger and other ingredients that bring out the flavor.

At a juice bar you will also be able to get a wide range of combinations of carrots with other healthy ingredients such as Moringa, cantaloupes and sweet potatoes. The other ingredients are usually high in Vitamin A as well, so they also help to keep acne prone skin clear.
