Carrot oil is an excellent cosmetic for hair and skin care
Carrots are vegetables that have a high content of beta carotene (provitamin A) and are an excellent vegetable for eye vision. Vision protects against weakening and degenerative changes. Regular consumption of carrots is beneficial for all organs and especially the organs of the digestive tract. This plant is suitable for the preparation of cosmetic oil for hair and skin. Carrots contain plenty of minerals and vitamins with antioxidant effects. Carrot preparations therefore strengthen the health of hair and skin structures. They nourish the structure of hair and skin, contributing to a better appearance. Homemade preparations with carrots do not contain artificial ingredients, so there is no risk of allergic reactions and hypersensitivity.
Recipe for carrot oil: wash two organically grown carrots with warm water. Dry the carrots with a paper towel and peel. Grate the carrots. Place in a sterilized glass jar. Drizzle with olive oil (or grape seed oil). For 100 grams of carrots you need to put about 150 ml of oil. Close the jar and shake. Leave for about two weeks. Shake the jar daily. Strain the liquid through gauze. Transfer to sterilized glass bottles. Use several times a day (to massage facial skin especially forehead and eye area and for hair care). Massage a generous amount of oil into the scalp and hair root. Put a shower cap on your head. Hold for about 2 hours. Rinse your hair in the usual way. Repeat the procedure 2 to 3 times over seven days. Keep the preparation in the refrigerator. Shelf life is about 3 months.
- Carrots protect the skin from damage from the sun’s rays. Carrot oil can be used to prepare the skin before the summer sun season. It can be combined with other cosmetics to enhance the effect of the oil. Carrot oil is an excellent preparation for skin care after sun exposure.
- Carrots slow down the aging process of the skin because they contain beta carotene, vitamins A and E which are powerful antioxidants. They suppress cell damage (which can cause premature skin aging). It manifests itself mainly on the face in the form of wrinkles and fine lines on the skin. The inclusion of carrot oil in the daily routine contributes to better elasticity and flexibility of the skin and smoothes the unevenness of the skin. The oil is useful for people with oily skin because it regulates excess sebum. The skin looks cleaner. The appearance of irregularities (acne, wrinkles, etc.) becomes less frequent.
- The oil is an excellent emollient (ie it gives the skin moisture and protects the skin from dryness, cracking, irritation and other damage).
- Hair is prone to various damages. Hair health is especially endangered by unfavorable weather conditions (cold, sharp wind, etc.), blow-drying, frequent hair coloring and treatment with chemicals. This weakens the hair structure in the long run so the hair becomes brittle and brittle (especially at the ends), often falling out. Irritation and dandruff may occur on the scalp. Carrot oil solves and reduces these problems. The oil should be rubbed into the scalp. It stimulates circulation and better blood circulation of the hair roots, which enables hair nutrition. Over time, the use of oil improves the appearance of hair. Hair becomes firmer, shinier, softer and silkier. Hair also grows faster.
