Orange, crunchy and good for your skin. Carrots are a great food to add to your diet if you want younger-looking skin. Carrots are one of the foods with the highest beta carotene content. Beta carotene is a by-product of Vitamin A, formed during the body’s metabolism of certain foods.

Vitamin A is a good supplement to combat skin disorders, like helping treat certain forms of eczema, minimize skin lesions and reduce tumors for nonmelanoma skin cancer.

The vitamin content in carrots also slow down the aging of cells, allowing your skin to retain its youthful looking much longer. It is also a good way to help protect your skin against sun damage. Someone with vitamin A deficiency can have dry skin, hair and nails, leading to easier damage from the sun and the body’s natural aging.

Some other benfits of carrots include:
-Flushing out toxins from your liver
-Reduce cholesterol levels
-Scrape off plaque and food from your teeth and gums
