What is Beta-Carotene?
Beta-Carotene is a popular skincare ingredient derived from carrots and other colourful plants and fruits. It has a bright pigment which gives carrots their distinctive orange colour and is classed as a carotenoid and antioxidant. Beta-Carotene is also converted into vitamin A, an essential vitamin that protects cells from the damaging effects of harmful free radicals.
How Beta-Carotene can help your skin…
Having mentioned Vitamin A earlier, Beta-Carotene is converted into this, and is vital for the maintenance of healthy skin with many benefits. Firstly, as it acts as an antioxidant, it helps to reduce the damage caused by pollution, UV light and environmental hazards such as smoking; keeping skin looking youthful and glowing. Another reason for this is that Vitamin A evens out the skin tone by lightening areas of pigmentation. It does this by increasing cell turn over, so more healthy cells are on the skin surface and by stopping an enzyme which is used for melanin production. The results, less brown spots and discolouration and a more even complexion.
Vitamin A, which is converted from Beta-Carotene, is excellent at protecting and repairing damaged skin as it stimulates skin cell growth and collagen production. The more collagen we have, the plumper the skin will appear, and the visible signs of fine lines and wrinkles will be diminished. Those which suffer from skin conditions such as dry skin, psoriasis and eczema, would benefit from using products containing Beta-Carotene, as promoting the growth and repair of body tissues will help the skin to stay stronger and speed up the healing process.
