8 Benefits of Carrot Seed Oil
- Skin Rejuvenator
One of the major beauty benefits of carrot seed oil is its ability to rejuvenate skin. It has a high carotol content, which rejuvenates dull skin cells and breathes new life into them.
- Wrinkle Smoother
Carrot seed oil is an incredible anti-aging essential oil. It’s very useful for preventing premature wrinkles and fine lines. This is because it’s rich in carotenoids, powerful antioxidants, that fight off free radicals, which are the main cause of premature aging!
- Balances Skin Sebum
Both dry and oily skin types can be balanced out using the power of carrot seed oil. It naturally regulates the skin’s sebum production, which prevents too little or excess sebum on the skin. Perfect for a makeup primer!
- Soothes Sun Damaged Skin
Sunburns can be extremely painful and damaging to the skin. Carrot seed oil is actually a very good sunburn soother. It has skin healing properties that restore damaged skin cells and promote cell renewal. Mix up 5 drops of carrot seed oil to ¼ cup of aloe vera gel and smooth this over your sunburn (or find a natural body cream with both to use regularly too)!
- Revitalizes Lifeless Hair
Is your hair looking lackluster and lifeless from quarantine life? You need some carrot seed oil then! It can be added directly to your conditioner bottle for a boost in hair shine and moisturization.
