It’s no secret that carrot juice is full of skin-healing beta carotene; however, it is not often that you hear of the topical benefits of this healing juice. When you use carrot juice both internally and yes, externally, it will help to combat acne breakouts and speed the healing of scars caused by acne.
Things You'll Need
Purchase fresh, large, organic carrots when using them for their medicinal benefits. Store carrots in the refrigerator and wash them with a vegetable brush instead of peeling. Because the largest concentration of vitamins and minerals live near the surface of the carrots, you loose the healing benefits when you strip off the peel.
Juice 4 or 5 large carrots and drink each day on an empty stomach. Taking carrot juice internally ensures that your body gets a vitamin and mineral packed drink every day, and in just a few short weeks you should see amazing results, including a reduction of acne outbreaks and faster healing of scars.
Mix just enough carrot juice with 1 tsp. of sea salt and massage the paste into areas affected by acne and acne scars. Use gentle, circular motions as to not damage the skin, and then leave the paste on the skin until it dries. Rinse with warm water and pat dry. This acne scar treatment is gentle enough to be used daily, and will help to remove the top layer of scarred tissue while promoting the growth of new, healthy skin.
Dab pure carrot juice onto pimples after thoroughly washing your face. The carrot juice will help to speed healing of the pimple and prevent scars before they form. Always use fresh carrot juice and leave for as long as possible before rinsing.
