What is so special about vegetables in skin care?
Many vegetables contain high percentages of important vitamins. The smartest way to pick up the right ingredients is to choose them by the highest percentage of vitamin needed:
The vegetables which are highest in vitamin A are carrots, butternut squash, parsley and sweet peppers.
This is a very important anti aging vitamin, which becomes veyr important in today's stressful environment. This vitamin is great for anti aging and acne both - read more about it here.
The vegetables with highest in vitamin C are sweet red peppers (our winner for today!), tomato and radish. this vitamin is great for the cell turnover - many cleansers include this vitamin.
Fresh vegetables and vegetable juices are great cleansers. But if you wish to make a homemade moisturizer - add some oily ingredients to the mask or use cooked vegetables in the mask recipe.
Remember: Even using just one vegetable ingredient will make your skin happy, so you doné have to make a complex mask to perk you skin up!
