Beetroot, which is the root partition of the beet plant, is an extraordinary vegetable. Beetroot isn’t just healthy (it contains plenty of antioxidants, valuable fibres, vitamins, and minerals), it also has numerous benefits for your skin. You can eat it raw, extract the juice from beets to lighten your skin tone, or make a mask to help with acne and other skin problems. And these are just some of the ways beetroot can improve your skin!
The magic of the beetroot can work from the inside and the outside. Drinking a glass of beetroot juice every day is a natural way to eliminate toxins and to purify your blood. The result will be healthy-looking, glowing skin. You can also apply the juice to your face directly to scrub off dead and dry skin cells for an even more dramatic effect!
Drinking a glass of beetroot juice regularly can help you if you have oily skin and happen to be prone to acne and pimples. The detoxification effect of the juice has skin-enhancing properties that will work from the inside out! For even more beautifying beetroot power, and so you can get rid of acne and blackheads even faster, mix a paste of 2 tablespoons of beetroot juice with 1 tablespoon of curd and apply the paste to your face. The beetroot paste will dry out your acne in no time!
Just as beetroot can help with acne and promote glowing skin, it can also help with dark spots, blemishes, and dark circles under your eyes. Mix equal parts beetroot juice and tomato juice, and apply the mixture to your dark circles using cotton balls. To get rid of your dark circles under the eyes even faster, you can also drink a glass a beetroot juice regularly. Tip: If you don’t like the taste of beetroot juice, add a little carrot or cucumber juice to it.
Beetroot has many benefits for healthier and more beautiful skin, and one of them is that it maintains skin elasticity. Simply drink one glass of beetroot juice per day, and you can greatly delay the appearance of wrinkles and lines!
Use a cotton ball and dab some raw beetroot juice right onto your lips before sleeping. The beautifying effect of the beetroot will give your lips a healthy pink colour, and will make them awesomely soft!
If your skin is getting dry, especially in the colder months, beetroot can help as well. You can make a mask with beetroot juice, milk, and honey. Just apply it onto your face. The beetroot mask will make for very smooth and well-moisturized skin that won’t dry out!
Just a small amount of beetroot juice gives your lips a healthy pink glow, but you can also use beetroot as natural blush! Simply wash your face with beetroot juice once a day and enjoy the healthy-looking effect it has on your skin.
You don’t need to subject yourself to creams and chemicals if you want a fairer skin tone. Simply mix equal parts beetroot juice with lemon juice and apply the mixture to your face at night. Have it do its magic for about 15 minutes, then wash it off with cold water. In just a few days, you will notice your skin becoming a fairer complexion.
You can get rid of dark lines on the neck with beetroot. Apply a mask of beetroot juice and leave it on for about 10–15 minutes. When you’re done with the mask, use ice cubes to gently massage the neck, and then rinse with water.
Beetroot has powerful detoxifying properties and gets rid of waste, including old fat cells that cause cellulite. Mix equal parts beetroot juice with grapefruit juice, which is another cellulite-buster, and drink a glass of the juice every day. You can greatly reduce your cellulite in no time!
