Winter is a lovely season. The holiday vibe, breezy evenings, cosy homes, everything feels and looks beautiful around, except our skin and hair. As the climate drops, our skin and hair take a turn for the worse. Dry and patchy skin, rough and lifeless hair with the itchy scalp - most of us face these problems this time of the year. The worst part is that we are too lazy and cold to take on special measures like regular oil massage, face packs etc. Winters stop us from putting in extra efforts in our beauty regime, but this is the only time we love to eat. So, why not take care of our beauty needs through our diet?
Carrot and beetroot soup is the best winter meal you can have for all your skin problems. Both carrot and beetroot are winter-special foods, so you'll get them all-fresh this season. The warming soup imbued with the nutrition of carrots and beets is something you'll definitely like.
Carrot Benefits For Skin And Hair
Apart from containing immunity-boosting antioxidants and vitamin C, the carrot is a good source of vitamin A, beta-carotene and silicon content, all of which help boost skin, hair and nails.
Just like carrot, beetroot is also rich in vitamin C. The dark pink vegetable also provides a good amount of vitamin A, calcium and iron.
