Benefits of beetroot for skin
Beetroot is rich in minerals and vitamins like iron and vitamin C. Its benefits for the skin are mainly attributed to the vitamin C content. Beetroot is therefore anti-aging and also helps with acne treatment and skin brightening. It has antioxidant, antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties, mentions Healthline. You can also try this homemade vitamin C enriched face pack.
According to a 2018 study published in Frontiers in Physiology, vitamin C can promote the differentiation of keratinocytes (constitutes 90 per cent of the cells of the epidermis or the outermost layer of the skin) and decrease melanin synthesis, leading to antioxidant protection against UV damage. It further prevents skin pigmentation, reducing pores and dark spots.
