Oily carrot macerate: the ally of sunny days!

We are in the middle of the spring season and within a month, it will be summer's turn to show up. It's usually during these seasons that we most want to look good and fill up on vitamin D. But the sun is not always our best friend... In high exposure and without protection, its actions can be harmful to our health and our skin. Thus, limiting our exposure, especially at certain times is strongly advised. If you still want to expose yourself, you will absolutely need to apply sunscreen with a sufficiently high SPF.

For those who would like to have a tanned complexion , without going through the exposure box, UV cabin or self-tanner, we recommend a natural and perfect product: the oily carrot macerate

Zoom on this ingredient, which at BeautyMix, we particularly like!

All about this miraculous oil!

The oily carrot macerate is reputed to give those who use it a tanned complexion. It is also known for its anti-oxidant actions, in anticipation of skin aging. It also has the property of softening the skin .

So you can add it to your face creams, body milk, scrub, etc. Also as after-sun to maintain the tan created by the sun. But also as a nourishing treatment for all skin types, especially mature . It is therefore highly recommended for dull complexions, skin in the mature phase, lacking vitality.

Generally, it is obtained with only two ingredients : carrot roots and organic sunflower oil.

Thanks to sunflower oil, oily carrot macerate is rich in:

  • Polyunsaturated essential fatty acids or vitamin F

  • Monounsaturated fatty acid

  • Saturated fatty acid

With carrot roots, the following properties are also present:

  • B-carotene

  • Triglycerides

These last two give the skin the healthy glow due to the color of the macerate. B-carotene is also known for its antioxidant action. Triglycerides, on the other hand, have a softening action.

This oil is liquid in appearance, limpid and slightly cloudy. It is orange in color. Its smell is highly appreciated because its vegetal notes are tangy. It keeps well in a cool place. Avoid exposure to light as this oil can quickly oxidize.

Step two : lay them flat and let them air dry for several hours. This is to empty them of the water they contain and prevent them from molding.

Step three : once the strips are dry, put them in a glass jar and cover them with sunflower oil, covering them completely. 

Step four : Cover your jar with a lid. Let them macerate for three to four weeks.

Step five : four weeks later, filter your macerate using a classic strainer, thus retaining the carrot strips. Ideally, your oily macerate should be poured and stored in a glass container.
