Carotenoid-rich gazpacho for the skin
This is our “Carotenoid-rich gazpacho for the skin” recipe. We want to eat carotenoids because it is a group of antioxidants that have a protective effect on the skin. For example, beta-carotene belongs to the group of carotenoids and is converted into vitamin A in the body when needed. When your source of beta-carotene comes from carrots (the best source), your liver takes two to four hours to produce vitamin A, which is then transported to your skin. The right dose of vitamin A is important for the skin in several ways: it stimulates collagen formation in the dermis and supports the renewal of the epidermis. The amount of collagen in the skin tends to decline as we age, while epidermal regeneration slows down. This means that foods rich in vitamin A and beta-carotene are a kind of antidote to aging.
You'll find carotenoids in carrots, tomatoes, oranges, curly kale, spinach, salmon, shrimps, and microalgae.
