Beta-carotene: 3 good reasons to make it your best tanning ally

While carrots are one of the most beneficial vegetables for health, they are also the perfect ally for getting a natural tan! In fact, a beta-carotene-based tanning oil is your ideal summer partner for the tanned complexion you crave.

Beta-carotene is a natural pigment found in plants that gives fruits and vegetables their yellow-orange color. It is undeniably a real asset to your skin and health

1. Beta-carotene, a powerful antioxidant

In fact, beta-carotene as a provitamin A is a powerful antioxidant prized in cosmetics because it allows a slowing down of skin aging by promising elasticity and protection from external aggressions such as pollution and the sun. In addition, it plays an important role in the health of your hair, nails, eyesight and even neurological functioning. 

2. Beta-carotene is also a real tanning enhancer 

 Beta-carotene-based oil is not in its pure state a UV protector, so it's necessary to check that your beta carotene-based tanning oil does protect against UV. However, beta carotene is clinically proven to have a protective action against sunburn

When you are exposed to the sun, your cells start to make a natural pigment, melanin, and it is at this precise moment that the tanning oil will act. Indeed, the beta-carotene it contains will accelerate and strengthen your skin's natural defense mechanism. Thus, the skin will produce melanin faster when exposed to the sun and you will bronze more intensely as a result. 

Beta-carotene therefore has a dual action, it stimulates melanin synthesis, and thanks to its antioxidant power, protects your skin from the harmful action of free radicals. Result: you tan better and faster, what more could you ask for? 

3. The nourishing action of beta-carotene

Finally, the beta-carotene-rich oil, thanks to the fatty acids it possesses, nourishes and protects the skin allowing it to keep its elasticity and prevent it from peeling. You can also boost after-sun hydration with a body lotion to maximize the effects. Thus, with supple and moisturized skin, your tan will be there longer and you can go back to work with a healthy glow and a radiant tan with peace of mind!
