Beauty-food Advent calendar – Door number 7

What’s behind door number 7?

A carrot.

Carrots are a great source of antioxidant carotenoids betacarotene, lutein and lycopene; which protect and repair UV damage, and also help to keep skin smooth.

How will you eat your carrot today? Try roasting with other root vegetables, or make a carrot and coriander soup.

Top tip: lightly cooked carrots deliver more betacarotene than raw ones.
