Confinement, anxiety, overeating, lack of sunshine... In recent months, they've taken away our radiance. It's time to leave all that behind and get ready for the good times. Our best allies for a healthy glow and a peachy tan will be carrots and oranges. 

Carrots are the main source of beta-carotene in our diet. A powerful antioxidant, it is also an excellent source of vitamin A, one of the most versatile vitamins, playing a major role in skin health. The carrot must be eaten raw in order to reap its benefits. It is important to choose fresh carrots with an intense and shiny colour to take advantage of all their health benefits.

Oranges are also considered to be a natural beauty product because they are so good for the skin. High in vitamins E, C and antioxidants, orange stimulates collagen production and strengthens your skin, helping it to fight against external aggressions. It helps your skin to stay hydrated and healthy. It is ideal for rebuilding the skin and repairing damaged tissues.
