The many weather changes often bring in a host of pros and cons for your skin. Dealing with breakouts, wrinkles, and dehydrated skin seems a lot to handle in one shot. However, when you find a cheat sheet that does the job for you with a plant-based solution, it’s worth taking the plunge for your skin. Pick skin-friendly essential oils for these can serve as prudent choices as they entail lightweight textures and heal your skin with much care. With the K-beauty championing skin care products with ingredients like snail mucin, ginseng, liquorice root, and others, carrot seed oil has also been favoured for its mighty powers. 

 

Carrot seed oil is derived from the Daucus carota, a flowering plant also referred to as wild carrot. It’s endemic to Europe and ventured into other continents over time. This essential oil houses Vitamin A, antioxidants, anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties that aid in combating signs of aging, reducing wrinkles, hydrating dry skin, and soothing acne.
