Ingredient Highlight: Carrot Oil & Beta Carotene

carrots in skincare

Growing up most of us were consistently told to eat our carrots because it helps restore and protect our vision. Is it true? I am not sure, but I wouldn’t be surprised because it also does wonders for your skin! Beta carotene, is a red-orange pigment found in plants and fruits, especially carrots and colorful vegetables.

Carrots are rich in carotene, tocopherols, antioxidants, minerals and vitamin K. Due to its high content of Beta Carotene, it is a precursor to Vitamin A which is responsible for cell regeneration! Cell turn over is essential to turn up the glow in your skin, so adding a little carrot action is a great move to gently increase cell turn over and reveal new and brighter skin.

Carrot oil also has the ability to bring down inflammation which contributes to barrier and tissue damage which then lead to fine lines and wrinkles. We use a mix of Carrot oil, beta Carotene and vitamin C in our Manketti Oil Serum. This mix because of its tocopherol content also protects from the creation of free radicals that cause imbalance and dullness of your complexion.

It’s an all-around great moisturizer and a light serum to add to your skincare routine. And like most vegetables and fruits, if we actually consume them we reap even more benefits from them.  So, I say go for a nice glass of carrot juice as well!

Skincare: Must Haves for Beginners

There are so many products to choose from! But what do I actually NEED?

We understand what that feels like, so lets us help you figure out the basics!


The first thing you will need is a cleanser of course! Many people sleep on the cleanser but in reality how well you cleanse your skin determines how well the other product will work. This becomes even more vital if you often wear makeup.  Your pores can easily be clogged and filled with potential for breakouts. You want to go deep into those pores and clear them out so don’t just get any cleanser. A cleanser that cleans well and does not leave your skin crying from dryness is super important. Many cleansers out there are very harsh on the skin so you need to be selective and make the best choice for your sensitive facial skin. The Gloryscent Enzyme gel cleanser is super gentle and has exfoliating properties to reveal brighter and smoother skin. Give it a try!


Many people are still unmoved by the concept of a toner but let me tell you so important! Toners have the ability to remove the last remnants of residue your cleanser might have left behind. Toners are usually good astringent also minimize the look of enlarged pores! Now, dont you think that is worth the hype. So get yourself a good toner. We don’t have a toner just yet but keep your eye open because it is in the works and it will not be your regular toner sis. We can hardly wait!


Now a serum is a bit more complex to explain because there are so many kinds that play different functions. But I’d say a good and basic serum is one that hydrates and gives you skin a bit of a boost. The ingredient that you’re looking for in a serum is Hyaluronic acid. The Gloryscent Acerola Power serum is a bit more advanced then this but I suppose there is nothing wrong with getting something that works even better than you need it to.


This is also a more complex category but what you need, without question, is a SUNSCREEN. This is not up for discussion it is simply the key to clearer firmer and all around healthier skin in the long run. Sun damage is the cause of darkspots and premature aging so the best way to avoid this is by wearing sunscreen daily–rain or shine.
