EXCESS BETA-CAROTENE CAN DISCOLOUR SKIN
Surprised??? Well, it is indeed true if there is an excess of carotenoids.
Carrots are certainly loaded with vitamins and minerals that are good for health. It also has beta carotene, the molecule responsible for the bright orange colour. Excess of it can accumulate in the outermost layer of skin and might result in orange pigmented skin especially on the palms, knees, soles and nasal area. Eating 1 or 2 carrots a day is beneficial to health. So, eat in moderation to avoid unwanted effects.
