Beetroot contains the anti-ageing hero ingredient lycopene - a powerful antioxidant that encourages skin elasticity through collagen production and which, due to ability to protect against harmful UV rays, is described as nature's sunscreen. Beetroot is also a diuretic (it promotes the production of urine) and, as such, assists the body's natural detoxification process by eliminating harmful toxins that speed up the ageing process.
