Pumpkin Seed – The Skin Superhero You Need To Know About
Why are Pumpkin Seeds a skin superhero?
Pumpkin seeds are known to be super rich in fatty acids, generally you’ll recognise the seeds being sprinkled over your breakfast in the mornings or snacked on during the day to up your Omega intrinsically.
Carrying high levels of natural AHA’s, Vitamin A / B6 / C this simple ingredient does wonders for your skin, hair & nails from softening and smoothing to stimulating cell turn over, brightening the surface of the skin, boosting collagen and all round glow enhancer!
Will Pumpkin Seeds work with my skin type?
As with some products it’s trial and error as to whether your skin takes to the ingredient or doesn’t. That being said I have used Pumpkin Seed Oil, exfoliants & masks on my clients with all skin concerns and found fantastic results.
