Use Pumpkin Seed Oil for Glowing, Healthy Skin

We don’t have to get very far into fall before I start craving pumpkin stuff. Muffins, soup, lattes…so yummy and comforting.

Did you know that pumpkin is also good for skin? That’s right, and many organic beauty brands like the seed oil for its beauty bennys.

Pumpkin Seed Oil works well on most skin types:

Mature Rich in vitamin A, nature’s Retinol. This vitamin does a great job at reducing fine lines, smoothing skin, and evening out discoloration. The oil also contains a hefty dose of antioxidants to fight free radicals and prevent premature aging.

Dry If you are looking for nature’s perfect exfoliant, pumpkin seed oil is it. The oil contains a natural enzyme that dissolves dead skin cells, ideal on dry, calloused feet. It is also high in essential fatty acids to deliver moisture to sapped skin.

Acne The oil from the seasonal staple is a good acne fighter, reducing inflammation and clearing pores.

Try these natural beauty products that contain Pumpkin Seed Oil:

By one of my favorite haircare brands, Acure Organics Shampoo Moroccan Argan Oil + Argan Stem Cell contains plenty of hydrating oils, including Pumpkin Seed Oil

Acure Organics Ultra Hydrating Body Wash also contains a healthy dose of Pumpkin Seed Oil to moisturize skin while cleansing

Get your complexion in top condition with Pumpkin Cocoa Honey Mask by Wild Honey Apothecary.

Put Pumpkin Seed Oil’s exfoliating and softening properties to work with Suti Fabulous Organic Foot Balm.

Anti aging at its finest, use Vered Organic Botanicals Anti-Wrinkle Eye Treatment with Pumpkin Seed Oil

Want perfect skin instantly? You’ve got it with Vapour Stratus Instant Skin Perfector, containing Pumkin Seed Oil

Don’t forget your man, Oli Biologique makes Whisker Oil with Pumkin Seed Oil

Added bonus: This one is not for skin, but it’ll make you happy. I found this organic coffee creamer recipe a few years ago and there is a pumpkin version. Go ahead and give a try. Delish!
