The Quickie: A Little Pumpkin Seed Oil Post

For the love of Pumpkin Seeds, when I’m not stuffing them in my mouth, I'm slapping it all over my face and hair! pumpkin seed oil is moisturising for dry skin types and it also soothing for sensitive skin it and promotes hair growth.
The vitamin in Pumpkin seed oil can;

    • Zinc found in the seeds help maintain collagen levels naturally for more elasticity.
    • Zinc and selenium fight acne without harsh chemicals or side effects.
    • Vitamin A stimulates new skin cell growth and repairs your existing skin damage.
    • Essential fatty acids in pumpkin seeds help control the production of oils while maintaining moisture levels.
    • Selenium also provides natural environmental and UV protection to prevent further skin damage.
    • Vitamin E helps even out skin tone and minimizes the appearance of existing scars. 

Pumpkin Seed Oil can promote hair growth and may be a key to stopping hair loss  as the seed oil can inhibit the enzyme known as 5-alpha reductase enzyme, which has been shown to slow and stop hair growth by producing DHT from testosterone. Pumpkin seed oil also hydrates the hair follicles promoting a healthy base for growth
 I get my pumpkin seed oil from The Sheabutter Cottage www.sheabuttercottage.com

The Glow: Fitglow Beauty Vita Active Foundation

I've been on a bit of a journey of beauty discoveries of late due mostly to my discovery of Eco Diva Beauty, which is a one stop shop for all things eco and beauty! [go figure] I was kindly sent a whole bunch of products many that aren't readily available in the UK to test out and give my opinion on [it's a hard job but someone has to do it!] I'm going to share a few of my favourites over s series of posts. First up a product that I am very impressed with from  Fitglow Beauty I was sent their foundation and mascara. I'm IN LOVE with the Fitglow Beauty Vita Active foundation in V47, it merges their vitamin rich skincare into a foundation that does more than just give you perfect looking skin.
