Fall Pumpkins and Winter Squash – Feeding Your Skin Inside and Out!!!
While pumpkins and winter squash are often recognized as an important food source of carotenoids, only recently have studies indicated just how wonderful they are in providing key antioxidants. They can even be the best food source of alpha-carotene and beta-carotene in the entire diet! These veggies really wow with high amounts of vitamins A and C, along with healthy vitamins B1, B3, B5 and B6. Their carbs include good pectins important for the collagen and elastin repair of our skin, with fantastic antioxidant effect. Bonus minerals included are potassium, magnesium, iron, calcium, copper and phosphorous. Finally pumpkin and squash seeds make yummy treats high in linoleic acid (omega-6 fatty acid) and oleic acid (Omega 9). We’ve now come to understand how important all these key nutrients are for our greater health and precious skin!!
As the days and night are getting colder and dryer, along with rich diet, our skin needs external feeding with nutrient packed organic moisturizers. Siesta Sunset provides such extra moisture and nutrients like Beta Carotene and Vitamins C and E from healing Sea Buckthorne oil, as well as nurturing Vitamins B, D and E from organic Avocado oil.
Another rich moisturizer to benefit your skin through fall/winter is invigorating Dawn Delight. Its Rosehip oil is vitally rich in Vitamins A and E as well as needed Omegas-6 and Omega 3 (these are very hard for your outer epidermis layer to get just from your diet!). Dawn Delight’s included Green Matcha Tea by weigh contains many times more antioxidants than even blueberries, pomegranates and spinach.
Enjoy your FALL, Family and Friends!
