Remember a few years back when putting oils on your face was a huge no-no and everything was labeled oil-free? Now products with oils, namely of the coconut and argan varieties, are popping up everywhere and have been found to be really good for both skin and hair. The latest in the oil craze is pumpkin seed oil, often known as “green-gold.” This oil, which is so perfect for the fall pumpkin season, can not only be used on salads and in other recipes (it’s recommended to not heat it) but can also be incorporated into your everyday beauty regimen. PSO is rich in vitamins A, B, E and K, and contains omega-3 & omega-6 fatty acids, zinc, and iron—all of which help promote hair growth and health, as well skin care benefits such as anti-aging and perfecting skin tone. You can purchase a bottle of pumpkin seed oil, or try one of these products for the pumpkin-obsessed:
