Vegetables Are More Than Just Your Dinner
Vegetables are a necessary addition to your diet - no doubt. When we consume them, they fill our bodies with antioxidants from the inside out. Those rich nutrients create glowing skin all while fighting toxins that cause cancer, acne, and other attacks.
Similar to their internal effects though, vegetables make some big moves when used in skin care. Your skin is flooded by the nutrient-rich foods, lock in moisture, and create a beautiful glow. Cold-pressed just like other Leven Rose carrier oils, they are a great addition to your skin care whether used on their own or mixed in with essential oils.
Three Vegetable Oils For Dry Skin And Dry Hair
1. Carrot Seed Oil (Daucus Carota)
Carrot Seed Oil contains natural antibacterial, UV protectant, and anti aging properties. Just like the products created to give your skin a beautiful tone, Carrot Seed Oil does that without adding harmful chemicals! It is non-greasy in addition to it easily absorbing in hair and skin. Also, the vitamin A, E, and beta-carotene gives thicker hair and more hair growth. Carrot Seed Oil is also a great option for a natural face, lip, and hand moisturizer.
This oil is cold-pressed from the seeds of the wild carrot plant. It is a golden, light yellow color and has a slight sweet earthy scent. Carrot Seed Oil could be used with an herbal essential oil to create a scent you like.
2. Watercress Seed Oil (Nasturtium Officinale)
Watercress Seed Oil contains a wide variety of vitamins and antioxidants. From magnesium, calcium, phosphorus, Vitamins B6, B12, A, and folate (to just name a few), this oil is an amazing moisturizer for wrinkle-prone skin and brittle, thinning hair.
Watercress Seed Oil is high in Vitamin C which protects the skin from strong UV rays. When paired with natural sunscreen, Watercress Oil protects the skin, while at the same time, repairing damaged skin.
3. Pumpkin Seed Oil (Cucurbita Pepo)
Pumpkin Seed Oil is golden in color, and is full of carotenoids making this oil great for mature skin that has been exposed to the sun, wind, or other damages from the environment. We know, it's technically a fruit, but it is a great oil for reversing sun damage, wrinkles, and age spots. This nutrient-rich oil will give back elasticity and strength to hair and skin. Plus, it is an incredible healer for psoriasis and eczema.
The scent of Pumpkin Seed Oil depends on seed variation and is mildly spicy, like cinnamon. It could be paired with essential oils to your liking.
