No natural preparation that actually works only on the surface of the skin can be as effective as a surgeon's scalpel, Botox or modern aesthetic medicine treatments. It usually only helps mask the changes associated with aging. This still does not mean that it is not worth using the power of this oil.

“Ironizing wrinkles”, “effect as after a professional treatment costing several thousand”, “effectiveness the same as the most expensive preparations”. No, these assurances of sellers and natural medicine “magicians” can be dismissed as nonsense. This does not change the fact that giving the skin a healthier look, even if only for a short time, makes sense. Pumpkin seed oil will help you with this.

Pumpkin oil – a cheap natural medicine?

Pumpkin oil, pumpkin seed oil, “green gold” – it's the same product every time. To test it, you only need to spend a few zlotys, because many pharmacies offer it in tiny bottles in pure form or in the form of complex preparations at this price.

However, if you plan to use it for a longer time, use it not only on your face, but also on your hair and body – it is not that cheap. A liter of oil costs well over PLN 100. It is often available by mail order, and sometimes you have to pay extra for shipping costs.

Pumpkin seed oil – how to use

Pumpkin seed oil is green-brown in color and has a nutty aroma. Suitable for both food and external use. However, it should be remembered that in its pure form it can stain skin and clothing, so it is recommended to dilute it in water or other oil, and preferably mix it with hydrolate (herbal water).

When used orally, it can be used as a substitute for olive oil and as an ingredient of various dishes that require the addition of cold fat (e.g. salad).

Alternative medicine recommends it as a medicine in the following dosage: 2-3 teaspoons a day (adults). Children are given a teaspoon a day, but we recommend consulting a pediatrician first.
