Pumpkin & Shea soap benefits for Eczema Psoriasis

Benefits of Pumpkin for skin Since psoriasis is an inflammatory condition, many individuals have reported success by adding it to their diet and skincare products.

Zinc the key ingredient in Pumpkins and their seeds.

  • Zinc may ward off acne flare-ups:  Pimples develop when a buildup of oil, bacteria and skin cells block pores, causing the skin around the pore to turn red, swollen and tender. Zinc, which boosts immune function, may help control that inflammatory response. Because zinc regulates cell production and turnover, and can help reduce the amount of natural oil your skin produces, it may prevent pores from clogging in the first place.

  • Zinc can help clear up dry, itchy skin. Zinc's anti-inflammatory properties calm irritation and relieve itchiness, which is helpful if you suffer from psoriasis, eczema, or dandruff. Many cases of psoriasis, an itchy, scaly condition of the skin that may be a fungal infection of some kind, can be improved by getting a proper intake of zinc. Eczema is also often linked to a zinc deficiency.

  • Zinc helps heal rashes and other sores. Zinc reduces inflammation, regulates immunity and may stimulate the production of new cells. It’s also an anti-microbial, which can soothe and treat skin quickly; research suggests it may shorten the duration and reduce the severity of a cold sore, for example.

Pumpkin seeds

  • high in zinc, selenium, and essential fatty acids, among many other healthy vitamins and minerals that keep our skin looking the best it can.

  • Specifically, though, the zinc, selenium, and essential fatty acids in pumpkin seeds play large roles in skin and wound healing, acne prevention, connective collagen maintenance, protection from environmental stressors and damage, and promoting healthy skin moisture to combat dry and rough patches that accompany psoriatic lesions2.

Vitamin E

  • Present in pumpkin seeds and acts as an antioxidant. It is also directly related to aiding skin conditions such as psoriasis and eczema.

  • Pumpkin oil contains even more concentrated amounts of vitamin E as well!

  • Pumpkin seeds have also been shown to have arthritis-fighting properties similar to some anti-inflammatory medications, and could also play a role in fighting depression since they contain high levels of tryptophan (a precursor to serotonin).
