Collagen Boost, Pumpkin?

Approx 3 minute read |

As autumn sweeps in, along come the cosy jumpers, the shorter days, and Halloween party plans.

With Halloween just a couple of weeks away, pumpkins are everywhere - and whilst you’ll probably purchase one to carve and put on your porch or mantlepiece, this year you might want to consider actually eating some of that pumpkin too…
Pumpkin is exceptionally good for your skin - from the seeds to the flesh, pumpkins are loaded with skin-loving nutrients to revitalise skin, hair and nails, as well as fight the effects of ageing. As pumpkins are high in vitamin C, consumption will help you boost collagen production. Collagen and elastin live in your dermal layer and give your skin the appearance of youth and radiance. The increased promotion of collagen production will improve your skin tone and elasticity.- Global Health & Pharma Magazine
As you may already know, we at WOW are keen advocates of boosting skin collagen to give the appearance of younger, healthier-looking skin, so much so that our founder and CEO Claire Williams brought about improvements in an innovative needling device, the WOW fusion®, improving the shape of the device and the quality of the needles. Designing it to the highest standard in line with our newly acquired ISO 13485:2016 certification.
Claire also believes that a fruit and vegetable-rich diet will support skin health due to the number of natural skin-loving vitamins and minerals that are naturally found in fruit and veg. As someone who suffered with her own skin with cystic acne and rosacea for many years, she has got her own skin back to optimum health and is on a mission to help everyone else do the same.
Pumpkins are a versatile winter squash that can be roasted in the oven, whisked into a spicy soup, easily stirred into pasta dishes, baked into bread or cookies, or simply juiced for an effortless collagen boost for a skin that is bouncier, glowy and healthy

An Even Bigger Collagen Boost

Collagen plays an important role in how your skin looks and feels, and while nutrients naturally found in fruits and vegetables undoubtedly help improve your skin health, they can only do so much and that's exactly why the WOW fusion®️ was created.

The WOW fusion®️ device can help with multiple skincare concerns. Professional WOW fusion®️ practitioners use the device to mix a hyper-personalised cocktail of ingredients based on each individual’s skincare needs and the multiple gold-plated ultra-fine needles do the rest by creating tiny, virtually painless injuries into the skin - that responds by producing more collagen-rich tissue. This newly formed tissue is stronger and firmer, with a smooth and stretchy texture.

In addition to stimulating collagen formation, WOW fusion®️ is also brilliant because the injections in the skin are where the multivitamin complexes are injected. When active ingredients are injected into the skin as opposed to applied topically, they can reach past the superficial layer of the skin, making them far more effective.
