When fall starts rolling in there’s nothing more wonderful than pumpkin. Am I right? Pumpkin on doorsteps, pumpkin baked goods, pumpkin smoothies and who can forget the Pumpkin Spice Latte? But what about pumpkin beauty products? Pumpkin is packed with vitamins and nutrients that are great for skin, so adding pumpkin to your beauty routine is a no brainer.
Here are just a few of the awesome benefits of pumpkin via the International Dermal Institute:
- Pumpkin is packed with fruit enzymes and alpha hydroxy acids (AHAs), which increase cell turnover, to brighten and smooth the skin.
- Pumpkin contains antioxidant Vitamin A and Vitamin C to help soften and soothe the skin and boost collagen production to prevent the signs of aging.
- Zinc in pumpkin seeds is brilliant for acne sufferers. Zinc will help control the hormone level and oil production, as well as assist with healing of the skin.
- Pumpkin seeds are high in essential fatty acids and Vitamin E, which are necessary to maintain good barrier function of the skin. They also regulate sebum, great for an oily skin.
