This season, we’re crazy about pumpkins! This fall favorite has moved on from just being a canvas for kids spooky designs or a delish dessert, the round, orange beauties are also known to make skin glow. Did you know that pumpkins are jam packed with vitamins and minerals that help promote healthy, glowing skin? Each jack-o-lantern carries loads of fruit enzymes and alpha hydroxy acids (AHAs), which help increase cell turnover to brighten and smooth all skin types. We bet you have heard of AHAs before, but what are they exactly?
They are a natural substance that can be found in various fruits and have been found to help repair dry or sun-damaged skin. AHAs can also help reduce the appearance of fine lines and discoloration. Other antioxidants that can be found in this fall treasure are vitamins A, C, & E. Vitamin A promotes smooth skin, while vitamin C helps repair any damage done by free radicals, which can speed up aging and wrinkles. Vitamin E helps treat any dark spots that have appeared on the skin along with acne fighting benefits.
Pumpkin facial products (like masks, moisturizers, exfoliants, etc.) help:
- Fight inflammation
- Reduce pore size
- Control excess oils
- Prevent the appearance of blemishes
- Repair dry or sun-damaged skin
