And with the fall season almost upon us and drier weather quickly approaching, now is a perfect time to give your skin a treat and refresh it’s natural glow by using one of the most popular ingredients of the season.
THE BEAUTY BENEFITS OF PUMPKIN:
Did you know that pumpkin can boost your collagen, increase cell turnover, reduce pore size, and smooth out the texture of your skin? It’s true! Pumpkins have so many AMAZING benefits for our skin. One main benefit is natural occurring fruit acids known as alpha hydroxy acids (AHAs) that sloughs away dead skin cells to exfoliate, allowing topical products to penetrate deeper into the skin.
It also contains antioxidants Vitamin A and C, which brightens sun spots and hyperpigmentation, as well as protects collagen from breaking down due to free radicals. The beta-carotene in pumpkin is a natural enzyme which helps to boost collagen production and reduce the signs of aging. It can also help to reverse UV damage and improve your skin texture.
The zinc and potassium found in pumpkin combat redness naturally, exfoliates, which can help make your skin look more refined. Zinc also regulates excessive sebum, an oil production, which makes it great for those with Acne prone skin.
