Pumpkins aren’t just beneficial for your taste buds…they are REALLY good for your Skin too. Apart from being the most popular latte at Starbucks and of course carved out lanterns for Halloween, it’s pumpkin season 🎃 and we couldn’t be more excited! The smell, taste and decor of pumpkin is literally everywhere! But besides tasting delicious and smelling wonderful; did you know that pumpkin is a great antioxidant for your skin. In fact, pumpkin has over 100 nutrients in it that can help restore and heal your skin!
PUMPKIN 411: EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT PUMPKIN SKIN BENEFITS
Did you know that pumpkin is such a powerful source of antioxidants that it:
- Boosts your collagen
- Brightens your skin
- Increases cell turnover
- Reduces pore size
- Smooths out the texture
It’s true! And with the fall season already upon us the weather is becoming a bit chilly. Okay, so not so chilly in deep South Texas, but we will start to notice a drop in temperature soon, and our skin does change with the seasons. As we start to get drier weather you may notice that your skin may start to feel a bit on the dry side, but you can give your skin a treat and refresh its natural glow by using one of the most popular fruit of the season (…thanks StarBucks ☕️).
SO WHAT EXACTLY ARE THE BENEFITS OF PUMPKIN:
Have you ever wondered what makes pumpkin pie so orange? It is the miracle antioxidant, beta-carotene, that converts to Vitamin A which plays a gigantic role in your having good health and great skin.
The beta-carotene in the pumpkin is what gives it that red-orange color which makes it look so nice in the fall. But besides enhancing color, beta-carotene is also a natural enzyme. The powerful anti-oxidant pack a double punch because it helps to boost your immune system when consumed internally, but also reduces oxygen damage to cells brought on by free radicals and other toxins, which helps boost collagen production and reduces signs of aging.
Pumpkin is packed with fruit enzymes and alpha hydroxy acids (AHAs), which increase cell turnover- shedding away dead skin cells- which in turn brighten and smooth the skin. Vitamin A and Vitamin C are also found in pumpkin, and these nutrients will help soften rough skin texture, soothe the skin, and brighten the skin giving it that natural glow we all desire.
The zinc found in pumpkin can naturally protect your skin from the ultra violet rays (UVA’s), reduce your pore size and help make your skin look more refined. Zinc regulates excessive sebum, an oil production which helps to reduce acne in the skin.
TREAT YOUR SKIN WITH A (PUMPKIN SPICE) LATTE FACIAL:
