With fall officially here and Halloween right around the corner, it seems that pumpkin and pumpkin flavored treats are everywhere we look. Fortunately with all of this pumpkin, we can help fight off some of the tricks that cooler weather plays on our skin and reveal glowing new skin.
When it comes to skin-care, pumpkin is probably not something that may have ever even entered your thoughts, but this fruit is packed with essential nutrients and vitamins to promote healthy and radiant skin. Pumpkin can be beneficial for the skin in the following ways:
- Softens dry skin - Exfoliates and moisturizers that contain pumpkin as an ingredient can help remove dead skill cells and promote the production of new cells. The enzymes found in pumpkin are extremely hydrating and can help eliminate dry skin, replacing it with softer, soothing skin.
- Fight acne - The transition into chilly, dry, and windy weather can make your skin prone to acne and more frequent breakouts. Pumpkin contains vitamins E and T, which help to fight acne by reducing pore size, fighting inflammation, controlling excess oil, and preventing blackheads, blemishes, and pimples, leaving you with a smooth face and beautiful glow.
- Revitalize with vitamins - Pumpkin is great for use on all skin types, and even better, it helps skin that has experienced sun damage or damage from other environmental conditions. Being rich in vitamin A and C, pumpkin not only soothes and softens the skin, but the antioxidant properties can actually help remedy damage done by free radicals.
Fall is a great time to give your skin that extra little bit of attention to help reveal healthier, younger looking skin. When looking for a product, look for something with pumpkin, or even better make your own at home.
