Pumpkin is no longer just a food you carve faces into at Halloween or make a pie from. Oh no, this yummy Winter squash also has amazing skin care benefits. Excellent for use on all skin types, but especially if your skin is damaged from environmental conditions, have acne concerns and for managing age effects.
Pumpkin is rich in Vitamin A, which soothes and softens your skin, and Vitamin C, an antioxidant that can help to remedy damage produced by free radicals. Pumpkin facial masks, moisturizers and peels nourish your skin and promote the absorption of these nutrients. Skin-care products containing pumpkin can be used to help remove old surface skin cells and promote new cell production. Pumpkin also contains natural enzymes that help to dissolve dry skin cells.
