Pumpkin- this, pumpkin - that, pumpkins, pumpkins everywhere! In coffee, in pie (mmm, pie), decorations, smoothies, ice cream...Can a girl catch a break?!
Growing up, I was never a huge pumpkin lover, but somewhere in adulthood, I'm not going to lie, it's grown on me. I love the occasional pumpkin latte! The question is, is pumpkin really worth all the fuss?
Honestly, yes. Maybe not with all the added sugar and creamer, but the enzymes in pumpkin have huge benefits on our bodies and more shockingly, our SKIN!
So, let's chat about the benefits this famously fall ingredient can have on our skin and why it can benefit us in so many ways, no matter what the season.
Pumpkin pulp is soothing & healing and does a great job calming skin between treatments.
A weekly mask is a MUST when the weather turns cold. It will help to rebuild the barrier broken down during harsh weathered months!
Natural AHA gently exfoliates to remove superficial dead skin cells while minimizing the appearance of pores. Vitamins work to heal skin – easy as pie ;)
According to livestrong.com other pumpkin benefits are:
"exfoliators and moisturizers can be used on all skin types to help remove old surface skin cells and promote new cell production. Pumpkin contains natural enzymes that help to dissolve dry skin cells"
"If you suffer from acne, Pumpkin contains the acne fighting vitamins E and T, more commonly known as torulitine. Pumpkin skin toners, peels and anti-acne masks promote healthier skin by fighting inflammation, reducing pore size, controlling excess oil and preventing the appearance of pimples, blackheads and blemishes"
So, CHEERS to pumpkin being back in the forefront of our lives for the next few months! Be sure to take advantage of all of its skin-healing, acne-fighting, pore-reducing benefits!
