October and the fall season are in full swing!
This means… all things pumpkin! The delicious pumpkin spice lattes are brewing, and the candles are burning. A personal fall favorite snack is roasted and salted pumpkin seeds. However, one thing we often forget is how powerful an aid pumpkin is for our skin health!
Pumpkin is packed with powerful antioxidants and vitamins.
As a fruit, pumpkin naturally carries Vitamin E, C, and Beta-carotene (a derivative of Vitamin A), providing nutrition to our skin.
•Beta-carotene is turned into Vitamin A in our body. Vitamin A helps reduce the appearance of fine lines and aging by increase the process of cell turnover. This may also help with reducing the surface damage from UV rays. In addition, it removes dead skin cells, while leaving a smooth and radiant texture to the skin. It also helps control the overproduction of oils on the skin.
• Vitamin E helps lock in moisture and keep your skin hydrated and plump throughout the day. It also helps protect your skin barrier and protects it from free radicals and sun damage.
• Vitamin C is well known for being a fabulous agent for brightening and tightening the skin. However, it also helps reduce inflammation and promotes healing.
The benefits don’t stop there…
•Pumpkin contains fruit enzymes and AHA (Alpha Hydroxy Acids), which makes it a natural exfoliator to remove dead skin cells and brighten dull skin.
•Zinc is also very prominent in fresh pumpkins. Zinc is potent in decreasing signs of sun damage and fighting blemishes.
