Benefits of Pumpkin Skin Care Products for Your Complexion

Ingredient spotlight: Pumpkin

The onset of autumn means pumpkin is popping up in everything from your morning latte at the coffee shop to fresh-baked muffins at the grocery store. When it comes to skincare, though, pumpkin isn’t just a novelty. This seasonal squash is packed with potent agents that, when featured as ingredient in skin products, can improve the health and appearance of your complexion.

The naturally occurring enzymes and alpha hydroxy acids in pumpkin are highly effective at exfoliation. Those enzymes work to break down the oil and debris dwelling on the surface of your skin that can clog pores and lead to breakouts. Alpha hydroxy acids do a stellar job boosting cell turnover, which translates to brighter, more radiant skin.

Pumpkin is also a serious overachiever in the nutrition department, containing vitamins A, C, E and zinc to nourish skin and protect against damaging free radicals that can contribute to irritation and aging.

Ready to get into the fall spirit and see some brilliant benefits? Give these pumpkin-packed skincare products a try:

LovelySkin Pumpkin Clarifying Mask: Featuring pumpkin extract to moisturize, exfoliate and shrink enlarged pores, this mask also has self-warming properties that make it the perfect skincare treat during chilly autumn weather. Pair it with a cup of tea or hot cocoa and your warmest socks for a DIY spa night!
