Pumpkins are one of the most popular ways to celebrate Fall, but they're also packed with skin-loving ingredients that will upgrade your beauty routine.
Pumpkin season is here and that means you'll inevitably spot the orange fruit in literally everything. It's how we celebrate Fall. But pumpkins aren't just for eating, they're also packed with skin-loving nutrients worth adding to your beauty routine. Pumpkins contain fruit enzymes and AHAs (alpha hydroxy acids) that work to buff dead skin and boost cell turnover for a smoother and brighter complexion. They also have beta-carotene and vitamin C, antioxidants that can help rid skin of dark spots, wrinkles or even sun damage. On top of all that, pumpkins also contain loads of zinc, which helps target acne and scarring. If you see pumpkin as one of the main ingredients in a face mask or skin treatment, it's not just a fall gimmick.
