Pumpkins are good for so much more than Halloween decorations and Thanksgiving pie. This superfruit can have an amazing impact on your skin. This fall, consider using pumpkin in your skincare routine.
Pumpkin seeds, oil, and pulp are becoming popular ingredients in natural skin care. They contain enzymes that resist the weakening of healthy collagen and elastin fibers. Pumpkin also makes a great exfoliator and the fruit acids help to break up that intracellular glue that binds those old cells to the young healthy ones below. Similar to the effects of retinal, naturally high in vitamin A, pumpkin encourages cellular regeneration to slow down the development of fine lines and wrinkles. The vitamin C in pumpkin strengthens capillaries, stimulates collagen production and protects the skin from free radical damage. In addition, vitamin E and torulitine control oil and repair broken skin.
Pumpkin can benefit all skin types and ages. No other fruit can stimulate the cells, fortify, nourish and protect quite like the pumpkin.
Are you thankful for pumpkin?!
