Pumpkin is a beauty-boosting superstar as well as a yummy treat we look forward to in the fall. Mmmm...delectable pumpkin flavoured drinks and desserts. YUM! Pumpkin skin care products might just become your next favourite ritual!
A delightful layer of pumpkin face mask not only smells heavenly, but it also leaves your skin silky smooth and deeply hydrated. The benefits range from improving skin nutrition to raising moisture levels and lightening skin tone. Pumpkin pulp and pumpkin seed oil are high in vitamins, minerals, fatty acids, and alpha hydroxy acids (AHAs).
While we know that AHAs are essential for a bright and radiant complexion, since they aid in exfoliation, moisture retention, and the reduction of fine lines and wrinkles, pumpkin is also high in antioxidants and vitamins A and C which help your skin glow.
5 Benefits Of Pumpkin Face Masks
This fall-favourite ingredient is especially helpful as the seasons change, particularly for dehydration and redness caused by dryness. According to Eminence Organics Product Support Team Lead Alicia Hawthorne, "As the seasons change, our skin tends to suffer moisture loss and can use a boost in exfoliation. Whether it’s fine lines and wrinkles, post summer UV exposure, or the change in environment from central heating or air, the skin can usually use a little TLC, and pumpkin is here to help.”
The mighty pumpkin offers five benefits when incorporated into your skin care routine:
- Infuses the skin with bioflavonoids
- Deeply hydrates and plumps the skin
- Stimulates collagen production
- Provides antioxidant benefits
- Delivers beta carotene, amino acids and fruit enzymes to the skin
