What Does Pumpkin Do For Your Skin?
Pumpkin has some impressive benefits for your skin including anti-aging, hydration, brightening, and restorative effects. The enzymes in pumpkin are key to helping skin cells regenerate and repair for your best skin.
- Anti-Aging Benefits
Those pumpkin enzymes along with its bounty of alpha hydroxy acids (AHAs) are responsible for busting up those dead skin cells. This speeds up cell regeneration to give you smoother, glowing skin. These enzymes are rich with antioxidant vitamins A and C that refine skin to reduce fine lines and wrinkles.
That orange color you notice most about pumpkins reveals its beta-carotene content which can boost your collagen production too. Additionally, it helps reverse damages caused by UV rays and improve the appearance of dark spots.
- Skin Hydration
If your skin tends to feel drier with the fall weather, turn to pumpkin for skin hydration. The same antioxidants that can help with fighting the signs of aging also help soften and soothe dry skin. Along with essential fatty acids and vitamin E, skin is nourished and full of life.
With alpha hydroxy acids and fruit enzymes, it’s the perfect match to help brighten up dull skin. By removing those dead skin cells, pumpkin helps your skin look brighter and younger too.
- Fight Free Radicals
Free radicals are attacking your skin at every turn, speeding up the aging process. With pumpkin’s high content of vitamin C and beta-carotene, it fights those free radicals away, reversing the damages caused by UV damage and renewing the health of your skin.
