We are steadily going further into the fall season, and as the weather changes it is important to adjust your skin care routine. The chill and winds of autumn present a different challenge than the overbearing heat of summer. Luckily enough, there is a common seasonal item that is perfect for helping skin through autumn. This autumn consider working pumpkin and pumpkin products into your skin care routine!
The International Dermal Institute lists many benefits of pumpkin for the skin. Did you know that the fruit enzymes and alpha hydroxy acids in pumpkins increase cell turn over, which brightens and smooths skin? Pumpkins also contain antioxidant Vitamin A and Vitamin C. These vitamins can soften and smooth your skin. Additionally, these vitamins help fight signs of aging by boosting collagen production.
If you suffer from acne, pumpkins can be of great help. Pumpkin seeds contain zinc, which helps control both hormone levels and oil production. Zinc can also help with healing skin. The seeds are also high in essential fatty acids and Vitamin E. These help to maintain good barrier function on the skin and also regulate sebum, which is particularly helpful for those with oily skin.
Another reason pumpkin is so effective in treating the skin is because the molecular structure of pumpkin is small, allowing it to penetrate the skin more deeply when applied topically. This makes pumpkin an excellent treatment for those with dull complexions, aging skin, or pigmentation issues. Pumpkin flesh can be used directly on skin or can be used as an ingredient in your home-made exfoliating scrubs, faces masks, or moisturizers.
