Pumpkin Beauty Products We Covet All Year Long
Lattes, Oreos, gum… you’re probably savvy to (or fed up with!) everything pumpkin spice by now.
Whether you’re like us and never waiver in your longing for fall’s favorite flavor or are pretty sure you’re shunning pumpkin flavored everything (milk, beer, even candy corn… ewww) until next year, there is one place pumpkin should stay: in your beauty routine.
The fact is, autumn’s favorite squash can actually do your skin some good.
“Pumpkin is an excellent source of Vitamins A, C and E and contains natural AHAs for exfoliation,” explains Celeste Hilling, Skin Coach of Skin Authority. “When applied to the skin, pumpkin promotes healing, stimulates circulation, and provides vitamin nutrition.”
Aside from promoting natural cell turnover and circulation,”Pumpkin beauty products also restore skin elasticity, which allows ingredients to better penetrate into the skin,” says Hilling. And, if you have problematic skin, you also can expect pumpkin’s natural polyunsaturated fatty acids to help heal wounds, reduce the appearance of stretch-marks, and ease pesky skin conditions like rosacea too.
While slapping on some pumpkin beauty products may not be as tasty as your trusty #PumpkinSpiceLatte, indulging in some pampering beauty favorites may be ideal for your next at-home spa day. Need some pumpkin inspiration? Here are our 9 seasonal favorites to try!
