For what seems like ALWAYS, fall arrives and with that brings everything pumpkin. Pumpkin-spiced lattes, cookies, and potato chips (!?!?!). But before you judge us of jumping on the Pumpkin Bandwagon, know that pumpkin in skincare is AMAZING, regardless of the season.
Why put pumpkin in skincare?
Pumpkin contains AHA’s (Alpha Hydroxy Acids) which are natural occurring exfoliants. What makes pumpkin rise above the rest (beyond the AHA’s) are the addition of fruit enzymes which combined with AHA’s increase cell turnover, brighten, and help the skin’s overall texture.
Pumpkin contains Vitamins A and C which provide antioxidant protection and help boost collagen production in the skin.
Pumpkin seeds also contain essential fatty acids and Vitamin E. This provides great barrier protection and essential hydration. They also regulate sebum which is ideal for those with oily skin.
Why should you care about our new pumpkin product?
In addition to the fabulous benefits of pumpkin, we’re also bringing cinnamon, ginger, and nutmeg to the mix! And yes, you might be thinking, “Wait, isn’t that just another pumpkin spiced whatever?”. Well, yeah… but when applied in a skincare product, it also does GREAT things for your skin.
Cinnamon: helps bring blood to the surface of skin which then brings plumping and beautiful rosiness to the complexion
Ginger: acts as an anti-inflammatory, helps brighten, is an antioxidant, and helps fight bacteria on the skin
