Not only is pumpkin a delicious and comforting fall food staple, but it is also an exceptional beauty-boosting ingredient that has found its way into a plethora of skin care products. When you learn more about pumpkin skin care products, they may end up becoming your newest go-to. Regularly incorporating a pumpkin face peel or mask into your skin care routine has long-lasting effects that will transform your skin for the better. Here are some incredible pumpkin face mask benefits you need to know.
The Magic of Pumpkin
Pumpkin pulp or puree and pumpkin seed oil contain plenty of skin-loving nutrients including vitamin A, vitamin C, fatty acids, zinc, antioxidants, tocopherols, sterols, potassium, and magnesium.
Treats Skincare Concerns
A pumpkin mask can be used by people with different skin types, from aging to dull to acne-prone.
- Aging and fine lines: Collagen production is stimulated by the turnover of skin cells. Pumpkins contain an infusion of vitamins A and C which helps stimulate collagen production. More collagen in the skin means softer fine lines and plump, firm skin
- Dull skin: Fruit enzymes in pumpkins can be activated with heat and moisture to produce a thorough exfoliation, a process that dissolves dead skin cells, sloughs off the unwanted buildup of dirt, impurities, and keratin on the surface of the skin. Given that the buildup on the skin makes one’s complexion dull, getting rid of it makes way for bright and glowing skin.
- Acne: Pumpkin exfoliates the skin and unclogs pores. Vitamins A and C are also proven to be effective in combating acne. The unsaturated fatty acids in pumpkin can also soothe red and inflamed skin induced by acne.
Reduces Effect of Sun Damage
Even if you spent the summer wearing hats and slathering on sunscreen, the effects of sun damage can still be present. In the fight against free radical damage, the skin becomes infused with the antioxidants in pumpkins, such as vitamin A and beta carotene. They also deeply exfoliate, resurface and aid in the restoration of photo-damaged skin. The end result? A brighter-looking complexion and lightened pigmentation spots.
