The Amazing benefits of Pumpkin for your Skin and Body
Fall is here! The air is starting to feel a bit more crisp, you’re probably dusting off your old trusty Ugg boots and making your way to Starbucks for your favorite, THE one THE ONLY, Pumpkin Spice Latte. Pumpkin is everywhere right now but it’s more than just some silly trend. Low and behold the signature fall vegetable “Pumpkin” is actually jam packed with vitamins & minerals including Vitamin A, B, C, E & Beta-carotene…lucky for you.
So what exactly does that mean for your skin?
Pumpkin is great to use on all skin types but is especially wonderful for those of us with dry skin. It’s rich in Vitamin A which helps soothe and soften any dry or rough patches from either your environment or over exposure to the sun. Vitamin C helps prevent your skin from free radicals that cause wrinkles, premature signs of aging and even skin cancer (wow!). Vitamin C also promotes collagen production which is a big part of keeping and maintaining your skins natural elasticity. Pumpkin is rich in the B vitamins as well. Niacin (a B Vitamin) helps improve circulation and is known to treat acne.
Pumpkin is not only great for skin but has tremendous health benefits.
When consuming the all loving vegetable, your body will get lots of beneficial minerals such as potassium, magnesium, manganese, copper and iron. All of those minerals help promote hair regrowth, skin renewal, collagen production and even fight acne.
