Treat your skin this season to pumpkin! Packed with minerals and vitamins, a pumpkin facial mask is a great way to brighten, smooth, and firm your complexion.
Pumpkin contains carotenoids (which gives them their beautiful orange color) that helps the skin reverse UV damage and aids in improving skin texture. Vitamin C – also found in pumpkin – helps to protect the skin from free radical damage that may lead to wrinkles or skin cancer. Pumpkins are rich in zinc which helps to maintain collagen, protect cell membranes, fight acne and promote skin renewal. Niacin, B6, folate, and riboflavin – B Vitamins – are also found in pumpkin. B Vitamins help control acne and are known to improve circulation which encourages more rapid cell turnover.
If you feel like your skin could use some renewal, add this DIY Pumpkin Facial Mask to your skin care regimen. Once every other week is ideal – and not just during pumpkin season!
