Not only do pumpkins remind us that colder weather is coming and that our favorite Starbucks drink will soon be available but it is also a key ingredient in many beauty products. Pumpkin is packed with vitamins A and C, which soften and brighten skin as well alpha hydroxy acids (AHAs) which help boost cell turnover helping in the exfoliation process. Pumpkin enzymes are especially gentle on skin so there’s no need to worry about redness or irritation making it ideal for even the most sensitive skin types. These are a few of our preferred pumpkin infused products to help you get your glow on.
