Why Pumpkin?

Did you know that pumpkin is packed with fruit enzymes and alpha hydroxy acids that increase cell turnover, leaving the skin brighter and smoother? Or that pumpkin has vitamins A and C that soften and smooth the skin and may boost collagen production? Pumpkin has a small chemical structure that penetrates deep into the skin, bringing all of the benefits with it. This makes pumpkin the perfect ingredient for a face mask

Worried about acne? Pumpkin seeds are a delicious source of zinc, which regulates hormone levels and controls oil on the skin. They also contain vitamin E and essential fatty acids, which are necessary to maintain the skin barrier function and regulate oily output. That’s why this pumpkin mask is a must this fall.
