Pumpkin is no longer just an ingredient you use to make pies on Thanksgiving. When you’re carving a jack-o’-lantern on Halloween, you’re probably not thinking about the skin-care benefits of pumpkin. You may not have realized that pumpkin is rich in important essential vitamins and nutrients necessary for healthy and radiant skin.
Pumpkin is excellent for use on all skin types, but especially if your skin is damaged from environmental conditions such as overexposure to the sun. Pumpkin is rich in vitamin A, which soothes and softens your skin, and vitamin C, an antioxidant that can help to remedy damage produced by free radicals.
