PUMPKIN BEAUTY BENEFITS

OUTSIDE: SKIN LIGHTENING PUMPKIN FACE MASK

Sun spots and age spots are one of the most annoying signs of aging. Anyone else regretting their time in the sun this summer? It’s never too late to get serious about wearing sunscreen, and you can also take steps to reduce hyper-pigmentation and reverse the signs of sun damage on your face. The perfect pampering ingredient? Pumpkin.

It brightens dull skin: Pumpkin is an excellent exfoliator. Its fruit enzymes and alpha hydroxy acids (AHAs) slough off the dead skin that leads to a dull complexion, leaving you with a brighter, glowing complexion.

It fades sun spots: Pumpkin is rich in vitamin A, the anti-aging ingredient you’ll find in retinal products. That makes pumpkin perfect for a face mask to lighten age spots and even out skin tone.

It smooths fine lines: You’ll also get a dose of vitamin C and beta-carotene with pumpkin, both of which support collagen production to improve skin tone and texture.

Add a squeeze of lemon juice to lighten dark spots while yogurt exfoliates and promotes cell turnover.

INSIDE: HORMONE BALANCING PUMPKIN SPICE LATTE

Pumpkins not only taste sweet and delicious, but they’ll also give you an internal boost of vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants. Especially the antioxidant beta-carotene, which gives pumpkins their orange color. The body converts beta-carotene into vitamin A, which protects against the signs of aging just as much on the inside. Since beta-carotene is a fat soluble organic compound its absorption is enhanced if eaten with fats.
