5 Uses and Benefits of Pumpkin for Skincare

Fall is all about pumpkin! From drinks to desserts, to décor, it seems like everywhere you look, there is pumpkin.  In addition to being a tasty treat and beautiful fall décor, another great way to incorporate pumpkin this season is in your skincare routine. Keep reading to learn the many benefits of pumpkin in skincare! 

Anti-aging benefits 

Pumpkin contains both Vitamin C and beta-carotene, a precursor of Vitamin A. Vitamin A helps to reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and rough texture. Combined, the skin is smoothed, and collagen is strengthened. 
  

Facial Masks 

Pumpkin can work as a highly effective facial mask. Pumpkin facial masks can help to brighten skin and diminish the look of dark spots 

Ingredients: 
2 Tbsp organic canned pumpkin puree or 1 small pumpkin 
1/2 tsp organic honey 
1/2 tsp milk (I used skim, but you can substitute soy or almond) 

Directions 

1: Cleanse skin with your favorite DERMA E facial cleanser.  

2: Mix pumpkin puree, organic honey, and vegan milk in a bowl. If using a fresh pumpkin, remove the seeds. Mix to a creamy pulp with honey and milk. 

3: Apply the mask using your clean fingers or a mask applicator brush. 

4: Allow the mask to set for 15- 30 minutes. 

5: Rinse the mask with warm water and follow with your favorite DERMA E serum and then moisturizer. 

 

Brightening  

Pumpkin is highly effective at brightening the skin. Pumpkin is enriched with alpha hydroxy acids and fruit enzymes which can help to remove dead skin, leaving skin brighter and younger-looking. 

Fights free radicals 

Free radicals can speed up the aging process. Beta-carotene and Vitamin C found in pumpkin can both fight free radicals found in the skin.  

Hydration 

As Pumpkin helps to exfoliate the skin, it allows for skin to be naturally hydrated and moisturized. Our Radiance Glow Face Oil by Sunkissed Alba is enriched with pumpkin oil along with Jojoba, Argan, and Seabuckthorn oil, giving skin a brightened glow.

DERMA E didn’t start out in the beauty aisle or the boardroom. Instead, we began in a small health food store in Southern California. Our first product was a jar of Vitamin E 12,000 I.U. Moisturizing Cream. People were amazed at the results it had on their skin and word caught on.
