Is pumpkin good for your skin?

Pumpkin, the beautiful orange-skinned fruit harvested in the Fall is great for recipes and to make your skin happy. The numerous enzymes found in pumpkin fruit and seeds provide wonderful smoothing and relaxing health effects. These enzymes act to boost the ability of your skin cells to regenerate.

Pumpkin is high in vitamins and minerals that are good for our general health as well as being packed with skin-loving ingredients making it worth adding to your Eminence Organics skincare routine.

What are the benefits of pumpkin in skincare?

The benefits of pumpkin vary from improving skin nourishment to raising moisture levels and lightening skin tone. Pumpkin pulp and pumpkin seed oil are high in vitamins, minerals, fatty acids, and alpha hydroxy acids, among other nutrients.

Fruit enzymes and AHAs (alpha hydroxy acids) in pumpkins remove dull skin and increase cell turnover for a smoother, brighter complexion. They also include antioxidants like beta-carotene and vitamin C, which can aid with reducing the appearance of dark spots, wrinkles, and even UV damage.

On top of that, pumpkins are high in zinc, which aids in the treatment of acne and scars.

As the seasons change, our skin loses moisture and might benefit from an exfoliating boost. Whether it's fine lines and wrinkles, post-summer UV exposure, or the transition from central heating to air conditioning, the skin can always need some work, and pumpkin can assist.

Top 5 Benefits of Pumpkin in Skincare

  • Bioflavonoids are infused into the skin.
  • Skin is deeply hydrated and plumped.
  • Collagen formation is stimulated.
  • Antioxidant effects are also provided.
  • Beta carotene, amino acids, and fruit enzymes are delivered to the skin.

Anti-Aging Benefits

Vitamin C, a potent antioxidant, and beta-carotene, a Vitamin A derivative, are abundant in pumpkin. They soften the skin and increase collagen formation, which helps to avoid wrinkles, fine lines, and dark spots. Vitamin C and beta-carotene act synergistically as antioxidants to repair UV damage and free radical damage, two major causes of wrinkles and, worse, skin cancer.

Pumpkins' vitamin E content, in addition to vitamin C, protects your skin from the sun's UV rays, preventing the dryness, spots, lines, wrinkles, and other side effects of too much sun exposure.

Prevents Acne Breakouts

Vitamin E also acts as a barrier on your skin, allowing vital oils to remain while superfluous oils are prevented. The natural barrier helps those with oily skin avoid blemishes and outbreaks. Zinc in pumpkin seeds assists vitamin E by controlling hormone and oil production. Pumpkin also contains minerals and elements that promote good skin and protection, such as potassium, calcium, thiamin, folates, and niacin. The fruit also provides a good source of B-complex vitamins.
