The changing seasons can only mean one thing; pumpkin season is in full effect! Yes, we know it is known for pumpkin spice lattes and pumpkin bread, but let's emphasize pumpkin's healing abilities for your skin. Let pumpkin season commence.

The bright, orange-skinned fruit brings joy to the harvest and your skin. The smoothing and soothing health benefits of pumpkin come from the many enzymes within the seeds and ingredients. These enzymes go to work to increase the regenerative abilities of your skin cells. Pumpkin also contains alpha-hydroxy acids to help brighten your skin this time of the year. Antioxidants from the vitamins in pumpkin help prevent skin damage and signs of aging. Vitamin A is one of nature's most potent antioxidants to maintain the strength and firmness of your skin. Then there's the pumpkin-powered vitamin C that improves your skin with antioxidants and collagen build-up. Vitamin C helps increase your skin's collagen levels just when your body starts to lose that ability. Let's get into the few benefits that pumpkin has on the skin. 


Pumpkin is loaded with Vitamin C, a powerful antioxidant, and beta-carotene, a Vitamin A derivative. These work together on several levels. On one level, they help soften the skin and boost its collagen production to prevent the signs of aging, such as wrinkles, fine lines, and dark spots. On an Antioxidant level, the Vitamin C and beta-carotene work together to reverse UV damage and free radical damage, two significant culprits for wrinkles and, worse yet, skin cancer.

Prevents Blemishes and Breakouts

Along with vitamin C, the vitamin E content in pumpkins protects your skin from the sun's ultraviolet rays, avoiding the dryness, spots, lines, wrinkles, and dangers of too much sun exposure.

Vitamin E also provides your skin with a barrier to maintain essential oils while preventing excess oils. The natural barrier helps people with oily skin avoid blemishes and breakouts with pumpkin power. Helping vitamin E is the zinc in pumpkin seeds that also work to control the hormone and oil production that heals the skin of those with oily skin. Pumpkin also benefits minerals and nutrients such as potassium, calcium, thiamin, folates, and niacin for healthy skin and protection. The fruit also contains a healthy dose of the B-complex vitamins. Add to that the disease-fighting flavonoids and carotenes to help build vitamin A in your skin and body.
