You need the same beauty products, but in richer formulas to transition your skincare routine into the Fall season, seamlessly. That said, another great trick is to use seasonal ingredients to whip up your skincare solutions, because as is evident, they are built to withstand and thrive in the season; also, they will be easily available and economical, too.
This is exactly why we’re spotlighting pumpkin. The festive vegetable (Halloween, people!) is the perfect go-to during the harvest season, and can be used to make your own hair mask, lip balm, foot scrub, body polish and anti-aging solutions at home.
The Beauty Benefits Of Pumpkin
- Loaded with vitamin A, also known as retinol, it naturally has the key anti-aging component that is used by many commercial brands. Retinol helps maintain the elasticity in the skin and promotes the production of collagen.
- Pumpkins are also packed with vitamin C, which helps reverse the signs of sun damage and reduces the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, dark spots, skin burns, scars and inflammation.
- Make note that pumpkin seed oil restores the moisture in the skin to repair it through extreme hydration.
- The skin of the vegetable is an effective tool to scrub of dead skin cells and rejuvenate the pores.
With all of the above in mind, we venture out on an exploratory trip around the kitchen, to teach you how to whip up multiple beauty solutions using pumpkin as the core ingredient. Scroll on to know all about them.
