Why should your taste buds have all the fun? Pumpkins aren’t just for pie.
Feed your seasonal cravings without the calories by trying one of these pumpkin-infused beauty products. Pumpkin is loaded with nutrients and antioxidants. Rich in vitamins A and C, it soothes your skin and helps repair free radical and environmental damage. The natural enzymes and alpha hydroxy alphas in pumpkin remove dead skin cells and help the cell turnover rate of your skin. Its essential fatty acids are great for moisturizing dry skin and hair.
That said, here are a few pumpkin products on our radar. I promise that these gourds will make you gorgeous.
