My 4 Favorite Pumpkin Skincare Products
Pumpkin season is is full effect! From pumpkin decor, to pumpkin spiced latte's, to trendy fall hats and boots-You know fall is here You can even find a wide range of pumpkin based skincare products. It’s a good thing we can find these products all year round, because pumpkin actually has quite a few benefits for the skin.
There are many nutritious and beneficial components pumpkin contains, but the ones your skin loves the most are the exfoliating agents (alpha hydroxy acids and fruit enzymes aka AHA's), antioxidants (vitamin C, beta-carotene, lycopene…) and acne fighting ingredients (such as zinc).
That’s more than enough reason to add pumpkin to your skincare game. If you are not sure where to start, here are a few products I personally love and recommend:
If you want a face mask that radiates fall vibes and can help you rejuvenate and restore your skin after the summer, look no further. This mask is probably my favorite out of the four. It is gentle but efficient and it leaves the skin soft, smooth and radiant.
Pumpkin Enzyme Mask gently exfoliates the skin, both physically and chemically. It purifies the skin, brightens dull complexion, reduces fine lines and it can even help prevent acne breakouts.
Cleansing is one of the most important skincare steps as it removes all the debris, makeup and excess sebum and prepares the skin for the following steps. You need a quality cleanser to do just that, but without stripping your skin of necessary oils.
This face wash is gentle enough so you can use it twice a day. It also gently exfoliates thanks to the AHAs and fruit enzymes (pumpkin, papaya and pineapple) it contains.
If your skin is congested and acne prone or you want to add an extra exfoliating step to brighten the dull looking complexion, this Intensive Pore Exfoliating Treatment might be your gem. Try using it once or twice a week and you’ll soon notice some serious improvement in your skin’s texture and appearance.
This scrub can help you treat several skin issues, including large pores, fine lines and crow’s feet. It also improves the effect of all the products you use because the exfoliated skin will absorb them much better.
In the end, every skincare routine could use a good vitamin C serum, especially one formulated with other antioxidants such as vitamin E and ferulic acid. Antioxidants eliminate the negative effect of free radicals and keep your skin healthy and youthful.
Drunk Elephant’s C-Firma Fresh Day Serum also contains pumpkin ferment and pomegranate extract, which gently exfoliate dead skin cells and help the antioxidants penetrate even deeper into the skin. This serum is nourishing and soothing and it noticeably reduces the appearance of aging signs and photodamage.
There’s a good reason why I love these products so much. Each of them is gentle and efficient, can enhance your complexion and would be the perfect addition to your fall skincare routine.
