Although pumpkin may only seem like a fall decoration or holiday dessert this versatile fruit is a skincare treasure trove. Packed with beneficial vitamins, minerals, and enzymes pumpkin has lately been used in moisturizers, cleansers, and most especially enzyme peels. From exfoliating to anti aging to helping heal acne pumpkin enzymes pull triple duty to keep the skin healthy and vibrant.
How do the enzymes in pumpkin work? Similar to an alpha hydroxy acid, they dissolved the dead skin cells that line the epidermis, or top layer of skin, which can cause a dull or lack luster appearance if not exfoliated away. In addition the enzymes in pumpkin encourage new cell turnover and growth, making this treatment especially effective for acne or aging skin. Pumpkin also features a high percentage of vitamin A and beta-carotene, giving the fruit its distinctive orange color, and also providing anti aging and antioxidant benefits to the skin when applied topically. Even more exciting pumpkin products are safe for use by all skin types
