Pumpkin Party: Celebrate Soft & Luminous Skin

Let's get this party started. Fall celebrates pumpkins like no other time of the year with jack-o-lanterns, pies, muffins, cheesecakes, bread and lattes. However, you don't need to go to a Halloween or Thanksgiving party to appreciate this festive fruit. As a topical application, the enzymes and antioxidants contained in pumpkins perk up dull complexions--which is music to our ears and faces. 

Pumpkin contains natural enzymes that act as a velvet rope to help keep dead skin cells off the guest list. This makes it a popular ingredient in masks, peels and exfoliants. When the skin stays free of excessive cellular buildup, it allows other products--such as moisturizers, serums and sunscreens--to penetrate more easily.

You can't talk about the effectiveness of pumpkin as a topical tool without popping a few corks for its rich antioxidant benefits. Vitamin A possesses the ability to soothe and soften skin as it reverses environmental damage, while vitamin C stimulates collagen growth. For those who suffer from acne, these healing vitamins also help reduce pore size and excess oil.

No need to be a party pooper when it comes to your skin. Check out our list of VIPs (very important pumpkin products). We guarantee you'll be doing a happy dance in the spirit of the season.
