So we've finally brought out our new fall facial package featuring super-food pumpkin! A lot of you may be wondering what exactly pumpkin does for your skin or why you should even bother considering it when the truth is that it has so many benefits for your entire body that you may not even know about.
First off, a little bit about the pumpkin's affect on your body. Pumpkins are used for much more than jack-o-lanterns on Halloween! Eating pumpkin floods your body with vitamin A which keeps your eyesight in the best shape. It's particularly good for low-light vision. Pumpkin also aids in weight loss as it is an often overlooked source of Fiber, with only 39 calories per serving. Pumpkin is also believed to aid in the prevention of cancer and the large amount of vitamin C found in pumpkins will boost your immune system.
Pumpkin seeds are good for your heart as they are naturally rich in certain plant-based chemicals called phytosterols that have been shown in studies to reduce LDL or "bad" cholesterol. They also carry many natural antioxidants that aid blood flow. These seeds also carry the amino acids that produce Sarotonin, which is a natural mood booster!
Now aside from all of that, you may be asking, "How does this even relate to my skin?" Well, Pumpkin is an excellent treatment for ALL skin types. Especially during the fall after the summer when the sun damaged your sensitive skin. Being rich in Vitamin A (skin healing), C (anti-oxidant) and Zinc, the pumpkin soothes, moisturizes and acts as a carrier, assisting the other mask ingredients to absorb deeper into the skin and intensifying the results.
