Pumpkin is no longer just an ingredient used in soups and roasts!
You may not have realised that pumpkin is rich in important nutrients beneficial for the skin such as enzymes, Aha’s, antioxidants, zinc and essential fatty acids.
In fact it’s hard to overstate the benefits of pumpkin when used in skincare!
Pumpkin is packed with fruit enzymes and alpha hydroxyl acids which exfoliate excess skin cells from the surface of the skin. As a result your skin will feel smoother and look brighter.
Pumpkin seeds contain zinc which has a healing effect on acne. Zinc helps to control the hormone level and oil production as well as assists with skin healing.
Another benefit of pumpkin is that it is loaded with antioxidants – Vitamins A and C and E. These help to protect the normal function of the skin by neutralizing free radicals and boosting the production of collagen which prevents the signs of ageing such as fine lines and wrinkles.
And to top it all off, the molecular structure of pumpkin is small and can therefore penetrate deeper into the skin when used topically, helping to maintain a good barrier function of the skin. This treats a dull complexion, ageing skin and pigmentation, acne and sebum production.
It makes sense that to achieve the best results – use skincare that includes pumpkin such as DermaDNA Enzyme VitA Cleanse and Enzyme Detox Masque
