The season of the pumpkin is upon us! But it turns out that pumpkins aren’t just for our favourite lattes and pies. With enzymes and alpha hydroxy acids to brighten and smooth skin, antioxidants to prevent signs of aging, zinc to help fight acne, and a molecular structure that helps lock-in moisture, there’s a reason these vibrant orange orbs are making their way into skincare aisles. If you’re not up for slathering pureed gourd on your face, check out these five luxurious beauty products that are packed with pumpkin power.
Desert Essence Organics Pumpkin Spice Hand Repair Cream
Pumpkin works overtime in this organic hand lotion to lock-in moisture, prevent damage from daily environmental stress, even skin tone, and fade age spots. Pop a tube in your bag and stop winter from taking its toll on your digits.
Arcona Pumpkin Body Lotion
Infused with pumpkin extracts, glycolic acid, and the rich scent of a fresh-from-the-oven dessert, this daily-use moisturizer will improve the tonal quality and elasticity of your skin. Plus, you’ll smell good enough to eat!
Lotus Moon Pumpkin Enzyme Peel
This facial-in-a-jar has the triple pumpkin power of pumpkin puree, pumpkin enzymes, and pumpkin wine – and it smells like a piece of pumpkin pie! The enzymatic process of the peel helps to break down dead skin cells, leaving your skin radiant and glowing.
Splendid Dirt Nutrient Mud Mask
With a soothing blend of Illite and Bentonite clays, pumpkin puree, and active yogurt cultures, this mask cleans deep into your pores, temporarily shrinking their look, smoothing skin, and evening out blotchy skin tones.
MyChelle Dermaceuticals Creamy Pumpkin Cleanser
This pumpkin-powered cleanser gently cleans your face, but that’s not all! The formula’s pumpkin and honey rehydrate the skin, while blue green algae works to fortify skin tissues, relieve redness, and prevent irritation. Plus, it’s vegan, gluten-free and contains no sulphates, so you can feel good about popping a bottle into your shopping cart.
