Pumpkin-Packed Beauty Products to Pick Up Now

By  October 24, 2012

Fall brings us many things: layered looks for cooler weather, goblins and ghouls for Halloween, and hearty home-cooked meals. It also brings dry, cracked skin, flat complexions, and a prelude to winter-weather beauty blues. With that, we took one of autumn’s most popular attributes, the pumpkin, and found that the decorative fruit can double as an amino acid, vitamin, and enzyme-packed ingredient to guard your skin against the elements. Pumpkins contain anti-inflammatory zinc that can soothe irritated skin; fatty acids to make you supple and soft; and exfoliating properties to make sure your complexion stays crystal clear. We’ve rounded up our picks that’ll get you and your skin pumpkin-pretty for the season.
