It’s that time of the year again, FINALLY. It is socially acceptable to hoard all the fall-themed and fall-scented items once again. This time around, my fall festivities have manifested in my skincare collection. When pulling out some of my favorite fall skincare products, I began to notice a theme…PUMPKIN! Here’s my round-up of my favorite pumpkin skincare products and why I think you should be including pumpkin in your skincare routine.
What’s so great about pumpkins in skincare?
- Pumpkins contain fruit enzymes and AHAs
Fruit enzymes and AHAs help to remove the dead skin cells from the surface of your skin. Once these dead skin cells are removed, healthy and new cells are able to seen on the surface. If you notice that you skin is looking dull lately, you might want to try incorporating an AHA into your routine.
- Pumpkins contain Vitamin A
Vitamin A is known to help boost and encourage collagen production in the skin. Vitamin A and collagen are necessary for achieving youthful-looking skin. If you think your skin could benefit from firmness or added elasticity, you might want to try adding vitamin a to your routine.
- Pumpkins contain Vitamin C
Vitamin C is one of my favorite products for brightening and evening skin tone. Pumpkin contains vitamin C which can be very useful to help maintain your skin’s glow during the fall and winter when skin tends to get duller.
Now, let’s get into the pumpkin skincare product recommendations!
Pumpkin Enzyme Mask by Peter Thomas Roth
This Pumpkin Enzyme Mask has been in my collection for years. It combines physical exfoliation with chemical exfoliation to revive the appearance of your skin while smelling like delicious pumpkin pie! This is a quick exfoliating mask can be used once a week to boost the appearance of skin and remove dead skin cells.
Pumpkin 24K Gold Mask by Too Cool for School
I can’t stay away from this mask! The Pumpkin 24K Gold Mask has been one of my favorites for a while. I even featured it in my Sheet Mask 101 video! It is made from a thin bio-cellular material that adheres closely to the skin to lock in the serum’s benefits. The serum combines the exfoliating properties of pumpkin with the illuminating effects of 24k gold serum.
Pumpkin Sleeping Pack by Too Cool for School
This is a new product to me but it has already exceeded my expectations. I purchased this after falling in love with the pumpkin mask by the same brand and I’m so glad I did. This Pumpkin Sleeping Pack deeply hydrates your skin overnight to reveal plump and smooth skin when you wake up. It doesn’t smell like pumpkin but you still get all the skincare benefits of pumpkin in the mask. This is perfect for those who are over the PSL hype but still want the benefits of pumpkin in their routine.
That’s all for my pumpkin skincare round-up! What is your favorite pumpkin product?
