It’s that time of year again where you see pumpkins EVERYWHERE.. as decoration, in lattes, cookies, cakes, even kale chips. Yes.. I said kale chips! Odd I know..

But did you know this food isn’t just pretty fall decor; it’s also super beneficial for your skin (and overall health)?? Well it is! Both the fleshy part of the pumpkin as well as the seeds contain a variety of nutrients such as carotenoids, fatty acids and vitamins that all help promote healthy glowing skin.

It’s also great topically —if you see any skincare products with pumpkin listed in them, they’re usually worth a try because pumpkin has tons of fruit enzymes and acids that help with brightening. There’s also different antioxidants and nutrients that are great for boosting collagen and fighting acne.

So when you come across pumpkins during this holiday season, don’t hesitate to explore their many benefits!
