From pie and candles to pasta and lattes, everything good and wonderful in the world is about to be taken over by a certain orange fruit. Pumpkin beauty products for fall 2019 are exceptionally exciting, and not just because their smell or color will help you get into a cheery autumnal mood, either. Pumpkin boasts a ton of minerals and vitamins that are super beneficial to skin, making them both festive and effective — there's no better combination than that!
As explained to Dermstore by Lily Talakoub, M.D., dermatologist at McLean Dermatology and Skincare Center, “Pumpkin is made up of alpha hydroxy acids (similar to glycolic acid and lactic acid), which are fruit acids that slough dead skin cells, increase cell turnover and keep the skin glowing." She continued, "Pumpkin also has the added benefit of containing beta-carotene, a vitamin A-derivative that decreases wrinkles, helps slough brown spots and can help reverse UV damage.” And that's not even the half of it. The fruit is also loaded with zinc, which helps prevent acne; vitamin C, which fights sun damage and free radicals; and vitamin A, which minimizes acne scars. In other words, it's definitely something you want in your skincare routine.
