The Halloween season brings along pumpkin carving and spice lattes, but did you know the orange fruit has some amazing benefits for your skin.

The traditional Halloween decoration has started becoming more and more popular as an ingredient in skin care products.

This is due to the fact that pumpkin is very rich in vitamins A, B2 and C and it is full of omegas 3 and 6. 

Vitamin A can help improve your vision while vitamin C is brilliant for rejuvenating tired and mature skin.

As well as this pumpkins have been found to help prevent fine lines, wrinkles, inflammation and acne.

Even more amazing the enzymes found in pumpkins can be used as a way to gently exfoliate the skin. 

This will help to brighten and smooth your skin if incorporated two to three times a week in a gentle manner, with little or no effort on your part.

Speaking to Stylist Nurse Manager Kate Bancroft explained ‘you may notice a mild tingling with pumpkin enzymes, and if your skin is especially reactive, be cautious of incorporating them and always do a patch test as a precaution’.
