Halloween is right around the corner. But candy isn’t the only treat you should indulge in. Pumpkins, a seasonal favorite, offer benefits that extend far beyond satisfying a sweet tooth.
Pumpkins, and their seeds, offer a long list of vitamins and minerals that nourish and protect your skin from the signs of premature aging. And unlike candy, whose sugar content can trigger inflammation and the formation of wrinkles, the ingredients in pumpkin may also help slowly reverse skin damage over time.
Learn more about how this Halloween staple can help you turn back the clock.
- Pumpkin is an excellent source of vitamin C. Vitamin C helps prevent skin aging by protecting collagen from damage from free radicals — including the harmful effects of the sun’s UVA and UVB rays.
- Pumpkin also contains anti-aging vitamin A. Vitamin A is a common ingredient in many skin care products because it works to soothe and smooth aging skin. It also helps to boost collagen production, helping to fend off wrinkles.
- Pumpkin is full of skin-loving enzymes. These enzymes up cell turnover, helping to slough off dead, dull skin cells and replace them with bright new ones — giving you a complexion that glows.
- Pumpkin seeds come packed with vitamin E and zinc. These help regulate oil production, fend off acne breakouts, and protect skin against environmental damage.
