Not only does pumpkin pack a delicious and nutritious punch in your favorite recipes, it’s also a beauty-boosting superstar. Once you find out more about pumpkin skin care products, they may become your next favorite treatment, whether you’re applying them for yourself or your clients. Read on to learn why a pumpkin face mask or peel is exactly what your skin needs, as well as which Eminence Organic Skin Care pumpkin products complement your clients’ skin care routines.
Benefits Of Pumpkin In Skin Care
Often evoking memories of a tasty coffee cake or pie, a luscious layer of a pumpkin face mask not only smells heavenly, it also leaves your skin baby soft and silky smooth. Benefits range from adding nutrition to the skin, increasing moisture levels to brightening skin tone. Pumpkin pulp and pumpkin seed oil contain a wide array of beneficial nutrients including vitamins, minerals, fatty acids and alpha hydroxy acids (AHAs).
We’ve identified before that AHAs are key to a glowing and radiant complexion, helping with exfoliation, moisture retention and reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Adding to this glow-y goodness, pumpkin is also rich in antioxidants, and Vitamins A and C. As Eminence Organics Product Support Team Lead Alicia Hawthorne explains, “Vitamins A and C help to defend against oxidative damage. Vitamin C is especially fabulous for treating and reducing the look of dark spots.”
5 Benefits Of Pumpkin Face Masks According To An Expert
As a licensed esthetician, Alicia offers expert insight on why pumpkin is such a sought-after ingredient and why estheticians might choose a pumpkin face mask in the treatment room. Alicia shares that this humble orange squash has five benefits:
- Infuses the skin with bioflavonoids
- Deeply hydrates and plumps the skin
- Stimulates collagen production
- Provides antioxidant benefits
- Delivers beta carotene, amino acids and fruit enzymes to the skin
The benefits of pumpkin leave you with the complexion of your dreams year round, but this fall-favorite ingredient is especially helpful as the seasons change. Using pumpkin skin care products allows estheticians to help alleviate skin care woes such as dehydration and redness caused by dryness.
Alicia sums this up perfectly, saying: “As the seasons change, our skin tends to suffer moisture loss and can use a boost in exfoliation. Whether it’s fine lines and wrinkles, post summer UV exposure, or the change in environment from central heating or air, the skin can usually use a little TLC, and pumpkin is here to help.”
With so many benefits, this multitasking ingredient is the perfect choice to incorporate into your clients’ daily routines as well as into delicious facial protocols for the holidays, or any season.
