Let’s Appreciate the Pumpkin
It’s that time of the year again. Rich colours, crisp air and hearty, healthy food … and pumpkins everywhere. After all the carving, the leftover scooped out flesh nourishes our bodies (if we cook with it) a feeds us a healthy dose of skin-loving nutrients – that in return gives us healthy, glowing skin. We can also receive the benefits and nutrients via a pumpkin peel. So, let’s look at the nutrients that are in pumpkin.
Beneficial Nutrients in Pumpkin
Vitamin C is abundant in the pumpkin and is essential for the formation of collagen. It’s also a powerful antioxidant, which helps to protect skin from free radical damage that prematurely ages the skin. The pumpkin is also rich in beta-carotene, which converts into a form of vitamin A – essential for skin cell renewal and repair.
Vitamin E can also be found in the pumpkin – a vitamin that is essential to skin health and is also a powerful antioxidant that protects the skin from free radicals that cause damage to the skin and premature skin ageing.
In the seeds of the pumpkin are minerals and fatty acids that aid skin health. These are magnesium, iron, zinc and the essential fatty acids – particularly omega 3. Essential fatty acids are exactly that – essential to the health of skin. They make the skin cell membranes stronger and firmer, helping water to be more easily retained in the skin. They also plump up the skin and help it to be moisturised and supple from within, therefore improving the skin’s elasticity.

What Benefits will I Notice From Using the 30% Pro Pumpkin Peel?
The peel dissolves dead surface skin cells that can dull our complexion and hinder the absorption of other skincare products. Exfoliation is vital for healthy skin. It increases cell turnover in the skin (which slows with age) and reveals softer and smoother skin. When our skin is exfoliated regularly (not over-exfoliated), it is more easily able to absorb the other ingredients from skincare products you use – increasing their efficacy. Dry skin that has a build-up of dead surface skin cells – is dull skin.
