The Many Skin Benefits of Pumpkin

Hello lovelies! I hope you're all enjoying this beautifully crisp autumn air. As I'm sure most of you are aware, it's pumpkin season. I've been waiting for the perfect opportunity to incorporate pumpkin into one of my formulas. There's no better time than now. This week end I will be debuting my newest product at First Friday Las Vegas... a pumpkin enzyme cleansing clay!

According to The International Dermal Institute, pumpkin has numerous skin enriching benefits. These benefits include:

• Contains fruit enzymes and alpha hydroxy acids (AHAs), which increase cell turnover, to brighten and smooth the skin.

• Contains antioxidant Vitamin A and Vitamin C to help soften and soothe the skin and boost collagen production to prevent the signs of aging.

• Zinc in pumpkin seeds is beneficial for acne sufferers. Zinc helps control hormone levels and oil production, as well as assists with healing of the skin.

• Pumpkin seeds are high in essential fatty acids and Vitamin E, which are necessary to maintain protection of the skin. They also regulate sebum (oil produced by the skin).

• The molecular structure of pumpkin is small and therefore can penetrate deeper into the skin when used topically. This is amazing for treating a dull complexion, aging skin and pigmentation.

Stop by the Apotheca Borealis pop up this week at First Friday LV (https://www.ffflv.org/ ) to try a sample and say hi to my friend Ash from Ash's Apothecary, who I will cotabling with at this event.

Have a fabulous week!
