The other day I was looking for canned pumpkin in the grocery store, and the clerk told me that it's not quite pumpkin season. *sigh* But it will be soon! With fall underway and Halloween in just a few weeks, it is soon to be pumpkin pumpkin everywhere.
And this seasonal favorite is for more than just pies and your favorite latte--it's a fantastic beauty agent too!
Pumpkin has skin rejuvenating qualities via high levels of essential fatty acids that can be easily absorbed by the skin, it's got vitamin E which helps to protect the skin, and it contains antioxidant Vitamin A and Vitamin C to help soften and soothe the skin, while boosting collagen production to prevent the signs of aging. It is literally a super food, built to save your skin!
I am working on a fun pumpkin-inspired project that I can't wait to share with you guys this month! In the meantime, share your favorite pumpkin pleasures with me?
How do you like yours? In a beverage, a favorite recipe, or do you prefer your pumpkin hanging in your closet?
