For many years pumpkins have been associated with Halloween and with October 31st fast approaching, we're seeing them everywhere. But did you know that pumpkins are good for a lot more than just carving? We're sharing some of the best skincare products that use this secret ingredient.

What does Pumpkin do in Skincare?

Whilst maybe not one of the most common ingredients to hear about in the beauty world, Pumpkin is actually packed with skin-friendly ingredients.

Pumpkin is a great source of Vitamin C, which is well known to prevent and treat UV induced damage. Vitamin C is also required for the production of Collagen and Elastin; proteins that help to maintain your skin's firmness and elasticity.

Pumpkin Seed Oil is also an incredible oil for your skin and hair; it is rich in fatty acids and antioxidants, helping to keep your skin looking plump, hydrated and toned.

So, now you've heard that, why not take a look as some of our favourite Pumpkin-enriched products.
