Six pumpkin beauty picks that celebrate the season.
The darling of holiday desserts and seasonal dishes, pumpkins are also a celebrated beauty elixir. The good gourd has a high content of vitamin A and beta carotene, two potent antioxidants. The fleshy pulp of the pumpkin contains an enzyme that lifts dead skin skin cells while the oil from their seeds contain a burst of nourishing vitamins. Plus, the spicy, sweet aroma is anatural mood booster.
