The Health Benefits of Pumpkin

Wait, don’t throw away that leftover pumpkin just yet. Pumpkin is packed with nutrients that are not only healthy to consume but may also be applied topically. Pumpkins contain vitamin A, C, E, and antioxidants. Besides, pumpkin contains fruit enzymes and can naturally exfoliate dead skin cells. This explains that post-pumpkin face mask glow that you’ll get after each use!

Urbanskinrx.com has a Purifying 2-in-1 Pumpkin Pore Detox Mask & Scrub. It’s a self-warming, dual-action mask and scrub that combines detoxifying clay and exfoliating jojoba beads with enzymes and vitamins to deep clean and rejuvenate the skin.
