Pumpkin spice and everything nice – that’s what fall is made of. From your front porch décor to your latte, pumpkin is everywhere this time of year. Where do we love pumpkin best? On our skin!
Pumpkin is packed with beauty benefits. This includes vitamins and minerals, which help neutralize the free radicals that cause visible signs of aging. Pumpkin is also rich in enzymes that refine skin tone and texture. Here are some of our favorite pumpkin skincare products to try out this fall.
Brighten, Smooth and Hydrate Skin
A hydrating overnight mask like Luzern Nuit Hydra Enzyme Masque exfoliates and nourishes skin while you sleep, so you wake up to a brighter, firmer, more youthful looking complexion. Formulated with pumpkin enzyme ferment, Vitamin C, hyaluronic acid, organic sweet almond oil and squalane, this luxurious mask gently dissolves the dead outer layer of skin to reduce the appearance of lines, wrinkles and surface discoloration.
How it works: Natural enzymes break down the bonds that hold dead skin cells to surface skin. Speeding this process helps reveal a brighter, healthier looking complexion. Removing dead skin cells enables skin to better absorb the active ingredients in your skincare products.
Clean and Protect
Like a magnet, L’Essentials Micellar Cleansing Water lifts away surface impurities such as makeup and bacteria, without over-drying skin. Pumpkin enzyme ferment speeds the removal of dead skin cells to reveal brighter, healthy-looking skin and enable other active ingredients to be better absorbed.
How it works: Created as an essential step in daily skincare routines, micellar water deeply cleanses, tones, refines and conditions. Micro-nutrients zinc, copper and magnesium are transformed through fermentation to enhance their conditioning benefits, while organically grown Sambucus Nigra flower extract gently tones and soothes skin. All it takes is a few simple swipes with a cotton pad – no rinsing necessary – to reap the benefits of a radiantly refreshed complexion.
Put the Brakes on Breakouts
By breaking down surface debris, pumpkin enzyme in your skincare products can help minimize breakouts and even prevent them from forming. Balance oiliness, refine the look of pores and create clearer skin by incorporating detoxifying products like Luzern Nuit Hydra Enzyme Masque and L’Essentials Micellar Cleansing Water into your daily skincare routine this fall – and all year long.
