As more and more researchers are examining the benefits of pumpkin ingredient in skin care formulations, it may be useful to learn about these. We at Herbally Radiant use pumpkin as key ingredient in a unique regenerative face mask, packed with Vitamin C & E with many beneficial properties.
Its amazing properties are :
-It is packed with fruit enzymes and alpha hydroxy acids (AHAs), which increase cell turnover, to brighten and smooth the skin.
-It contains antioxidant Vitamin A and Vitamin C to help soften and soothe the skin and boost collagen production to prevent the signs of aging.
-Zinc in pumpkin seeds is brilliant for acne sufferers. Zinc will help control the hormone level and oil production, as well as assist with healing of the skin.
-Pumpkin seeds are high in essential fatty acids and Vitamin E, which are necessary to maintain good barrier function of the skin. They also regulate sebum, great for an oily skin.
-The molecular structure of pumpkin is small and therefore can penetrate deeper into the skin when used topically. This is amazing for treating a dull complexion, aging skin and pigmentation.
-Known as PSO, pumpkin seed oil is rich in vitamin E, zinc, omega 3- and 6- fatty acids as well as antioxidants. It has, therefore, proved to be the superfood for everybody’s skin. Its use makes skin feel hydrated, supple and smooth, thus helping maintain a youthful appearance. Pumpkin is also fabulous for hair, hydrating the follicles, locking in moisture and leaving shiny, lustrous strands, braids, coils and curls.
The Pumpkin Face Mask formulation especially developed by the Herbally Radiant R&D team has a fine blend of other oils, with a touch of Vitamin E. It applies light, and cleanly, absorbing quickly without leaving any heavy, oily feel.
One will find the Pumpkin Mask a delicious, exfoliating treatment targeting dull, maturing, and chaotic skin. In addition to being a delicious source of antioxidants and enzymes, Pumpkin contains more than 100 beneficial nutrients that help skin transition through the changing seasons.
The glycolic acid that the Pumpkin Face Mask contains helps rejuvenate face, hands and body, creating a more youthful appearance of skin.
