Pumpkin, The Hot New Beauty Ingredient

Autumn has a way of leaving us all in the mood for pumpkin spice lattes, shopping for new boots and for embracing the scents of the season. Pumpkin is being used in more than just pies this season, with a wide range of seasonal beauty products making use of the bright orange squash. Unknown to most who embrace its popularity at Thanksgiving and Halloween, pumpkin contains exfoliating properties and natural UV protection.

Here’s a list of great pumpkin-infused beauty products and where to find them:

1) PureCeuticals Pumpkin Enzyme Cleanser: Enriched with sharp ginger and at $30 for a fairly large bottle, this cleanser is an effective face wash containing lactic acid, nutmeg, and pumpkin seed oil.

2) Ole Henriksen Sugar Glow Face Scrub: With an exciting and varied ingredient list consisting of sugar, African red tea, and pumpkin, Sugar Glow contains beneficial properties such as having Vitamin C added.

3) Burt’s Bees Miracle Salve: This is the rescue you have been hoping for, and as allows, the Burt’s Bees line has your best interests at heart. While not being a strictly pumpkin-based salve, it does contain pumpkin seed oil in its array of nourishing ingredients (along with olive oil and bee’s pollen).
