As you nibble on that last bite of pumpkin pie (and simultaneously count the number of calories you've consumed since Thanksgiving), we hope you'd take a few minutes to focus on the beauty benefits of indulging in the bright orange squash. That is, when it comes to caring for your hair, skin and nails.
Pumpkin is packed with cell-renewing and disease-fighting nutrients, including vitamins A, C, K and E, magnesium, potassium, iron, alpha and beta carotenes. When infused in products we rely on to maintain our good looks, the fall favorite works to brighten a dull complexion, reduce inflammation, unclog pores, keep wrinkles at bay and nourish dry hair. Whew! What a superfood.
Here, 13 pumpkin-rich beauty products that are almost good enough to eat. But be smart and use as suggested on the label.
