Pretty much everyone knows that pumpkin packs a delicious, nutritious punch in some of the most famous recipes, but did you know it’s also a beauty-boosting superstar? Yes, the vitamin-rich treat is a huge hit in the skincare space, too.

Pumpkins are rich in AHAs which is key to a radiant and glowing complexion. In addition to that, the fleshy fruit contains skin-saving vitamins such as A, E, and C that help fade dark spots and fight signs of aging. A luscious layer of pumpkin face mask not only smells amazing but also works wonders in leaving your skin baby soft and smooth. So if you wish to give a hefty dose of nutrients to your skin, keep scrolling for pumpkin-infused beauty DIYs that’ll plump up your pores and give your skin a luminous glow.
