Even though Pumpkin Spice Lattes have been going strong since August, we all know that October is really the time for pumpkin to shine. Besides putting pumpkin into much needed caffeinated beverages and delicious desserts, this ingredient has always been an absolute favorite of mine in skin care. It’s high antioxidant activity helps it protect the skin from UV damage while also having anti-bacterial, hyperpigmentation and soothing benefits. Safe to say, while it is an October favorite, pumpkin is a win for the skin all year round. Here are some pumpkin product favorites for your treatment room and retail area.
