pumpkin provides many health benefits to your body and skin

Pumpkin is much more than a filling for a pie or an ingredient in a latte. It's a nutrient-dense, low-calorie fruit with a wide range of uses. It's a must-have component in any pumpkin-based recipe; including those for facials. Before you think you have to go through the trouble of chopping and scooping a fresh pumpkin, remember that canned pumpkin offers just as much, if not more, nutrition. Here are a few of pumpkin's advantages:

Pumpkin gives you energy
Pumpkin has an abundant amount of magnesium and even more potassium than bananas. Both of these things aid in the conversion of blood sugar into useful energy. A daily intake of pumpkin, according to Swedish experts, can quadruple your energy levels in as little as 7 days.

Canned pumpkin is just as good
If you think canned pumpkin isn’t as good as fresh, think again. One cup of canned pumpkin contains 17-milligrams of beta-carotene, compared to just 0.5 milligram in a cup of mashed, cooked pumpkin flesh. What’s even better is beta-carotene helps relieve the inflammation of arthritis and promotes healing of damaged tissues.

Beta-carotene doesn’t just help on the inside, it also helps repair reduce and repair skin inflammation and skin tissue.

Pumpkin has lots of vitamin A
A half cup of canned pumpkin gives you 380% of your daily value of vitamin A, a nutrient that helps the production of T-cells which fights infection, lessening your chances of getting sick.

Pumpkin has lots of vitamin C
A cup of cooked pumpkin contains 11.5mg of vitamin C which is a powerful vitamin that supports a healthy immune system and also aids in the growth and repair of tissue which also benefits your skin.

Pumpkin contains alpha hydroxy
Pumpkin has natural enzymes and alpha hydroxy acids that brighten skin and boost skin repair when used topically. These elements also help slough off dead skin cells and increase cell turnover.
