It’s that time of year and pumpkins everywhere! They are cheap, easy to find and easy to prepare.
Pumpkin is packed with Vitamin A - one serving contains 170% of your daily requirement! Vitamin A is an anti oxidant and is important for vision, the immune system, heart, lungs, and kidneys. It is also amazing for the skin. Retinol, found in many skin care products, is a form of Vitamin A.
The wonderful pumpkin also contains a healthy dose of Vitamin C and alpha hydroxy acids (AHA) which help stimulate new cell growth, reduces wrinkle, smooths and brightens dry, dull skin. So when you are out buying a pumpkin for fall decoration, buy one for yourself as well!
