Pumpkins have powerful benefits for creating healthy, glowing skin.  This vegetable is packed with vitamins and minerals including B vitamins, vitamin C, E and beta-carotene—just to name a few. 

Vitamin C:  Pumpkin is a good source of vitamin C, which helps protect skin from free radical damage, such as wrinkles and even skin cancer.

Carotenoids: Alpha-carotene, beta-carotene and other carotenoids are the protective antioxidants that are also responsible for giving pumpkins their bright orange hue.

Minerals: Potassium, copper, magnesium, manganese, and iron are just a few of the minerals found in pumpkin. Potassium helps promote healthy hair and regrowth. Pumpkins are also rich in copper and zinc, which play a big part in healthy skin and hair. Zinc helps protect cell membranes, maintain collagen, fight acne, and promotes skin renewal.

B Vitamins: Pumpkin is a good source of most of the B vitamins, including niacin, riboflavin, B6 and folate.  Niacin helps treat acne and improve circulation.  Folate also helps to improve circulation, which increases cell turn over and renewal.
