Summer is over and suddenly your sun-kissed skin glow is slowly fading away. Luckily, you can include some autumn ingredients in your skincare routine that will help keep a healthy and radiant complexion.
We say autumn, and you say… Pumpkin, of course! It’s that time of the year when you have pumpkin for your breakfast, brunch, lunch, dinner, even for a dessert (especially for a dessert). But did you know that pumpkin is a great ingredient for your homemade skin care products?
With antioxidants and nutrients like vitamins A, C, and E, zinc, potassium, and enzymes, pumpkin is a natural skin superhero! You can use it for your face masks or even body scrubs. Thanks to its composition, the pumpkin is a great skin exfoliator.
Also, you probably know that autumn is a season when your skin suffers from moisture loss and that’s where pumpkin is coming to the game. It stimulates collagen production, delivers beta carotene to the skin, and also deeply hydrates it.
There is no coziness in sweater weather without those little red berries that bring color and joy to every home. We are talking about one of the most important autumn ingredients – cranberries, a superfood that is full of vitamins C, E, and K, as well as manganese, fiber, fatty acids, etc. All of that is making them a great ingredient that treats dryness but also improves the elasticity of the skin and boosts radiance.
Cranberries effectively fight free radicals and reduce signs of aging including fine lines and hyperpigmentation. But, not only that. Being a great source of flavonoids and salicylic acid, cranberries are a strong weapon against acne. Namely, both of those ingredients have antiseptic properties that minimize the look of pimples and blemishes.
Try them in your DIY face mask and enjoy the feeling of deep hydration.
Cinnamon! Nothing warms you so gently on cold, rainy days as the scent of this spice. It is a wonder spice with a lot of benefits, including those for the skin. Face masks with cinnamon should become your No1 remedy if you are fighting acne. It is known as an ingredient that may even unclog the pores and, not only reduce but prevent acne.
Cinnamon also helps remove dead skin cells providing you smooth, soft skin and flawless complexion. With homemade cinnamon face masks, a soothing facial experience is guaranteed.
