Following on from our Autumnal theme this October, we thought there'd be no better time to include pumpkin in our diets to reap the benefits for our skin.
Foods For Healthy Skin
Pumpkin is known to be a rich source of nutrients including Vitamin C which helps to promote the production of collagen, making it one of the best foods for skin repair. This improves elasticity of skin and helps to even out its tone. Also containing Potassium and Zinc, pumpkin tackles redness and reduces skin inflammation. It is also rich in wrinkle fighting and sun protecting beta-carotene which helps improve skin texture.
