14 Pumpkin Beauty Products You’ll Love — Even if You Don’t Like Pumpkin
We definitely love our leather jackets, cozy scarves and moody manicures. But pumpkin is what fall is really about. It all started with pumpkin lattes and now everything is getting a pumpkin makeover. (There’s even pumpkin spice hair.) Even if you don’t buy into the pumpkin trend, you can still incorporate pumpkin beauty products into your skin care routine.
Pumpkin beauty products don’t just smell amazing. They are actually very good for your skin. Pumpkin is packed with vitamins and minerals, which help nourish and fight the signs of aging. That’s why brands love using pumpkin enzymes, seed butters and more in their products.
Looking to get into the fall spirit? Work one (or two, or three) of these delicious-smelling pumpkin beauty products into your routine.
