Benefits of a Pumpkin Enzyme Mask
Pumpkin enzyme mask is a powerhouse of many nutrients which includes Vitamin B, Vitamin C, Alpha Hydroxy Acids, and more. Here’s how it can benefit your skin:
Slows ageing process
Pumpkin contains Alpha-hydroxy acids that promote skin regeneration. As a result, the elasticity of the skin is improved, resulting in a slower ageing process.
It also promotes collagen production, a protein that is important for our bones and skin. It maintains the stretching property of skin hence, reducing fine lines and wrinkles.
Reduces Sun Damage
Whenever we expose ourselves to the sun, there are free radicals that get absorbed into our skin. As a result, they damage the skin and can stay intact for a very long time.
Vitamin A and Vitamin C present in pumpkin can help kill those free radicals. So, to reverse UV damage, use a pumpkin enzyme mask as a natural yet effective solution.
Regulates Oil Production
If we talk about oily skin, acne also comes to our mind. The oil our skin produces is not harmful itself, but excess use of anything isn’t always in our favor. That's the main problem with people having oily skin.
With pumpkin enzyme masks, you get the power of zinc, which is an active anti-acne nutrient. Additionally, fatty acids and vitamin E help to produce a controlled amount of oil.
Plumps Dry Skin
Dry skin is dull and can be very itchy sometimes. Moreover, it is prone to ageing far more than oily or normal skins. So, it is necessary to keep it hydrated all the time.
Using a pumpkin enzyme mask, you can give your skin a hydra boost that will leave it fresh and supple. It plays a vital role in leaving the skin radiant like never before.
The free radicals rooted deeply in our skin causes excess production of melanin as well. It results in skin discoloration and brown patches, which we know as hyperpigmentation.
Since pumpkin enzyme masks contain vitamin C, they brighten up the dark spots. Also, it increases the cell turnover rate, reducing discoloration and caused by dullness.
