Pumpkin Power!

Before you toss out your old jack o' lanterns this weekend, be aware that pumpkins pack a powerful punch of beauty benefits. Chock full of Vitamins A & C, pumpkins are ideal for making moisturizing masks. Plus, their flesh contain enzymes and antioxidants that can help dissolve dead skin cells and leave your face feeling refreshed while creating a healthy glow.

Not only are pumpkins good for pies and decorating, they're great for you too!

Have you ever used a pumpkin-based beauty product? As my treat for you, I'm giving away one bottle of Rapid Lash (a $49 value) (it's made with pumpkin seed extracts) to one lucky reader. My friend SWEARS by this product. The reader will be selected randomly and announced tomorrow.

I didn't know the beauty benefits of pumpkin. Thanks for the info! Does eating pumpkin in recipes count too? I don't eat pumpkin pie but maybe I should start having a bite or two. I've never used a pumpkin mask but I have used the Pumpkin Spice lotions & lip glosses.

Hey BGG
I have used pumpkin based masks before and some can be really powerful. If you find one that is just right for your skin, then you can be left with a LOVELY glow.
Thanks for the contest.
