A tell-tale sign of the end of summer is the emergence of pumpkin…everywhere. From spiced coffees, breakfast cereals, and even chewing gum (#eww), pumpkin shows up in the unlikeliest of places. So why should we be surprised to see in it our skincare?
Turns out this fruit (don’t worry- we didn’t know that either) is more than a trendy autumn accessory for the ‘gram. It boasts skin-positive benefits, too. Thanks to its small molecular structure, pumpkin delivers skin-softening fatty acids, anti-aging antioxidants like vitamins A and C, and skin-brightening alpha hydroxy acids deep into the skin. It also contains line-smoothing vitamin E and oil-regulating zinc.
Can’t make it to the pumpkin patch? The Kocostar Pumpkin Mask made our skin look ultra-glowy and its little pumpkins slices gave us major #fallvibes. In addition to the skin-luminating pumpkin, it contains de-puffing caffeine and hydrating sodium hyaluronate. The result? Instantly beautiful, glass-like skin to get you glowing into the new season!
