When the leaves begin to change colors, sweaters come out of storage, and you suddenly have an insatiable urge to pumpkin spice everything, you know it's time to say goodbye to Summer and welcome in Fall! Although it's one of my favorite seasons, Autumn can play some nasty tricks on your skin with its harsh winds and chilly weather. But just like that pumpkin spice latte you're probably drinking right now, you can treat your skin this Autumn by using the perfect ingredient of the season: pumpkin!
Pumpkin actually has a lot of amazing properties that benefit the skin.
-Pumpkin is rich with enzymes and alpha hydroxy acids (AHAs), which increase cell turnover allowing the skin to have a brighter and smoother complexion.
-Pumpkin contains antioxidant Vitamin A and Vitamin C to help soften and soothe the skin. This also boost collagen production to prevent the signs of aging.
-Pumpkin also has a smaller molecular structure which is ideal for skincare as it can penetrate deeper into the skin from topical application.
Sleeping packs are one of my favorite types of product and they are great year round. But, they are an absolute essential step in my skincare routine during the colder seasons. Going from cold temperatures and harsh, chilly winds in the outdoors, to dry, hot air from heaters indoors, skin typically becomes tight, dry and irritated from such drastically different conditions. Luckily, sleeping packs will definitely help in alleviating this. The Too Cool For School Pumpkin Sleeping Pack is the perfect pick up for Fall and Winter seasons as it will help moisturize, repair, and protect your skin while you're asleep to make sure that your skin is in perfect condition for whatever the climate has to throw at you!
The Too Cool For School Pumpkin Sleeping Pack has an amazing scent and even better consistency. Once applied, you'll realize that the consistency will go from a very thick and heavy cream to a slippery and almost gel-like texture. Let it sit for about 5 minutes and you'll notice that your skin will drink it right up.
Other than all the amazing benefits pumpkin has to offer your skin, this sleeping pack also includes:
licorice root oil, which is an anti-inflammatory that soothes the skin which will work wonders during the colder months.
Hyaluronic Acid, which is one of the best ingredients to have when needing some serious hydration and moisturizing properties. Hyaluronic acid can actually hold up to 1,000 times its weight in water.
So why is this sleeping pack the perfect pickup for Autumn? Well, not only is it made with pumpkin extract, it helps moisturizes skin to combat dryness, it exfoliates to smooth out skin, and it helps to create a shield and barrier against the harsh elements. Wash it off in the morning, and you'll realize how soft, hydrated and smooth your skin is-- repairing all the damage the weather may have done overnight while also prepping and protecting it from what the climate may throw at you the very next day. A MUST pick up for the cold season. Trust me! Your skin will thank you for it!
