Look, I get it—pumpkins are legit the universal symbol for fall. And when most people think of pumpkin, the first thing that comes to mind is pumpkin spice…everything. And call me basic if you want, but I love it all. From pies, to lattes, roasted seeds, and even pumpkin spice makeup. But, one place that pumpkin belongs that isn’t your food, is on your skin. And no, I don’t mean pulling a Dwight Scrute by getting your head stuck in the body of a pumpkin—I’m talking about it being a spooky-good skin care ingredient.

I was introduced to it a few years ago while getting a facial when I asked my esthetician to help with my dull, lack-luster skin (helloooo corporate burn-out and blasting AC). They used a pumpkin enzyme mask and I swear I walked out of there absolutely glowing. And while it might not be suitable for all skin types, I will say as a large pore/oily T-zone girly, this shit felt like magic. So much so that I went out and immediately bought the Peter Thomas Roth Pumpkin Enyzme Mask and I’ve never looked back.

So, what I’m trying to say is, don’t sleep on pumpkin when it’s not in your latte. It’s known for it’s exfoliating, brightening, and radiance-boosting features when used on your skin and that sounds like a major win to me. Here are a few of my favorite products that I promise you won’t have to wait until October to enjoy.
