Pumpkins are fall’s favorite fruit. Yes, it is a fruit! Pumpkins are part of the berry family. Pumpkin recipes may be found for everything from appetizers to side dishes to dessert. Coffee drinkers wait all year for fall and the famous Pumpkin Spice Latte.
Pumpkin is a great treat for the skin. It is loaded with vitamins and minerals to promote glowing skin. It contains natural fruit enzymes and alpha hydroxy acids (AHAs) to brighten and smooth the skin and it is very high in Vitamins A and C, known for their skin protecting antioxidants.
