Pumpkin - Pumpkin is absolutely packed with fruit enzymes and alpha hydroxy acids which increase cell turnover, to brighten and smooth the skin. This delicious extract also includes vitamin A and C to help soften and soothe your skin, whilst boosting collagen production, to prevent signs of ageing.

Because of this, pumpkin is amazing for treating a dull complexion, ageing skin and pigmentation.

It simply loosens the glue between skin cells so that they fall off and exfoliate away.
