It also is an antiseptic so if you have a cut or wound or maybe a bad acne patch, you can put it on your skin or on your latte—either way you will reap the antibacterial properties.
Autumn is here and that means pumpkin is back on the menu everywhere. This is great news for your skin because pumpkin is packed full of beta-carotene, rich in vitamin A.
