Try these pumpkin-based skincare products for brighter, healthier looking skin.

Updated: Sep 25, 2023


Pumpkin is not only the perfect element for fall baking and decorating, it’s also beneficial for your skin.

Pumpkins contain several different enzymes and are high in vitamin C.

Check out this in-depth post we did on all the chemistry and benefits of pumpkin.

Pumpkin in your skincare brightens dull skin, shrinks pores, helps with acne, and dry skin too.

Last year, I tested out dozens of pumpkin-based skincare products, and here are some of the best performing ones.

Also, be sure to join my private skincare group on Facebook where I

share all my chemist tips for skin including articles and products I love.

DRMTLGY Pumpkin Enzyme Mask

The DRMTLGY Pumpkin Enzyme Mask is awesome! It is very creamy too.

When you first put this on, it heats up as the enzymes start to work, but goes away after a few minutes.

This one is great for brightening, tightening and helping with dark spots. It also

contains vitamin E and jojoba beads, so it will leave your skin soft and moisturized.

It smells great too!

Peter Thomas Roth Pumpkin Mask

Peter Thomas Roth masks are my favorite, and are the most potent one of the pumpkin masks I’ve found.

It brightens and tightens skin really well after each use.

Bliss Pumpkin Powerhouse

Bliss Pumpkin Powerhouse is a creamy, more gentle solution.

I love the smell of this one, but it also has a great texture and is very affordable.

This isn’t as strong as the others, but it is still a great pumpkin addition to your skincare routine.

Purlisse Pumpkin; Ginger Charcoal Mask

This one deep cleans pores really well and exfoliates.

It is more of a scrub and works like a charcoal mask with the added benefits of pumpkin.

Embrace the upcoming fall season with one of these amazing pumpkin additions!
