Step aside pumpkin spice latte, these pumpkin beauty products are equal parts delicious (smelling, don't eat them!) and good for your body! Each of them will help make sure you look and feel your best on Halloween — and every other day of the year. Be the shameless pumpkin fanatic you are at your core and indulge!
For the record, you can love pumpkin without being a basic bitch. Many Bustle writers are proudly obsessed and have even expressed their borderline romance with the seasonal drink through Christina Aguilera lyrics. You can also find pumpkin spice latte recipes to make at home and all the ways drinking a PSL makes you a better person.
Beyond being crazy delicious when mixed with espresso and copious amounts of sugar, physical squashy pumpkin has a lot of beauty benefits that seem to be forgotten in the shadows next to coconut oil. Pumpkin is packed with Vitamin A and C which contribute to collagen production, fruit enzymes and alpha hydroxy for brighter and smoother skin and hair. What's more, there are zinc in the seeds to combat acne. Why are we not all bathing in canned pumpkin already?!
There's no better time than fall to give pumpkin its well-deserved time in the beauty spotlight. I'd say buy these products for you and your friends, but honestly, you're just going to want to keep them all for yourself.
