Not only are pumpkins great for carving, they are also great for our skin, containing high levels vitamins A, C and E.
Your skin gets soothed by the vitamin A, while it gets repaired by the vitamin E, and gets the added benefit of vitamin C which produces collagen and provides your skin elasticity.
