PumpkinPerhaps the most famous of all fall foods, pumpkin packs a major punch of nourishment, even in small amounts — especially for your skin. “Pumpkins are an ultimate beauty food because they’re rich in beta-carotene, which our body converts into the natural wrinkle smoother, vitamin A (aka natural retinol),” says Serena Poon, celebrity chef and holistic nutritionist. “Vitamin A also helps protect our cells and skin from damaging free radicals in the environment and is important for eye health and age-related diseases.”

Pumpkin is also chock-full of additional vitamins and minerals such as zinc, an excellent acne-fighter and promoter of cell turnover for renewal. “It’s also full of natural enzymes which make it great for a topical mask to dissolve flaky skin cells,” Poon says.
