Tarbucks’s legendary pumpkin spice latte was introduced in 2003, and since then, the sweet seasonal beverage has become more than just a beverage… It’s become a lifestyle. The PSL way of life, much like Holland’s hygge, is all about autumnal coziness: sweaters, scarves, hot chocolate. It may be “basic,” but I suppose that’s why it’s so popular. There’s just something about colorful leaves and gourd that strips a certain contingent of people of all their chill.
In (slightly ironic) honor of PSL season, we thought we’d take the opportunity to talk about out favorite pumpkin-infused skincare products. Pumpkin skincare isn’t a gimmick, though—the fruit is loaded with enzymes and alpha hydroxy acids, which help brighten and smooth the skin. Pumpkin seed is also shown to boost collagen production and contains tons of vitamins A and C, which soften the skin, as well as zinc, which combats breakouts.
