Pumpkin is the official flavor and scent of fall. From visiting the pumpkin patch with family and friends to trying every pumpkin spice–flavored drink we can get our hands on, now is the time to join the pumpkin craze, especially since it is National Pumpkin Day.
This versatile gourd has deep ties with the fall season, but beyond its fame for being able to transform into a spooky jack-o-lantern, pumpkins also have many health and skin benefits. Pumpkins contain antioxidants that can protect skin from environmental damage and reduce inflammation, Dr. Joshua Zeichner, a board-certified dermatologist and the director of cosmetic and clinical research at Mount Sinai Hospital in New York City, previously told Shop TODAY.
So, if you haven't found a love for pumpkins yet, what are you waiting for? To help you celebrate National Pumpkin Day, lifestyle expert Kathy Buccio stopped by the 3rd hour of TODAY to share the best pumpkin products to buy. Read on to shop lip balms, face masks, wine and more.
