Pumpkins: An excellent way to exfoliate and brighten the skin!


Pumpkins.  Last night it was all about jack-o-lanterns. Now, we start thinking about pumpkin pies.

But did you know they are an excellent way to exfoliate and brighten the skin?

How would you like to tighten, moisturize and exfoliate your skin in one easy step? Get a Pumpkin Peel!

A ‘Peel’ is a treatment in which different types of acid are applied to the skin. The acids can be of varying strengths, and the strength determines the depth of the skin layer that the acid penetrates.

Papaya, pineapple, cranberry and pumpkin are frequently used as the base for fruit enzyme peels. Of these, pumpkin peels are extremely popular. They are a good option for people with sensitive skin or acne due to their mild, yet effective, nature. Pumpkin peels exfoliate and moisturize, delivering clarity and smoothness to the skin. Circulation is also stimulated, and healing is promoted by the presence of beta carotene and vitamin A.

Autumn and winter are the best times to have a fruit peel containing AHA since fruit acid treatments can cause photo-sensitivity. As you may be more sensitive to the sun, you should apply sunscreen before going outside.

So come in today and get a Pumpkin Enzyme Peel! Your skin will thank you!
