Who else is excited to celebrate the official start of fall? The temp may still be in the high 70's, but I've already visited Salem, MA, been mulling apple cider and decorating the studio with pumpkins.
For this aesthetician fall also means the start of peel season, pumpkin masques, and advanced treatments. Here's some fun pumpkin skincare facts and a DIY Pumpkin mask to get you in the spirit. Enjoy and get your fall treatment on the schedule soon!
Benefits of Pumpkin
- PACKED full of natural enzymatic AHA’s. These are perfect for at home skin care because it is gentle on your skin and not harsh that could cause micro tears in the skin.
- The AHA’s tone, soften and brighten the skin – it helps with pigmentation on the skin or sunspots.
- Pumpkin has a naturally occurring ABUNDANCE of Vitamin A and Vitamin C. Vitamin A is AMAZING for anti-aging. Vitamin C is perfect for collagen and elastin production. Vitamin C in the skin helps the production of cells for a youthful look.
- Pumpkin also contains zinc which is EXTREMELY healing in the skin with balancing oil. This helps hormone levels in the skin. It is also again naturally occurring.
- Fatty Acids and Vitamin E. This combo helps keep bounce, dew, and hydration in the skin.
2 tbsp. Organic Pumpkin Purée (fresh or canned)
1 tbsp. Honey
(Raw honey or ultra healing Manuka honey if you've got it.)
