Exfoliation with Pumpkins

 Exfoliation with Pumpkins

Over time, the surface of our skin can become rough, uneven and dull- looking from the build -up of dead skin cells that have not naturally shed off as they once did.  When we are young, our skin cells turnover about every 4 weeks, leaving the healthy glow of youth.  As we age, that cellular turnover slows down and can take up to 6-8 weeks, resulting in the rough, dull complexion that ages many of us. This rough texture can also be a result of prior and on-going photo/sun damage.

Exfoliation is key in ridding your skin of the build-up of these dead skin cells. There are many exfoliating products.  AHA’s such as glycolic acid and  BHA’s such as salicylic acid  and fruit enzymes are all effective in loosening the dead skin cells and brightening and smoothing your skin.

Pumpkin enzymes are great at eliminating surface dirt, oil and debris as well as exfoliating dead skin cell particles.   Pumpkin enzymes may be extracted from the peel of the pumpkin, the pulp of the pumpkin and the seeds. Pumpkin enzyme peels and facials are generally easier on the skin than other types of exfoliants.  Pumpkin treatments  also add  essential vitamins and nutrients to the skin. Vitamin A is a major ingredient in many treatments.  Vitamin A is widely known for its gold standard skin care benefits in stimulating collagen production and stimulating cell regrowth.

Pumpkin facial treatments will draw out impurities and smooth skin naturally using enzymes, vitamins and nutrients.  Following these gentle treatments your skin will have a healthy, youthful glow!
