The Pumpkin Spice of Skincare!

October is the month of Pumpkins!!  And not only do I delight in the smell of pumpkin spice, but I love that pumpkin is a powerhouse for your skin!  Here are some of the favorite facts for why pumpkin should not just be for the Fall… but for every day!

  • Pumpkin is loaded with anti-oxidants, which is perfect to repair all the sun damage done to our skin during the Texas summer months.
  • A great natural exfoliator, pumpkin provides enzymes which can melt away dead skin cells and energize new skin with a bright glow and a soft, supple feel.
  • Pumpkins are full of vitamins, especially Vitamin A, C and E, which are great anti-aging vitamins to fight off the wrinkles!
  • Pumpkin also contains Zinc and Niacin, which are some of the best natural ingredients to reduce the inflammation and outbreaks of acne.

Our PAPAPYA and PUMPKIN MASK is a “Must Have” masque which incorporates Pumpkin Seed Extract and a special active Papaya derived enzyme in a crème base to texturize and smooth the surface of your skin. Our patients who suffer with acne, or who have sensitive skin, will love this masque!
