Fun Fall Things: The Pumpkin Facial

Oct 08, 2018in news

Fall is here and we’re featuring our seasonal favorite all month long: a 1-Hour Pumpkin Facial! 

In this facial service, we exfoliate, steam, massage, and use a pumpkin enzyme masque that makes all the difference. Whether you’re in love with pumpkin everything, or wish everyone would “just stop already” with this pumpkin craze — your skin will thank you for adding a little pumpkin to your monthly skin care routine.

According to Karla Keene L.E., the CEO and founder of ClarityRX, one of our skin care lines, pumpkin has many benefits for your skin:

  • Pumpkin contains the highest concentration of plant-based Vitamin A (beta carotene), a highly active antioxidant + age defyer that is also a rich storehouse of Vitamin C, potassium and zinc.
  • Pumpkin enzymes target skin cell receptors responsible for stimulating cell turnover, which reveals a healthier, younger-looking complexion.
  • The proteolytic enzymes found in pumpkin pulp can break down the keratin (protein) bonds and digest dead skin cells causing a light natural sloughing (exfoliation) of the outer layer of dead cells without damaging the skin’s infrastructure.
  • Vitamin C, also abundantly present in pumpkin pulp, is another active antioxidant beneficial in warding off free radicals to put the brakes on premature aging of the skin.
  • Pumpkin enzymes soften the debris in the pores and allows the skin to naturally detoxify itself. It is also reported that pumpkin enzymes can rejuvenate collagen growth within the skin tissue.

The results? Your skin will feel refreshed and youthful. Make a Pumpkin Facial your favorite fall time activity. Prices may vary by location. Visit your local Hand & Stone location for details.

Happy Fall!
