Is pumpkin a superfood?!
Pumpkin is packed with vitamins, minerals and antioxidants giving it many health benefits!
It can boost your immune system, protect your eyesight, lower risk of certain cancers and promote heart health.
Pumpkin also has many benefits in skin care that can be incorporated into your fall facial! The antioxidants and Vitamins A and C help soften and soothe the skin and boost collagen production to reduce texture and signs of aging.
Another awesome benefit of pumpkin in skin care is that it contains Alpha Hydroxy Acid (AHAs) that encourages gentle skin exfoliation and cell turnover to aid in brightening and smoothing the skin. We use this enzyme in some of our facials which makes for the perfect pumpkin fall treatment!
Pumpkin seeds contain zinc which is beneficial for acne, helps control hormone levels and oil production and assists with healing the skin.
Our Favorite Fall Treatment
When it comes to this treatment, the cooler months provide the perfect time for micro-needling as more time with limited sun exposure is important in the after care. It also makes for a good fall-treatment as it can help to repair some of the damage to our skin from the summer months!
Sometimes known as CIT- Collagen Induction Therapy. Micro-needling creates micro injuries, that trigger the body to create healthy, new, collagen rich tissue. Great treatment option for acne scarring, fine lines, wrinkles, scars from trauma or incisions, skin tone, texture and getting ahead of aging.
