5 Pumpkin Peels The Pro’s Love Every Fall

Pumpkin Peels become all the rage in October in spas and skin care studios across the country.  Move over PSL, it’s time for Pumpkin Spiced Facials!

But it’s more than just an amazing aroma that has every licensed esthetician in the country fall’ing in love with Pumpkin!  Pumpkin is incredibly therapeutic for the skin!  In fact, here’s what an industry leader had to say about Pumpkin, in an article about his newly launched Pumpkin Perfecting Mask with Bakuchiol.

“Pumpkin is rich in antioxidants and vitamins. Pumpkin contains Vitamins C, E and beta-carotene, a precursor of Vitamin A that assists in reducing environmental stress, free radical damage and increases cell turnover.” Michael Pugliese, CEO Circadia Skincare
