Why Pumpkin Peel Facial?

Pumpkin is a rich storehouse of Vitamin A, Vitamin C, Beta-Carotene, potassium and zinc. It is antioxidant-rich and helps in fighting free radicals in an effective way. It has natural enzymes that improve skin tone and the hydroxyl acids in pumpkin help to exfoliate skin. Hence, pumpkin peel helps to provide your skin with vital nutrients.

Pumpkin Peel Facial Treatment Benefits:

A pumpkin peel facial treatment has numerous benefits, some of which are as follows:

  • Improves texture of skin to make it look healthy and nourished.
  • Recovers overall complexion of face.
  • Targets hyper-pigmentation and acne problems.
  • Gets rid of dead skin cells by superior exfoliation.
  • Stimulates collagen and elastin production.
  • Perks up the cell renewal process.
  • Softens wrinkles as well as fine lines and brings about significant reduction in signs of aging.
  • Hydrates skin.

Pumpkin peels are neither as intensive as glycolic peels nor as deep as chemical peels. However, pumpkin peels are gentle on your skin. Often, other treatments are coupled with pumpkin peel facial to make you reap maximum benefits, depending upon your beauty problems. Oxygen infusion and microdermabrasion are some such treatments that are recommended along with pumpkin peels.

Pumpkin Peel Facial Steps:

The steps tend to vary from one salon to another as also from one person to another, based on the needs of the client. However, roughly you have the following steps to a pumpkin peel facial:

  • Cleansing the skin to do away with oil, makeup and dirt.
  • Cleansing your skin for the second time to make it squeaky clean.
  • Priming the skin with some acidic base for exfoliation.
  • Peel treatment meted out to your skin.
  • Face massage and moisturizing.

It is best left on experienced hands if you want to see your skin soaking in the goodness of a pumpkin peel facial treatment.
