The Benefits of a Pumpkin Peel for Anti Aging and Acne

You know that pumpkin tastes good in a latte and smells wonderful baked into pie, but have you ever considered slathering it on your skin? Pumpkin packs an impressive amount of nutrients that increase cell turnover and can smooth and brighten your complexion. If you’re looking for a natural way to fight the signs of acne and aging to reveal a confident, beautiful you, say “hello” to pumpkin.

Why choose a pumpkin peel?

After a summer of harsh sun exposure, a pumpkin peel presents a gentle, soothing and hydrating solution to improve the texture of your skin. Pumpkin is rich in vitamins A and C, beta-carotene, potassium, and zinc. It’s also loaded with antioxidants that help fight free radicals, as well as hydroxyl acids and natural enzymes that exfoliate and improve skin tone. Bonus: a pumpkin peel is a refreshing and relaxing way to pamper yourself, which is never a bad thing.

How pumpkin helps clear up acne

If you have acne, a pumpkin peel is a great way to stimulate circulation and promote healing without the use of chemicals, which can irritate sensitive skin. The key ingredients in a pumpkin peel are formulated to penetrate deep into your pores to remove debris and dissolve dead skin cells, all while strengthening collagen beneath the skin’s surface and calming any existing flare-ups. 

Fight the signs of aging with pumpkin

Ever wish you could turn back time to reveal a smoother, more youthful complexion? A pumpkin peel can help you do just that. When applied to the skin, the alpha hydroxy acids and beta hydroxy acids immediately get to work exfoliating dead cells and promoting the cell renewal process, which helps younger cells come to the surface. The result is a smoother, more taut complexion that shaves years off your appearance.

What’s involved in a pumpkin peel treatment?

When you arrive at Siti Med Spa, our professional staff will first take the time to make sure you’re comfortable and that all of your questions have been answered. Prior to treatment, we will clean your skin to remove any oil, makeup or dirt. Next, we’ll prime your skin with an acidic base to aid in exfoliation. Then, the pumpkin peel will be applied to your face. 

The pumpkin peel will feel warm for a few minutes, and then change to a pleasant, tightening feeling. Because a pumpkin peel isn’t as intense as many other peels, there is no downtime following treatment, and you’ll see immediate results. Be sure to moisturize following a pumpkin peel to nourish the new layer of skin that has come to the surface.
