One of the quintessential facial and body treatment ingredients of the fall season is pumpkin, which is rich in vitamins (including an array of B vitamins), minerals (including zinc), nutrients, enzymes, alpha hydroxy acids and antioxidants. Good for more than just carving into Halloween jack-o-lanterns or baking into pies or muffins, this gourd has powerful properties for replenishing and revitalizing the skin. The regenerative effects of pumpkin offer an antidote for skin that has survived the summer sun and now needs a boost to maintain balance throughout the fall.
Note: These seasonal treatments are all special that might not appear on the spa website; ask about their availability when calling to make an appointment.
